How soon can you go into labor being 36 wks 1 cm dilated and your cervix has begun to thin?

THIS DEPENDS BUT GENERALLY SPEAKING NATURE ALLOWS A HEALTHY BABY TO BE BORN AT THIS AGE. IF BABIES HEART BEAT IS STRONG BABY'S WELL LUNGS MEDICALLY DR AT STAGE LETS NATURE TAKE ITS' COURSE FOR DRLIVERY. YOU CAN GO INTO LABOUR FROM 2 HRS ON, DEPENDING IF YOU ARE MEDICALLY FIT, LED A HEALTHTY LIFESTYLE. NO ONE CAN TELL YOU FORCERTAIN, EXCEPT A MIDWIFE OR OBSTETRIAN WITH YOU. ALSO, HAVING OTHER CHILDREN IS SUPPOSED TO QUICKEN THINGS UP. FROM MY OWN EXPERIENCES BOTH MY LABOURS WERE VERY DIFFERENT, AS WELL AS THE BIRTHS. . . . . GOOD LUCK

IF you are 36 weeks and have never had a braxton hicks could it be possible you just don't notice them?

Yes. If you are busy you may not notice them. They don't hurt and are not very co-ordinated so you may not notice. Also if you have a very active baby you may mistake them for movements. You may begin to notice them more in the next 2 or 3 weeks as your uterus prepares for labor.

Can you get braxton hicks at 16 weeks pregnant?

I've been having braxton hicks since 20 weeks. So much that my doctor took me off work and said I would most likely deliver early. Here I am at 40 weeks and 2 days still pregnant and having regular BH constantly. They sure get annoying! It all depends on when you start feeling them, 16 weeks sounds normal. They say you can have them very early on you just don't feel them. Good luck!

I am 39 weeks pregnant and 1 cm dilated and not feeling too many braxton hicks but my dr says that's normal in younger woman my question is WHEN wILl LABOR COME?

Don't worry about it. There simply aren't any formulas. I never had any Braxton Hicks contractions that I was aware of, and was 7 cm dilated when I went to see my doctor, who thought I'd deliver that afternoon.

In reality, I didn't go into labor for another week--which was one week past my due date. Soon your baby will let you know, "It's time!" If necessary, your doctor will have a point at which he or she will make the decision to induce labor, so there's no danger. Best of luck to you.
