With #2 I was between 3 and 4 cm and 70%-80% effaced so it was about 7 hours later when we were admitted.

I was 2cm dilated, around 75% effaced at 39w2d, I had him exactly a week later.

About 3 weeks, lol. I was so sure he would be born sooner! But he came after his EDD anyway.

I should add that this is one of the reasons I decided to not be checked in future pregnancies. I looked into it and having your cervix checked does not give any indication of when you will go into labor. It isn't necessary and I was really discouraged that I didn't noticeably progress. Plus there is always the risk of infection. So I chose not to get checked at all with my second child and will not with this one either.

Quoting YzmaRocks:

Everyone is different and every pregnancy. No ne can tell you. You could go soon, days or weeks.

I only got checked with my first two do to pains. So with my third my midwife agreed that when I had the same pains. I did not needed to be checked. But with my first I was 1/2 cm and 5 hours in labor. My second I was 1cm and 5 days later went into labor. With my last I had those same pains. Which was dilating for 5 weeks before I had her. So I have no clue how far I was when I went into labor.

The whole effaced thing confuses me! I am on my 3rd pregnancy but have always had scheduled csections so I've never been checked for dialation or effaced!
