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. 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

Impossible to say

1 cm dilated 80 percent effaced -1?

This means your cervix is open 1 cm (you need to dilate to 10 cms to birth the baby). Your cervix is 80% effaced which means it is getting very thin -- you need to be 100% effaced. -1 refers to where baby is in relation to the coccyx (tailbone or "spines"). There are "stations" for baby's position. To give birth, you need to be 10cms dilated, 100% effaced and baby needs to be at at least +2 station.

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 cervical 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!
