What would you like to do?
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 baby'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.

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.
How long will it take to get 100 effaced and to labor when you are 37 weeks 80 percent effaced and 2 cm dialated with your first child and you don't know the baby's station but he is in position?
Answer YOu won't know all you can do is stay hydrated and go for a walk. Walking speeds up the process. Or try some old wives tales like eating spicy food.… Your body will know when it the best time. Some people pop at 37 weeks, that is there done time. Answer It can take days to weeks. It just depends on how your body dialates. I was in labor for 37 hours fully effaced and only dialated to three cm. with my first child. I ended up with a c-section. It wasn't to bad just as painful as labor. GOOD LUCK
You are 37 weeks and 5 days and you are dilated to 2 and 80 percent effaced how soon should or could you go in labor?
Answer Sometime in the next 5 weeks. Sorry I can't be more helpful. I have examined women with a closed uneffaced cervix and they hav…e had the baby 2 hours later (it happened to me) and others in your position who go another 3-4 weeks. How soon? You are in labor. But You mean full blown labor. And that depends on your body and your babys hormones. Most likely within the next week. The best way to encourage full labor is to walk, walk, walk, and be sure to drink lots of water so you stay hydrated. If you are having false pains the walking will make them go away. Mom of five
Will labor start soon if you are 35 weeks 5 days and 1 cm dilated and 90 percent effaced and the baby is at -2 pelvic station?
Answer usually not. more likely to in this circumstance if one is having contractions now and then and if it is a first baby.
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.
You are 37 weeks and 4 days pregnant and 1 cm dilated and 60 percent effaced and at -3 how much longer do you have?
Answer happy birthday mommy, less than a week
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 37 weeks pregnant 2 cm dilated and 80 effaced Today i am having a lot of contractions do you think this is labor How soon do you think I could have this baby?

Same situation here! But just to let you know hun, it may be tomar, a week, or all the till your 40 weeks, and have to be induced. Every womens body is different. I have bee…n effaced, and dilated since 30 weeks, and here I am 2 and 80 at 36...Hang in there! It maybe a lot longer. ~~Baby Girl
I am 37 weeks 2 days pregnant 80 percent effaced a good 2 cm dilated my doctor says I'll have the baby in less than 10 days but how soon do you think it could be?
Here is my timeline if it helps. I'm 37 weeks 2 days also and my ob said at my last appointment 4 days ago that I'm 80% effaced and dilated to a 'loose 3cm'. A…t my appointment 7 days before that I was 80% effaced and 2cm. I've been contracting since week 34 and they got regular so I was given terb shots and niefedipine until I got to week 36 because of pre-term labor. Now my Doc's say if I go into labor they won't stop me but 'sod's law' my contractions have become eratic and unreliable and I'm not going into labor now!!! Frustrating! My Doc won't induce until week 39 so I just hope my water breaks as I am very concerned that the baby is going to be to large if it stays in that long. I am holding out hope that your Dr says the baby will be born in 10 days and I hope it is true. Best of luck to you. I hope the time passes quickly for you during the home stretch :)
35 weeks is a bit early, at least 3 weeks early as normal gestation is 38-42 weeks, but the baby still has a good chance of survival at this stage. He may need breathing tubes… after delivery because this is when the lungs are developing so that he can breathe when he is born, but the success rate is actually very high (at least it is in the US), especially considering there aren't any (or many) other high risk factors involved. Three centimeters isn't much, considering that you need to reach 10 cm for a vaginal delivery. Seven centimeters is a long way to go! Effacing is the thickness (or thinness) of the cervix. 100% is paper-thin. If you are a first-time mom, the cervix will usually efface before it dilates. Subsequent births will usually dilate before it effaces. Dilation must catch up to effacement before vaginal delivery can occur properly. So, if you are a first time mom, you probably still have a way to go. New mothers usually have a relatively long labor along with fairly quick delivery. Subsequent births, probably still have a way to go, but it may also come quicker. Previous mothers usually have a faster labor along with a fairly quick delivery. In any case, if the delivery is not at the right speed for the mother and baby, a caesarian may be necessary. The thing to look for here is any labor pains (ie contractions) or your water breaking (even if you feel no contractions). Don't get frightened if you feel contractions slowly. You are looking for 5 minutes apart, lasting about 1 minute each, and that is when the doctor will tell you to head to the hospital (earlier if you have quite a distance to travel to get to the hospital). When they are close to this and regular, but not quite there, that is also a good time to call the doctor and/or head to the hospital. However, if your water breaks and you feel no contractions, you need to get to the hospital right away. A delivery needs to happen within 24 hours of water breaking to avoid injuries and infections (sometimes devastating ones) to the baby. If labor doesn't progress as it should, pitocin may be administered to help speed contractions and dilation along. If that doesn't work, a caesarian may be in order.
You are 37 weeks and 2 days and you are dilated 2 and 90 percent effaced how soon should you go into labor?
You may not going into labor for several weeks. Women can walk around 4-5 cm dilated for a while before going into labor. Your body is doing some of the preliminary wor…k for you!
What if you're 39 weeks pregnant with second child 80 percent effaced 2 cm dilated baby at plus 1 pelvic station?
If your first child is under five years of age, you can expect this delivery to take about half the time it did before. Isn't that a lovely thought? That's the good news…, the bad news is that this baby still isn't coming until it's good and ready! So, get your things together, and make all the arrangements you need for childcare for the older one. Then, enjoy the last few hours of pregnancy! You probably have less than three days!
there is not really anyway to tell i was 100% effaced and 2 cm dilated for like 2 weeks... then funally she came a day before her due date but for 3 weeks my ob was saying she… thought i was gonna be early lol so its just a waiting game now an for me it felt like forever but he or she will come soon anough good luck congrats,,, cortney
