  • Sorry with my first I was 4 cm dilated for about 3 weeks and then had to be induced. With my second I can't remember what I was dilated although I did go very fast with him. Because I went so fast with my second and my first although induced only lasted 4 hours, I had to be induced with my 3rd.

    Good Luck and Congrats!

  • Good for you, you're getting there!! I was walking around 4cm dilated and overdue by 10 days with my 2nd child, so I guess i'm not the one to ask!! However, once labor started it did go fast.

  • I was stuck in the same boat with my daughter I was 2cm and 50% efaced. and a week past my due date. I was having back labor the entire time and of course the nurses thought I was nuts because the contractions wouldnt read on the monitor. However they sent me home and and I ended up going back a few hours later after taking a warm bath. however I was still at 2 cms and the hospital I went to had a whirlpool tub so I got in it and 20 mins later I was ready to deliver. Hope it helps

  • It all depends, I think... I know people who are dilated for weeks before anything happens.
