Today I went to my OBGYN appt. They said that the baby's head is really low (i forgot how much effacted I am but I THINK he said 90%) and that I am 3-4 cent. dilated. How much longer do you think I have?

Honestly, it could be 2 days to 4 weeks.   But hopefully, sooner, eh?

Everyone is different.  It could be tonight or it could be weeks.  There is really no way to tell.

it depends on the person...You could be that way for weeks or you could go into labor tomorrow...it's very hard to say.. My one friend walked around 5cm's for a month!!

I was 1cm and 80% effaced for 2 weeks then at my 38 week I was at 4cm. My ob/gyn sent me upstairs and started me on pitocin so it could be tonight or Christmas day. Its up to your baby

I have been dilated to 3 for 3weeks now which is fine with me I am only going on 32 weeks so the longer I stay this way the better I am kinda wondering when they will check me again the only reason I got check in the first place was because I had a internal u/s to see the babies brain because he is so  deep in my uterus good luck How far along are you anyways ?

I know exactly how you feel! I walked around at four cm for a month with my last child and he was even late!
