Dilated 1 cm already.

Went to my 38 weeks OB and dilated 1 cm. I'm so excited! How many weeks did you guys dilated? How long do I have to wait to have my baby now.

  • Really, I'm so nervous. It's been so long since I've been pregnant and going through this again. Hopefully she come out soon!! I hate being pregnant with this kind of HOT weather.

  • I am usually dilated for the last two months between 1 and 3 centimeters. Sadly it is not a very good indication of when you might deliver.

  • 1 cm is nothing. people can be there for months.

  • Like pp said that does not indicate when you will deliver. Lots of women are 1cm at 38 weeks. Some go into labor that night, some next week, some on their due date, some after ther due date.....etc....

  • i was 1cm dilated at 35 weeks and had DD at 40. people can stay at 1 for a long time. I moved up to 3cm dilated at about 38 weeks and just kept there for awhile too. it all depends on baby and when he/she is ready to make their grand entrance.
