By the time you have read this I bet you have delivered your baby, you probably had it within 2 hours of writing the question. --------------- I am 40 weeks, 5 cm dilated and 75% effaced - have been since last Friday (it's now Monday). I say that your baby will come when he/she is good and ready, and not a moment earlier. I know it can be frustrating, but your child knows when he is supposed to great the world. If your doctor thinks that anything is wrong, they will likely induce you between 41-42 weeks. I recomend you try to just have your water broken first, and if that doesn't get things moving go on to pitocin or some such Intravenous (IV) inducer. Good luck my dear!
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!
