Doctor told me yesterday I am 1cm dilated and my cervix is really soft, does that mean I'll dilate faster?

My doctor yesterday told me that I'm 1cm dilated and my cervix is really soft, so does that mean I'll dilate faster? My due date is this Friday. So I'm trying to get to 2cm by next Monday cuz she told me if I reach 2cm by next Monday they'll talk to me about inducing me, but if I don't they'll make me wait another week or 2. I don't wanna wait that much longer.. Especially since Christmas is like 2 weeks away I for sure wanna have him before Christmas. So since my cervix is really soft does that mean I'll dilate faster?

Everyone is different. I was dilated 2cm since I was 35 weeks. I ended up having an emergency c-section because I wasnt progessing. Hoping it ends up different for you.

I was 2-3 cm dilated for almost 4 weeks and my DD came on her due date. He will come when he's ready. I do know walking helps to loosen things down there :)

Does pineapple really work? I have heard so many people say that.

dunno, but try to go some natural route of getting baby out cuz being induced isn't fun. idk why so many dr's just throw that out as an option now...

I was really thin at like 36 weeks and not dialated at all. When I went into labor 3 days after my due date, I still was not dialated but really thin. I had my daughter 9 hours later. But I also went into the jet tub which relaxed me so I dialated faster.

unfortunately it doesn't really  mean anything. I stayed at 3cm and about 80% effaced for about 6 weeks. (could have been longer since I wasn't checked before 36 weeks.)
