My sister was 3cm dialated and 50 percent effaced at 32 weeks, she did not end up having her baby until 42 weeks when they induced her. I personally have never been dialated or effaced with any of my babies. ~Kristin~

I was dialated 3-4 cm's for 6 weeks with baby #1 before I was finally induced.  With #2 I went to the OB on Thurs and she said NOTHING was happening I wasx already a few days post due.  She was born rather quickly on Friday night/ early sat morning.  My doc said it's more common to dialate early with #1.  Good luck!!  Are you contracting??

With my last pregnancy they checked me at 28 weeks bc of lots of pressure, i was 2 cm, and by 34 weeks i was 3 cm, and I didnt get to 4 until active labor... and had her 2 days before 38 weeks, so I went at least 10 weeks being that dilated. There's no magic answer and dilation doesnt mean labors coming soon... as much as we wish it did mean that.

I wish there was something we could look up to find out when we would go into labor!!

You could still be like that for a while or it could be tomorrow...you never know. Since your not effaced then I would say you still have have a few more weeks but then again you never know!

I was at two cm the last two OB appointments before I had my daughter.. But I was at least 50% effaced at both of them, too.. It just all depends on how fast or slow your body will move.. If you aren't effaced at all, I'd say that it will still be a little while.. But it all depends on your body and when it is ready! Good luck!
