You may go into labor at any time. If your water breaks or even just leaks or trickles, be sure to contact your doctor right away, whether or not you feel labor pain.
very soon! when? labor is unpredictable.
Well if you're 40% effaced then labour has already begun!! Well if you're 40% effaced then labour has already begun!!
Castor oil is a laxative not used to induct labor. As the labor progresses and contraction becomes strong cervical dilatation will increase.
castrol oil or get membranes stripped
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!
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 woman might be very dilated and effaced for weeks before her labor begins. Pregnancy is our first lesson in patience as parents.
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....
Are your contractions regular, meaning, have they been 3 mins apart now for the last hour? If they have been I would say your in labor and to go to the hospital.
Effacement refers to a stage in labor during which the cervix becomes thin and begins the process of dilation which moves the cervix out of the way so the baby can be born. When the cervix is fully effaced and dilated to 10 centimeters, the baby begins to move down the birth canal.

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.)
Yes, they will give you a large dose of magnesium which works as a muscle relaxer to stop your labor, then they will give you a smaller continuous dose to prevent you from going back into labor. I was 30 weeks pregnant, 3cm dilated and 80% effaced and they were very successful in stopping my labor.
You can be effaced and dialated for weeks with your first child.... Thanks for putting a downer on me lol joke thanks for answer much needed
A cerclage MUST be taken out before you go into labor or it will tear your cervix to shreds & put you at risk for a hysterectomy!
if you are 3 weeks pregnant, and your effaced 90% i'd say that you need to go get that checked out? 3 weeks prego means you have ur entire 9 months left to go!! if you go into labor soon, you probably wont be delivering a fullterm healthy baby
If you are -1, you ARE in labor. Contact a doctor ASAP.
If 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 soon.
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!
Impossible to say
Inducing before 39 weeks is dangerous for your baby, who would be born a preemie. Don't do it.
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
