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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there anyway to prevent early enfacement before labor starts? I was almost all the way effaced before i started labor . Almost delivered outside .

Anxious 4 labor: Since we do not know completely what triggers natural labor to begin, it is difficult to give advice on how to quicken its appearance. Your cervix is very favorable for natural labor to begin soon but you can be dilated, as you are, for a number of weeks. Staying physically active is your best bet. Sexual activity makes the uterus contract but it doesn't seem too successful in starting labor. ...Read more
35.1 weeks preg, 3rd baby.3cm/80% effaced. Constant cramps/contracrions. How quick till active labor does it usually take? Does that start at 4cm?
Question not clear: If effaced 80% with constant cramps i hope you are in a hospital under treatment. At 35.1wks, your chance of having a baby in the ICU on oxygen or a ventilator is >50%. Labor can be stopped to give your baby enough extra time to be ready for delivery. If you are not at a hospital, call now or go to the hospital. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
