Hi! I am having my second baby, well he his due May 7th and I started my weekly doctors appointments today and she told me I was 1 cm dialated, 50 % effaced.. This didn't happen w/ my first so my hubby is freaking out! He thinks he is coming tomorrow.. Anyway just wondering if any ladies out there had the same thing told to them and how much longer until they delivered. I know every one is different but I wanted to ask anyway..
Hope everyone is having a great day!!!!

I know everyone is different but i remember the doc telling me the same thing. I went almost two weeks after that before I actually felt the contractions and was in ''real'' labor. I think you can rest awhile

I think thats pretty normal. It could be tomorrow or you could go until your due date. I was 1 cm dialated when I was 6 months pregnant! He was my second and I was 3 cm and 75% for the last month. I was on bedrest at 6 months. Everyones different.

I hate to tell you this, but it could be AWHILE!!

My first, I was 80% effaced and 3cm for almost 6 weeks! I was 4cm and 90% effaced the day they induced me.

My second, I was at a 2 and 50% effaced for the 2 weeks prior to induction.

My third, spontaneous labot, I was at a 1 and 60% effaced for 3 days. Went in, and I was 3cm and 90% effaced.

My fourth, again, spontaneous. I was at a 1cm and 40% effaced for about 5 weeks. Was at a 4 when I went in.

My fifth, well, I was at a 1 and stayed at a 1. She was a preemie and sideways.


Like I said, it could be awhile. It really is VERY different for each pregnancy!

I had my daughter on March 19, 2007, it was a scheduled c section at gbmc.  Anyways, I was 2 cm dilated, 80 % effaced and -1 station and in active labor for the 4 weeks preceeding the c section.  I was miserable, but nothing happened, i never went into full labor.  All they really do is monitor you closely.  Chances are you will make it atleast another week or so before you have your baby. Good luck with everything and dont get too worried....
