I'm 37 wks and 75% effaced; is it likely that I'll deliver soon??

I am only dilated to a 1, though...

  • Eh, it could be any day or it could be another four weeks. I've been 2cm and effacing more and more for two weeks. I'm 40 weeks 2 days today.

    So who knows, you may get lucky. Or you might end up like me and being overdue : /

  • I was dialated to 4 and 75% effaced for over 2 weeks. It unfortunately is not a good way to tell. Hopefully soon
