How long will i stay dilated??

Im 2 cm dilated, 50% effaced, station 3. Last week i was 1cm. How long do i have before i have a new baby???? With my daughter it took me 2 1/2wks being dilated at 2cm before I went in labor. The Dr did a protein test to see if he'd be born within the next 2 wks & it was neg, so he's 99% sure it'll be atleast another 2wks.
Any advice???????
