  • I was 1 cm for weeks and weeks. At 40 weeks, I went into labor. 11 hours of contractions, and it wouldn't open further than 2, even with pitocin.

    You can last a very long time at 1.


    Good luck!

  • Same here. 1cm for last month of pregnancy. Induced with cervidil and pitocin and never got past 4. Good luck!

  • Everyone is different, but I was a 1 for a couple of weeks, then a 2 for another few days, then finally a 3...

  • No way to really predict it. Get a bag packed and wait for further developments.
