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

Could i go into labor soon im 37 weeks pregnant and im 2 CM dilated, 90% effaced and lost my mucus plug. Today i just been very emotional and aggravated with bad cramps could i be going into labor soon.

The : The stage of labor you are describing is called early labor, and it occurs when the cervix begins to dilate, the mucous plug is commonly lost in this stage. This stage is unpredictable. It can lasts from hours to days. Based on this post you are probably in active labor, or have already given birth to your baby. All the best to you and your bundle of joy! ...Read more

 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?

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

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

I'm 37 weeks pregnant and i'm 3 CM dialated and 70% effaced does this mean i'm gonna be having my baby soon or could it still be weeks to come ?

I'm 37 weeks pregnant and i'm 3 CM dialated and 70% effaced  does this mean i'm gonna be having my baby soon or could it still be weeks to come ?

Could be anytime!: By that, i mean that you could go into labor tonight - or you might still be pregnant a month from now! certainly, the fact that your cervix is 3 cm dilated and 70% effaced (thinned) is evidence that your body is getting ready. I had one woman who was 5 cm dilated for several weeks! everybody thought that baby was just going to fall out! so do the best you can to be patient (!); time will pass. ...Read more
