 37 weeks 1 day, half cm dilated and 100% effaced...is it possible to start labor soon even tho i am not dilated?

Sure.: Labor can start at any time and it is hard to say when exactly. There are no 100% sure signs to know. Isn't pregnancy exciting? It's almost over, no matter what. ...Read more

Pelvis softens: As your body prepares to deliver your baby your pelvic bones prepare to open some. Women begin to waddle, others have difficulties such as you are having. It is getting close. ...Read more

So I'm 37 weeks &1 CM dilated and halfway effaced is what doctor said last appointment. For the last two days my vagina has felt swollen& sensitive?

We expect this!: Hi Deborah, As the baby moves down in the pelvis which is what is happening slowly and gradually at this point in your pregnancy, the vaginal tissue is filling with fluid. This is due to the pressure the baby's head is placing on the veins of the pelvis. This is normal and will continue until delivery. It does not feel good but is expected. ...Read more

37 weeks pregnant just got diarrhea, already 2 1/2 CM dilated as of last week, is labor coming soon? If so how soon after diarrhea does labor start?

Unpredictable: There is no way to predict exactly how long it will be until labor, although all of these signs you mention suggest it may not be long. Call your doctor if you are contracting every 5 minutes, you think that you have started leaking amniotic fluid, or if you have vaginal bleeding. Also call if you have decreased fetal movement. Good luck! ...Read more

I am 37 weeks and 6 days pregnant and I am 1 CM dilated and 70% effaced. I am having a lot of pelvic and abdominal pain. Am i having contractions?

I am 37 weeks and 6 days pregnant and I am 1 CM dilated and 70% effaced. I am having a lot of pelvic and abdominal pain. Am i having contractions?

You need evaluation!: Contractions are intermittent pain and you feel fine in between. If you are having constant, significant pelvic and/or abdominal pain, you need immediate evaluation. Not tomorrow, not in 3 hours - now. You could be having bleeding under the placenta (abruption), an infection or other problems. Constant pain is not contractions, so if this pain is bad and constant, get to the l&d or er now. ...Read more

If I am past 37 weeks, 90% effaced and 4 CM dilated can I request pitocin?

If I am past 37 weeks, 90% effaced and 4 CM dilated can I request pitocin?

Have a conversation: Patients and doctors need to have a conversation about goals of what is to be accomplished. Even though 37 weeks is considered full term, there needs to be an indication for initiating labour. At 4cm without contractions, that is still not labour. Pitocin is a drug with potential side effects. The risks and benefits need to always be weighed. ...Read more

See your doctor: You are losing yourmucous plug as you are dilating. Nothing to worry about unless you are concerned that you have ruptured your membranes. See you doctor to get evaluated. ...Read more

I'm 37 weeks today and i'm dilated 2-3 cm. Should my doctor induce me already?

I'm 37 weeks today and i'm dilated 2-3 cm. Should my doctor induce me already?

Depends!: Here are my questions: any evidence of fetal distress or low amniotic fluid volume? If not - or unless there are other reasons to induce, many doctors would sit tight and wait for labor to begin. Some babies have immature lungs at 37 weeks so waiting (or assessing lung maturity before induction) may be wise. I have seen women dilated to 5 cm for weeks before labor began! good luck. ...Read more

I'm 37 weeks and 3 CM dilated and i lost my mucus plug today how much longer tell labor starts?

I'm 37 weeks and 3 CM dilated and i lost my mucus plug today how much longer tell labor starts?

No one knows: The loss of the mucous plug means that your body is getting ready for labor, but sadly does not predict exactly when it will start. It could be tomorrow or 3 more weeks. ...Read more
