Does 50% effaced mean you will go into labor soon?

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

39 weeks completed.90 effaced and 2.5 dialated.Any prediction?Any natural ways to imduce labor

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 more

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

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

37wks&2days 80% effaced & 3-4cm dilated first baby -2 to -1 station sched. Induction @ 39 weeks what can I do to go in active labor want to go naturally?

Patience: Let mother nature do her work. Your body and your baby know when it is the right time to go into labor. There are more and more studies every day about more problems in 'early term babies' - those born from 37-39 weeks. You are not even due yet. I know you are very uncomfortable and want to meet your new baby, but the baby likes it where he or she is right now, so let them stay where they are! ...Read more
