Answer THIS DEPENDS BUT GENERALLY SPEAKING NATURE ALLOWS A HEALTHY BABY TO BE BORN AT THIS AGE. IF BABIES HEART BEAT IS STRONG BABY'S WELL LUNGS MEDICALLY …DR AT STAGE LETS NATURE TAKE ITS' COURSE FOR DRLIVERY. YOU CAN GO INTO LABOUR FROM 2 HRS ON, DEPENDING IF YOU ARE MEDICALLY FIT, LED A HEALTHTY LIFESTYLE. NO ONE CAN TELL YOU FORCERTAIN, EXCEPT A MIDWIFE OR OBSTETRIAN WITH YOU. ALSO, HAVING OTHER CHILDREN IS SUPPOSED TO QUICKEN THINGS UP. FROM MY OWN EXPERIENCES BOTH MY LABOURS WERE VERY DIFFERENT, AS WELL AS THE BIRTHS. . . . . GOOD LUCK
Answer Very often preterm labor can be stalled with medication and/or home or bed rest until the baby is more mature to be delivered.
You have to go on a ten hour car ride you are 36 weeks pregnant and only 1 cm dilated Will the car ride make put you into perterm labor?
Taking a 10-Hr Ride While 36 Weeks First off for safety reasons, you shouldn't be in a vehicle for that long. Especially if you don't have a cell phone or know wh…ere the local hospitals are on your route. Second, if you are going to be in a car for that long then be sure to take frequent stops to walk around and relax. I've done that before. I was about the same number of weeks when I decided to take my 3 year old down to South Carolina from North Dakota. That is at least a 19 hour drive with a stop in Missouri and then another 11 hours to South Carolina. I did have some pain from driving but I made it there safe. Make sure to bring a cell phone, take your breaks, and pray. When you get there, pray again and thank whichever God you worship that you made it there without delivering. But honestly, you shouldn't take the drive. It is really stressful on you and the baby. However, if you are like me and stubborn and independent make sure to follow the rules of having a cell phone and knowing where the hospitals are on your route. Good luck in your choice.
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
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.
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 had some fluid leak at 32 weeks and went to hospital. the doc said my cervix was long and soft. a soft cervix does not mean labour is on the way, sorry to disappoint!!… i am now 35 weeks and baby still in there! unfortunately all labours vary, some women can dilate very quickly and others could take over a week! with my first (this is my second) i had no symptoms on the day, by late night i had some backache, after an hour of back pain i was taken to hospital and told i was fully dilated! i was 37 weeks. my friend was 1cm dilated for 3 days and her entire labour lasted over a week, dilating slowly and painfully everyday or so. with my second baby tho, the head descended quite painfully at 30 weeks and i have been 3/5 engaged since then with a soft and long cervix. this means the cervix is thick - no sign of labour or dilation. walking definitely helps baby move down and ease your labour pains as well as occupy you in labour. sex is also a great way to help baby descend further, the semen ripens the cervix and helps dilation and your own orgasm helps encourage baby to move down. Castor oil is meant to help but can give you the runs and may pass through the placenta so imagine what it does to baby. in my opinion, curry, pineapple and raspberry tea are old wives tails!!
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 :)
Yes, a woman can go into labour at any time during her pregnancy. When it occurs determines what medical definition it gets. If you go into labour before 37 weeks it is …called preterm labour. The infant born will then be called "prem" If labour occurs before 22 - 23 weeks it is called spontaneous abortion.
It all depends on when the baby is ready. You can be thinned out and dilated for some time before labor truly begins.
nipple stimulation, walking, sucking your thumb (it hits a pressure point at the roof of your mouth... all of these stimulate contractions.. Congratulations!!!
you have all the old wifes tales like exremely spicey food and jumping up n down on the spot ect ect...but personally i believe there is nothing you can do but sit and wait! m…ake sure everything is just perfect for your little baby coming and go through your hospital bag 10x or more to make sure u have everything like i did! hehe! Good luck for when it does happen and i wish you and your family all he happiness in the world :)
You are 36 weeks and went to the doctor yesterday she said that the baby's head is in position I'm 1 centimeter dilated and that she is really really low How long until labor begins?
the baby will come when he or she is ready to come, do not think that because it is coming "soon" that this means tomorrow or the day after, your body will take how long… it takes, there are no hard and fast rules, just be on your guard and monitor any pains you may have, it works not to be too anxious because there is nothing more disappointing than thinking the baby is on its way and being sent back home.
You are 35 weeks and you almost went into labor but the doctor stop your labor can sex put you into labor if you are 1 cm dialated?
Yes. Very much so! I would definitely check with your doctor and hold off on sex.
First of all, your baby is not ready to come out at 36 weeks and you should not be thinking about giving birth yet. Your baby is not considered "full term" until 37 weeks, bu…t even at 37 weeks, the chance of him/her ending up in the NICU from respiratory distress is quite high. The lungs are the last thing to develop in newborns and so it is important to wait until at least 38-39 weeks to give birth, if you have a choice. Most women will be disappointed to know that being dilated 1-2cm is not an indicator that labor will begin soon. You can walk around for many weeks like this, in fact.
Im 36wks and 3cm dialated but my cervix is not softened yet there is no sure way to get labor started your baby will come wgen it's good and ready!!
I spent 2 months that way... sorry, but it could be tomorrow, or weeks/months away =/
