Had my 40 wk checkup yesterday. Doc says I'm 100% effaced but not dilated at all. When can I expect labor?

Had my 40 wk checkup yesterday. Doc says I'm 100% effaced but not dilated at all. When can I expect labor?

Any day but...: It could be today but could be another week or 2.First babies seem more likely to come a bit after the due date than before. Your baby will trigger the process of labor when it's ready. Do your best to avoid formally inducing labor until at least 41 weeks but having sex, breast stimulation and acupuncture may help get things going. At 41 weeks your doctor or midwife could try membrane stripping. ...Read more

30wks+2days pregnant cervix-100% effaced 1 CM dilated "unmeasurable in length" strict hospital br put on mag sulf for 12 hrs likelihood of labor soon?

EMERGENCY: Only if you can be on strict bed rest with the bed tilted at least 30 degrees or more upside down this may make the baby head back off against the cervix then you can stay pregnant for few more weeks pressure to the cervix by the presenting parts will cause contractions
if you break water, the game is over

What does dilated to a 2 50% effaced and station -3 mean?

What does dilated to a 2 50% effaced and station -3 mean?

A long ways to go...: Dilated to 2cm: The bottom of the uterus (The cervix) is open about 3/4 of an inch. Fully dilated is 10cm. Effacement: The cervix is 4-5cm long. 50% effaced means that the cervix has thinned to 2 - 2.5cm. Station: When your Ob checks your cervix, he/she can feel a landmark called the Ischial Spine. When the fetal head is at this point it is at zero station. -3 Station means 3cm above. ...Read more

About how long can u stay 50% effaced and dilated to 2 1/2? Is likely to stay that way a week?

Can not guess: It is not possible to guess when someone will labor exactly. If you are 2.5 cm dilated and 50% effaced all we can say is "soon." We can not say if soon means today, tomorrow or weeks from now. I would keep a bag packed and ready to go though. Best of luck. ...Read more

I went to the dr today and I was dilated to 3 and 70% effaced and now I'm having sharp back pains bad?

Dilation & back pain: Your body is getting ready for labor. You're almost ready. If your water breaks go straight to your doctor's office or hospital. Otherwise wait for regular contractions. Good luck! ...Read more

Nurses said I'm 80% effaced "very soft" but still only 2-3cm dilated (which I've been for a few weeks now. Why am I not dilating? What can I do to dilate?

Go into labor: Dilation is what happens when labor starts. You may dilate some before labor, but further dilation may not occur until labor starts. Usually nature takes care of that. ...Read more

Is there anything I can take or do to help put me into labor in at a dilated to a three but not effaced

Time: Much as we hate to admit it sometimes there is not much we can do outside of the hospital to hurry up labor. Once in the hospital the labour can be started, or hurried up by the actions of your OB doctor. Call the office and see if these methods might be appropriate for you. ...Read more

39wks/2days. Totally effaced but just became 1cm dilated. How fast can I end up getting to over 4cm? Also what are the chances my water will break now

No rules: There are no rules as to how fast you will go into labor. Being 1 cm and effaced is a good sign. If your water breaks or you start contracting regularly then it's time to head to the hospital. ...Read more

30w&4d today, got checked sat&i was 1 cm ¬ effaced, today I got checked again& im at 2 cm dilated& 50 effaced, baby is head down. How long do I have?

Hard to say: Was a Fetal Fibronectin or Cervical Length Ultrasound checked? More information is needed. Did your doctor express concern for preterm labor? If you are having regular contractions every 10 minutes, vaginal bleeding or leakage of fluid, you should immediately go to labor and delivery. ...Read more

I'm 31 weeks and dilated +3 and 70% effaced is that a good thing?

Concerning: This is worrisome for your risk of pre-term delivery. Your doctor will probably be monitoring you more closely because of this and checking for any contractions. You may even be given some steroids to help with maturing the baby's lungs. This is more worrisome if this is your first pregnancy or if you have had previous preterm babies, miscarriages, abortions, or procedures on your cervix like LEEP ...Read more

16 yr is 35.2 weeks prg dilated to 6cm 100 effaced and 2+station on baby. Back labor every 4 min went to hsp the dr on call sent her home is this nrm?

Atypical: Unless repeated exams revealed no progress. At 6 cm, it sounds like she has moved from latent phase into the active phase of stage 1 of labor, where dilation can progress more quickly, at about 1 cm per hour. Also, there is concern about a preterm infant. ...Read more

36w5d preg today. Received last p17 shot a week ago. Removed emergent cerclage 36w3d, 2-3cm dilated 60% effaced. Baby engaged. Approximately when deliver?

36w5d preg today. Received last p17 shot a week ago. Removed emergent cerclage 36w3d, 2-3cm dilated 60% effaced. Baby engaged. Approximately when deliver?

Impossible to say: Once a cerclage is removed it is normal to expect delivery very soon but it is possible that you will not go into labor until your due date. I have even had patients who had to be induced. Babies seem to come in their own time. There is just no way to know. Best wishes to you and the baby. ...Read more

Does the vagina gets 90% effaced and 3 CM dilated close to delivery?

Does the vagina gets 90% effaced and 3 CM dilated close to delivery?

A ways to go...: To deliver a baby, the cervix needs to dilate to 10cm. It can still be a few hours after 10cm before baby delivers. A women who has had several children can get from 3cm to delivery fairly fast. If it is the first baby, it could take many hours (10 hours or a lot more). If you are 3cm and not in labor, you are getting close to going into labor. Best wishes! ...Read more

I am 39 weeks pregnante with my first child. I am totally effaced but only one CM dilated. How can I start to dialate quicker?

Regular activity.: It unfortunately takes as long as it takes to go into active labor. You cannot rush these things. Regular activity as tolerated, including sexual intercourse unless prohibited by your physician (or mood), is reasonable advice. Patience is a virtue. Keep all prenatal care appointments. Good luck! ...Read more
