  • The only thing I can promise... you'll have the baby sometime in the next 7 weeks.

    Yes, second babies usually come a little before the due date. But not always.
    And as you probably know, you can walk around partly dialated for weeks and weeks. I was not quite 2 cm for 5 weeks before my daughter came.

  • I was 2cm 50% for 2 months. It could be a long time or it could be really quick. good luck

  • Probably and hopefully not. Baby's lungs aren't ready yet. I started dialating near the beginning of the last trimester with all of mine and went to 40+ weeks.

  • Not necessarily. I was diliated to 2 for the last two months had to be induced

  • I was dilated to 4 centimeters for the last 3 weeks of my second pregnancy.... totally stunk expecially since I was 9 days overdue when I finally delivered.... good luck though!
