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'. At 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 :)
