Dialation at _ Weeks _ Days (Fill in the blanks)

I was checked at my appointment this morning and I'm only 1 cm dialated so far and I'm 36 weeks 5 days. :( I know it's fairly normal for my stage, but I was hoping I was at least a little farther along. This is my first, so I'm awfully optimistic. lol

For those who have had kids before, what was your dialation around the last weeks of your first pregnancy?

0 dilated, 0 effaced, not dropped at 39 wks 2 days. Had him at 39 wks 6 days.

ETA: Dilation really means nothing. I know of a mom who was 0 and 0 in the morning at her appt and went into labor later that day on her own. I also know of a mom who was 3-4 cm dilated and effaced for 4 weeks and had to be induced.

I was 4cm, fully effaced and at station 0 for 2 months before I had my first. She was born at 43 weeks.

I was no cm, not effaced or engaged 4 days before I had my 2nd at 40 weeks.

All that actually means nothing. Not sure why they check so much. You can have 0's all across and have the baby that night.

It's my first I'm anxious as well but there's no way to tell! Good luck!

I was 1/2 cm dialated at 27 weeks along with this one. WITH my others... not dialated at all. So, this is a big change for me. I have been in and out of the L&D *last night being the last* because of me thinking I was in labor. Good luck w/ the rest of your pregnancy :)

I was at 2 cm at 37weeks, can't remember the days exactly but I ended up being induced at 39 weeks and 1 days at 3cm.
