If you're 38 weeks pregnant with first child 3cm dilated 100 effaced and at plus 1 station what are the chances of not going into labor for weeks?
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.

If thirty five weeks pregnant two centimetres dilated and sixty percent efface how can you speed up labor?
Don't try it, your baby will be too early. Babies born before 37 weeks may have feeding and breathing problems. Also they have not laid down all the fat they need to keep wartm so may get cold very quickly. You baby is much better in your warm uterus than in the cold air or a plastic incubator..
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 . \nYOu 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 . \nIt can take days to we…eks. 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 ( Full Answer )
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 . \nSometime in the next 5 weeks.\n. \nSorry I can't be more helpful.\n. \nI have examined women with a closed uneffaced cervix and they have 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 m…ean 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.\nMom of five ( Full Answer )
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?

If you are 38 weeks with first pregnancy contractions 3 minutes apart lasting 70 seconds and dilated at a 2 with 80 effaced will labor come soon after having two cervatals?
Answer . \nIf your contractions are three min. apart then you probably already are in labor especially if you are already dilated and 80% effaced. If the contractions aren't regular then you aren't in labor but if it turns out that your not then you will most likely be going into labor really so…on. ( Full Answer )
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 . \nThe 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.
I am 75 percent effaced half a centimeter dilated and 39 weeks roughly how long until I go into labor?
same as you! . Hang in there. I am exactly where you are and ready for the baby to be here. These contractions are killing me. There is no way really to tell when you will go into labor. It could be today...or a week or two. My doc told me that he expected me to deliver any day now. It is great t…hat you are this effaced. I would say at least a week, but don't be surprised if sooner. Are you having contractions? That could say a lot too. Good luck! ( Full Answer )
You are 75 effaced and 1cm dilated and 35 weeks along how long till you go into labor i have lost my plug and having contractions here and there through out the day and night?
Answer . I would suggest calling your doctor. it all depends on your body. however, i know your pretty much safe until your 100 effaced and 10 cms, but that can happen quickly.
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. This 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?

I am 27 weeks and 4 days. I am 40 percent effaced and a fingertip dilated. What does a fingertip dilated mean. Can I still go to 40 weeks?
Answer . fingertip dilated could mean that you are less than or about at a 1. It is the 40% effaced that would be a concern being as early as you are. If the doctor puts you on some meds to control contractions and montors you regularly i see a little chance of you making it to 40 weeks. But i w…ould assume that you are going to go early. But hopefully the doctor can stop the dilation. I would say that as long as you don't progress then you will make it to 32-35 weeks. ( Full Answer )
My sister has been this way for almost a week and contracting irregularly and she is still sitting at home waiting?
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
You are 38 weeks pregnant and 1 cm dialated 50 effaced Would it be ok to take castor oil for induction?
I would recommend not taking anything without talking to your doctor first. If they want to induce you, they will give you medicine in the hospital. One way to "naturally" induce yourself is to have intercourse (it works for some people!!).
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.
You are 40 weeks and 3 days pregnant 4 cm dilated and 100 effaced however things are moving so slowly that you are unsure as to how much longer you should expect to be in labor any testimonials?
IVE BEEN THERE. YEAH YOU'RE ABOUT THERE. I GOT 4 KIDS AND MY LAST WAS OVER DUE (4MTHS AGO) I USED CASTER OIL TO SPEED THINGS UP. 1-3 TABLESPOONS CHASED DOWN WITH ORANGE JUICE SHOULD HELP YOU OUT. OLD MIDWIVES TRICK
I am 37 weeks pregnant with my second child 4 cm dilated and i am 80 percent effaced will labor start soon?
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. ( Full Answer )
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! ( Full Answer )
There are some suspicious advice about certain home remedies that are supposed to help a full-term pregnancy go into labor. But none of these are recommended and none of them are proven safe. There's really no way to force yourself to dilate further than you already have at this point. You will just… have to be patient and the baby will come out when it is ready. If you do not dilate when you should, you will have to be admitted into labor and delivery at the hospital. Under doctor's supervision you can be induced with pitocin which will speed the labor and delivery process. ( Full Answer )
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 been 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
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. ( Full Answer )
I am in the same boat! I am 38 weeks now, 2cm dilated and 90% effaced as well. I can tell you I have been that way for a week now. Everyone is different and the doctor says it doesn't necessarily mean anything - but the baby is definitely making it's way and of course your body is preparing for the …big day Shouldn't be too much longer, but don't get your hopes up too high. I know it has been a frustrating ride doing that. Be Blessed! ( Full Answer )
I am 37 weeks pregnant i am 2cm dilated 75 effaced last wk i was 1 cm my cervix was just soft when will labor start i think i lost my mucus plug this morning?
If you lost your plug, you should contact your ob/gyn right away, and make plans to go to the hospital. Congratulations!
Each person is different when it comes to pregnancy. Some women canstay at 1 CM dilated for a bit and then others can go right pastthat.
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 tried 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 :) ( Full Answer )
You're a wee bit early, but by the time you read this answer you should be there.
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://yourmaternityresource.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. ( Full Answer )
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 work for you!
They say having sex helps , a lot of walking helps. you can talk to your Dr. he/she can set up a date to induce.
My girlfriend says YES probably, your at term....get ready maybe u'll lose the water....so you can go to the hospital as soon as poosible
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 second. 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.) ( Full Answer )
If I am 38 weeks 2cm dilated 80 percent effaced baby's head is engaged I am nauseated and have been having loose stools for the past few days How much longer till I go into labor?
I am 39 weeks and 3 days Im a good 2.5 cm and 80 percent effaced. your baby could come in a day or 10 days....it all comes down to when baby wants to come he/she will come. you could dialate from a 2 to 5 over night.....or you could be a 2 for 2 more weeks...there is no way of telling. Your best bet… to help you along the way is sex. Seamen has patosin in it which is the same thing doctors use to induce labor. but of course its a much smaller dose. Also walking helps because while your up walking around gravity is pulling the baby down further and further!. be patient!!! and know your baby cant stay in there forever!!!!=) it'll be soon!. Seman has prostoglandins in it which is what is used in the hospital to soften/ripen your cervix. Your cervix is normally a solid muscular structure. When your cervix starts to soften(ripen), elongate, and thin, this is effacement. Pitocin is the synthetic form of your body's natural hormone called oxytocin which is released from the brain in response to certain triggers, such as nipple stimulation. Pitocin is used to initiate contractions in the uterus to induce labor. I am pregnant with my first, and I am 36 weeks + 5 days, just had an appointment this moring, and I am 2cm dilated, and 50% effaced and my midwife told me that I probably wouldn't make it to my next appointment or my due date. I am going to physically prepare for an early delivery, but am mentally shooting for my due date. Babies come when babies want to come. You can help yourself by staying active unless your doctor says otherwise, and of course having sex with your honey. ( Full Answer )
I don't think we have yet been able to "predict" exact birth dates yet. You would be able to predict better than any stranger. I would probably just stay close to the hospital and/or a vehicle with a driver and have an in house baby sitter for those other 3 kids of yours....because it is going to be… pretty soon. Full gestation is 40 weeks, for all pregnancies and are deemed "full Term at 37 weeks, with Dr's being comfortable with inducing labor up to 10 days prior to EDD (Estimated Delivery Date). If you are extremely uncomfortable, I would talk to them about inducing labor. I had to have induction on my 2nd child to prevent the baby from being too big during birth. In comparison, everything went smoothly and I was more comfortable before, during and after the birth. I was also able to tie up final projects and be fully prepared. ( Full Answer )
nipple stimulation, walking, sucking your thumb (it hits a pressure point at the roof of your mouth... all of these stimulate contractions.. Congratulations!!!
You sure can. I'm 37 weeks, my baby hasn't dropped a bit either. But my doc did tell me I am 1 cm dialated and 50% effaced. She thinks I will have a long labor. It is my first.
It is possible, but some mommas walk around 2 or 3 cm dilated for a couple weeks. It also depends how effaced you are. Just make sure to call your doctor and go to the hospital (L&D) if you have regular contractions - for some women they simply feel like menstrual cramps at first!
Im 38 weeks pregnant your babys head is 1 third engaged and im 1cm dilated and the cervix is very soft when will labor begin?

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 arran…gements you need for childcare for the older one. Then, enjoy the last few hours of pregnancy! You probably have less than three days!

Sorry, it is impossible to determine when the spontaneous onset of labor will occur. The norm is the span of time between 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the given due date. Every pregnancy is different, therefore one woman may go into labor with minimal evidence of cervical change while another wo…man might be very dilated and effaced for weeks before her labor begins. Pregnancy is our first lesson in patience as parents. ( Full Answer )
You are almost 39 weeks pregnant and at your last dr appt you were 1 and a half cm dilated and 50 percent effaced now you are having really bad period like cramps could you be starting labor?
yes. labor to me felt just like period cramps. i did not even recognize it was labor, got to the hospital 30 minutes before my daughter was born. no time for the epidural so i would not recommend waiting until the last minute to go to the hospital.
Hi! First Congratulations on making it this far. For each woman the signs of labor can be different. But no matter what stage in your pregnancy, there are some common signs to look for that can signal labor has started or is impending. However, none of these can say just when you will go into labor!… Bloody show/ Loss of mucus plug Water breaking Contractions that are stronger, last longer, and rhythmic Sometimes loose stools or diarrhea Small amount of weight loss (some women will lose 3-5 pounds of water weight) Over all flu like symptoms The 'nesting' instinct: sudden urge to clean with a burst of energy.. Baby engaging in the birth canal/increased pressure As I mentioned before, it's different for every woman. Some have all of these symptoms and some don't have any at all. If you are concerned about going into labor or that you might be in labor call your local hospital and speak with Labor and Delivery or contact your OB/GYN, or midwife. They are the best judge on what you might be feeling and experiencing! Good luck! ( Full Answer )
I am 41 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child and have been 3cm dilated for 2 months how can i get this baby out?
I guess sex is out since you're dilated but I read somewhere that swallowing semen works as well. Don't be in too much of a rush, let nature take its course. Don't take hot sit baths until you're in active labor since that actually slows things down, but take lots of walks, squat, sit on an exercise… ball and roll your hips, keep upright as much as possible as that keeps pressure on the cervix and may help things along. Our midwife said that Cod Liver Oil can bring on labor but I don't know if I believe this one or not. That's all we know of. ( Full Answer )
A pregnancy is 40 weeks and no one knows when they will go into labor. It can happen fast or slow.
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 wil…l 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. ( Full Answer )
All I can say is that I am 40 weeks 100% effaced and 2 cm dilated and I have not gone into labor. I am still waiting....
You are 33 weeks pregnant and 75 percent effaced ad 1 cm dilated very soft cervix how long approx will labor start?
your dilation can take as long as 2weeks or 2days depends on how active you are.
I've tried it all... my #1 recommendation is walking. Lots of walking! Castor oil only messes you up, sex can soften the cervix, but walking helps everything right along :)
You don't have to be effaced or dilated to go into labor. But this could mean u will be waiting for the bundle of joy little longer! Good luck!
