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

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

 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

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

Dilation v infection: Some vaginal discharge is normal in pregnancy due to hormonal changes. As you get closer to delivery a mucous discharge comes too called your mucous plus. Infections such as yeast, bacterial vaginosis and stds are also possibilities. Next step is an exam with your doctor. ...Read more

I'm 37 weeks today and i'm dilated 2-3 cm. Should my doctor induce me already?

I'm 37 weeks today and i'm dilated 2-3 cm. Should my doctor induce me already?

Actually not needed: For someone who is multi-gravida ("mommy of 3"), you can go from 2-3 cm to fully dilated in a matter of hours, so i would just be patient. As long as the baby is safe and good heart tones and the stress test is normal, just sit back and let nature take its course at 37 weeks..... ...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

Talk to your OB: There are many stories that are out there concerning how to induce labor, but your best bet is to talk to your OB about what he/she considers safe. Some of the treatments may not be safe and may cause fetal distress and should only be done with continuous fetal monitoring. ...Read more

37 weeks preg. 1-2cm dilated 2 weeks ago. Self checked, felt oval with rigid brim and interior of oval was like a crater not a hole. Is this cervix?

Possibly: It could be, however, it can be hard to accurately gauge the dilation of the cervix even for doctors. Doctors in training often need to do cervical checks a few dozen times with feedback from experienced mentors before they feel comfortable with the accuracy of their measurements. Let your doc know if you're doing self checks and they can give you more guidance on safety and accuracy. ...Read more
