I am thirty seven weeks and I had an examine yesterday and they said that the top of my cervix is VERY soft....does that mean I will become dialated soon.... This is my second child and I sure do feel like I will be going early with this one...

  • Soft just means it is ripening and preparing labor.

    It is a sign your body is getting ready to give birth but no indicator of WHEN you will go into labor. You could be 85% effaced, which is softened and thinned out, and dilated to 4 and STILL not go into labor for WEEKS!
