I'm almost 38 weeks and I have been 4cm dilated for over a week now. How long were you dilated before you went into labor? How many cm were you when you went into labor?

We're you admitted just because you were 4cm or were you having contractions as well?
Quoting engagedandproud: 2 at 37 weeks, one at 40 weeks

I was 4-5 cm dilated from 34-35 weeks, until I gave birth with my oldest, at 39 1/2 weeks.

I was 2-3 CM with my first from 35ish weeks until I was induced, they said I was almost 44 weeks.

With my last baby - I was 3-4 CM dilated, for 2-3 weeks and went into labor at 38 weeks exactly.

That's impressive. Cool that your still pregnant, I go into labor at 1cm. Once I dilate any my body just keeps going.

1st five hours before my water broke. I was 1/2 cm. I had pains and she checked me to see if it was that. If I wasn't it could be something else and would need to be tested for other things.

2nd - Same pains and should have never said anything to my Dr. She had to check and I was 1cm for a week before I had her.

3rd - I have no clue. I had the same pains as my first for over 5 weeks.

I never dilate until labor starts. I've had 5 babies and only dilated with my first baby to 1cm two days before I had him.
