How can you be 4 and a half cm dilated effaced and in active labor but not be feeling any severely intense labor contractions?
Because you are very lucky! All women are different. Some dilate to higher numbers and 100% effaced and don't feel a thing. Just luck of the draw. It doesn't mean anything is wrong or that the labor will be better or worse in later stages. It just means that you are having a very easy labor up to now.

At 38 weeks pregnant how soon can active labor start when you are 4 cm dilated and effaced 90 percent?
Answer Any time now. Good Luck.
Answer alot of it depends of if this is your first of multiple pregnancy. has the baby dropped down in the birth canal or not. the baby could not be head f…irst and could be laying sideways. there are too many unknowns here to answer correctly.
I would say........ SOON! I know when I was pregnant I felt like it would take forever! I thought I would always be pregnant and when the Dr. told me I was… fully effaced (which just means thinned out) and 3cm dialated I got so excited! I knew it would be SO SOON! I went four days after finding out this tid bit of information before I went into labor. Good luck! Pam Answer Yes it's a great sign that when you do go into true labor,it may not be terribly long and drawn out as a lot of the work is already done ( just the other 7 or so cm dilation to go!).On the other hand , you can go from being not very far dilated or effaced in a matter of minutes,so never be disheartened by what staff tell you.
How long does it take to go into labor if you are 37 weeks 4 cm dilated and fully effaced but baby hasn't dropped?
Answer The baby can drop in labor. It is always not easy to distinguish when the baby drops. I have had 3 children and never knew when they dropped I only …knew when labor kicked in.
When you are 37 weeks pregnant how soon can active labor start when you are 1 cm dilated and effaced 90 percent?
Theoretically, as long as you are past the point where the fetus is viable, active labor can begin any time in any pregnancy, no matter how much you are dilated or effaced. Th…is means you could go into active labor in four minutes, four days, four weeks, etc. There's really no way to tell.

I am also 1cm dilated and 80% effaced...1 week ago I was 1 cm dilated and 70% effaced. It is different for everyone...Although my DR. said the norm was 3 days after you …lose your mucus plug...good luck
If you are 90 effaced 3 cm dilated and the baby is at a positive 1 station how long until active labor starts Is there a way to hold it off?
Could be hours to days to weeks. Everyone is different. You will probably start active labor within 24 hours. There is no stopping labor at this point.
How soon can labor be expected if you were 2 cm dilated and 60 effaced at 30 weeks and hospitalized for preterm labor now on bed rest at 32 weeks taking nifedapine 4 times a day to stop contractions?
Answer I was put on bed rest and Nifedipine at 29 weeks. I was dialated to 1 1/2 and 50% effaced. I am now 38 weeks. I have been off of Nifedipine for 1 week now …and am 60% effaced and not dialated. You could very easily make it to you due date.
You are 40 weeks and 3 days pregnant 4 cm dilated and 100 effaced however things are moving so slowly that you are unsure as to how much longer you should expect to be in labor any testimonials?
IVE BEEN THERE. YEAH YOU'RE ABOUT THERE. I GOT 4 KIDS AND MY LAST WAS OVER DUE (4MTHS AGO) I USED CASTER OIL TO SPEED THINGS UP. 1-3 TABLESPOONS CHASED DOWN WITH ORANGE …JUICE SHOULD HELP YOU OUT. OLD MIDWIVES TRICK
I am 37 weeks pregnant with my second child 4 cm dilated and i am 80 percent effaced will labor start soon?
Im 37 weeks and dialted almost four as well, but my doctor told me that it is perfectly normal for woman to walk around up to 8 cm dilated. Every woman is different and when b…aby's ready to come s/he will come. Theirs no telling when it could be. With my first I didn't even have a warning. I mean I was cramping on and off for weeks but one day I just started laughind and my water just broke. And, this one theirs nights I've had contractions left and right, a min long but he still hasn't came and I have had less and less sighs of labor as times passed. So, theirs no need to worry yourself more than pregnancy already makes you. When s/he's ready sweetie you'll both know it.
You are 37wks 3 cm dilated and 60 effaced and your mucus plug fell out monday and now its wedsnday when will you go into labor and I've been having contractions off and on for weeks.is labor close?
There's no definite answer as to when you will go into labor some women can reach 4cm & stay that way for weeks! Contractions are a very good sign. A good way to speed up your… effacement is to do curb walking.....walk along a curb with one foot up on the curb and one foot on the ground, kind of a waddle....walk as far as you can then turn around and alternate the foot that is now up on the curb and walk back.....repeat this as often as you can and for as long as you can. You could also climb stairs 2 at a time. What you want to do is get that baby's head rotating & pushing against your cervix that's what's going to open it up!

time will tell could be today, tomorrow, or 2wks
Labor is defined as regular contractions that cause progressive cervical change. The key is CHANGE, so it is hard to tell when labor will start based on your dilation an…d effacement. Alot of women can spend weeks being 3cm/50% and not be in "labor" because their cervix isn't changing. If you are dilated, then it is safe to assume you will soon be going into labor, but that is not always the case.
If you are 4 cm dilated and 85 percent effaced and have starting having false labor how long until you go into true labor?
It totally depends! If you think you are going into labor, call your doctor or just go into the hospital. They will be able to tell you. I was 3 cm dilated for weeks a…nd weeks! I got up to 70% effaced by 38 weeks. I went into labor and went into the hospital, however they sent me home because I didn't dilate past 3 cm in the entire hour I was there. 6 hours later I had my baby! So it happened very quickly for me. Pretty much RIGHT when I got home from my first trip to the hospital I started going into true and hard labor! Good Luck. :)
It's very hard to predict. However, it sounds likely that you will go into labour fairly soon. Make sure you have everything ready!
You don't have to be effaced or dilated to go into labor. But this could mean u will be waiting for the bundle of joy little longer! Good luck!
