What would you like to do?
Well, your chances are kinda slim. More than likely youre going to go into labor within the next week and a half, maybe 2. Youre around delivery time, and it sounds like that baby's ready to come out. But it also depends on how fast you're dilating.

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
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.
You are 35 weeks 4 days pregnant with twins you are 75 effaced and dilated to a loose 1 Will you go into labor soon the babies are almost 6 pounds and you are so uncomfortable?
It could happen any time. Try taking a walk.
If you are 35 weeks pregnant and 2cm dilated and about 50 effaced will walking and going up and downstairs help you go in to labor?
Answer Call your OBGYN
You were 70 effaced and 2 cm dilated at last weeks docs appt but this week you are still 2cm dilated and 80 effaced do you have a week or two until you go into labor or am you going to go sooner?
My doc says that for first time moms there is no way to tell. Some people stay that way for weeks and some people go within a week from when they are 70% to 80% effaced …but it is very good to be getting this much pre-work done - it means you'll probably have a better labor.
When will labor begin if you are fifty percent effaced two centimeters dilated the baby is at minus two station and you are thirty six and a half weeks pregnant?
I'm sure you hate hearing people say this, but there is no way to determine how far off labour is by these statistics. As you may well know, dilation refers to the cervi…cal opening, effacement to thinning, and station to the presentation of the baby to the pelvis or nearing the cervix (from -5 to +5, while some physicians use -3 to +3 scale). The cervix has to be 100% thin or effaced, 10 cm dilated and the baby's head engaged before delivery can occur. You are half way through the effacement stage, not very dilated at all and your station indicates that your little one is still floating around ABOVE the pelvis, thus not yet engaged. Not to disappoint you, but labour could be weeks away for you. I am 38 weeks, have been 90% effaced and 3 cm dilated with baby engaged to +1 station for two weeks now- and no baby yet!!! Furthermore, my doctor is talking about inducing in another week if labour does not progress more. Hang in there. You still have some time left!
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 will be 38 weeks pregnant in 2 days. The doctor said that I was already dilated to 3 and that I wouldn't probably go until my induction date of the 21st (39 weeks) but I tri…ed the castor oil thing and it was really weird not to say one of the nastiest things I've ever swallowed in my life. i first tried 2 tablespoons, then the next day i tried 4 tablespoons, the next day i drank 4 ounces of the stuff, and I got nothing at all. No labor pains, no contractions, no nothing. I think that I is pure coincidence if someone goes into labor after drinking castor oil. If your body is not ready, then it won't do anything but put a bad taste in your mouth. Your baby will come when he/she is ready, the longer you wait, the more of the chance is, your baby will be happy and healthy. So if drinking over a half bottle didn't make me go into labor, i don't think it will do any good to even try it. Your baby will come when it's ready. BE Patient! and good luck :)
If you are looking for safe and effective, painless way to induce labor at home then maternity acupressure may be for you. Check out this website, http://yourmatern…ityresource.com/category/maternityacupreesure/ I bought the book, only $29 and it worked great, well worth the cost of the book. I was 41 weeks along, the best part it actually helped reduce the pain of labor and it was well worth the cost of the book to finally meet my beautiful baby boy. I would suggest that you check with your OB/GYN before trying to induce labor at only 39 weeks though.
You are 38 weeks and 80 percent effaced and 1 cm and the baby is -1 station how long will it be until you go into labor?
If you are -1, you ARE in labor. Contact a doctor ASAP.
With my last baby I was 3cm and 50% effaced for over a week, had my membranes stripped and my water broke 3 days later with no contractions. I had to be induced. He was my sec…ond. With my first one I was already 5 cm and 100% effaced about 15 minutes after I felt my first contraction. I was probably walking around dilating for weeks. You never know...they come when they are good and ready. I am 34 wks pregnant again and definitely will not try to rush it like I did the last time. (12 hr labor as opposed to 2 hrs with my first one that came when he was ready.)
Go for a walk or drive - it worked for me!
You are 38 weeks 3-4cm dilated 75 percent effaced babys head is station 2 plus and just lost your mucus plug are you close to labor?
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!
Sometime in the next three weeks! Only 5 to 10 percent of babies arrive on their due date. It really should be called an approximate date! Doctors are still not sure what the …mechanism is that causes labor to start. They know it is the right combination of hormones, causing contractions that will thin out the cervix to 10cm, and then cause the baby to be pushed down and out. But is it your body or the babies that trip the switch? They don't know. They know your body actually starts preparing for labor up to a month before you give birth. You may be completely unaware of what's going on --- or you may begin to notice new symptoms as your due date draws near. Here are some things that may happen in the weeks or days before labor starts: In a first labor the baby usually drops deeper into the pelvis before labor starts, but not always. When this happens you start feeling like it is easier to breathe, a little less pressure under your ribs. You may notice the baby is a little less active just before your labor starts too. If you have been having Braxton Hicks contractions, sometimes as true labor is getting close they become more painful, but the sign of true labor is the contractions keep coming no matter what you do, they become longer and stronger and closer together. A way to know the difference, drink a large glass of juice, take a shower, then lay down to take a nap. True labor is too painful to sleep through, but being dehydrated can cause contractions, being tense will make them more painful. So stay hydrated, stay relaxed and keep up on your rest. Over the last nine months a "plug" of thick mucus has sealed your cervical canal, some women notice white or pink tinged discharge as your cervix thins - shortly before you go into labor. The fact that your cervix is starting to dilate and thin out is a good sign that all is working as it should. Usually the bag of water your baby is floating in will not rupture until labor is under way, not always. It may break in a gush or may be a slow drizzle. But when it happens you should call your doctor or midwife, normally the fluid is clear; the presence of meconium, your baby's first stool, which is sometimes a sign of fetal stress and is important information to share. Note it it is thin and stringy or thick - yellow, green or brown. It's also important to let her know if the fluid looks bloody. If you think you may be in labor, but you aren't sure? Call - that's what the doctors are there for. If she can't tell over the phone she may have you go to the hospital to be checked, don't be upset if they send you home. Until you are in active labor home is the best place for you, you can relax, move around as you wish, bathe and eat light meals to keep up energy - all things usually deprived if you are delivering in a hospital. Walking, is also your friend, let gravity do some of the work for you. Any of the following are symptoms to share with the doctor, sooner rather than later: You have severe or persistent headaches, vision changes, intense pain or tenderness in your upper abdomen, abnormal swelling in your feet, legs, arms or face. You have vaginal bleeding (more than "just bloody show") constant abdominal pain vs contractions that come and go, or a fever. You notice that your baby is less active. Enjoy the last days of your pregnancy, it is something most of us only experience a couple times and most of us just want it to end at this point. But remember, this is a special time too. If you can get a manicure, pedicure and enjoy a nice soothing massage, now is the time. No telling when you will have a chance again.
