 I was at 3 cm at 36 weeks. Had my membranes stripped at 38 and 40 weeks

I was induced at 41 weeks 4 days and was still at 3 cm

I was 2 cm for about 3 weeks before I gave birth... your body is just getting itself ready to give birth.  If your cervix hasn't  thinned out yet... don't worry too much yet.

i tried everything LOL castor oil, labor cookies (eww), and walking. But to be honest, i swear by walking once your IN labor. I went into labor on a wednessday morning and i walked from like 7 to 4 and my labor was only 8 hours, and it was only that long because i refused to let them break my water until my mom got there LOL Once my water broke he was out in an hour :)

but for the other methods.... i dont really think they do any good. i dont think ANYTHING does, unless your READY to have the baby

I tried EVERYTHING to speed up labor when i was 38 weeks and 3cm dilated... Nothing worked, I power walked around the mall everyday after work, Drank Raspberry tea, had the worst sex of my life, and still had to be induced at 41 wks... It sucked!

My body didn't dialate the first time until my water was broke. The second time my body dialated fast. i was dialated to a 10 within 4.5 hours. every person is different. every pregnancy and delivery is different even for the same woman. go with what your doctor said and listen to your body.

I was 2cm in early June & wasn't due until Aug. 25th. Went in to be induced on the 25th of Aug & was still 2 cm. So I was that way for a while!!!!
