Almost 20w and 1.5-2cm IM SO SCARED!!!

I will be 20w on Friday and I am 1.5-2cm and on bed rest. I see the Dr Friday to see if I have progressed at all. I am freaking out that my water will break ( like it did at 36w with DS) or that I will start to go into labor. Has anyone started dilating so early to go on and deliver at term?

I was dilated 3-4 cm and 70% effaced at 29 weeks and made it to 36 weeks. Good luck.

Some women are dilated 1-3cm throughout their pregnancies.

Were you put on medicine?

It is normal to be at least 1cm dilated the whole time with subsequent pregnancies. I was contracting and dilated to a 2 at 34 weeks but ended up being induced a week late. You just never know. Are you contracting often?

I am currently 33 weeks and have been dailated to 5-6 cm 70% effaced since I was 28 weeks. My water bag is in tact and I haven't gone into real labor. Alot of annoying false starts.
I have been told by my doctors that they have has patients hang out at 7 cm for weeks . Of course bedrest was all they were allowed

To Aprillee82, Is wrong for me to feel jealous? I mean come on...they get a head start!!! lol

 To the original poster, i have heard of women being dialated 1-2cm up until delivery at 36+ weeks, so I think your outlook is promising, just take it easy and stay in bed like doctor says :)

I wish you luck, keep us updated!

They stopped my contractions, I had to be on a magnesium drip for 2 days and two weeks after that I had to go in to get a shot to stop them again. But never put on meds. Just stick to bed rest, no heavy lifting, just take it easy.
