 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

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

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

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 (oxytocin) is a drug with potential side effects. The risks and benefits need to always be weighed. ...Read more

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?

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

37 weeks preg, not dilated one bit. Can stress cause my water to break?

Maybe: You definitely can break your water without being dilated. That happens all the time. Whether stress or any other event can precipitate it is unclear. But if you think you are leaking see your doctor today. If you are ruptured, it is time to get delivered. ...Read more
