37 Weeks 2 Cm Dilated 50 Effaced
37 weeks pregnant and 2 CM dilated and 50% effaced. Lot of pelvic pressure and back pain. 3rd pregnancy and have went 2-3 weeks early. Am I in labor?
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!:
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
Have a conversation: Patients and doctors need to have a conversation about goals of what is to be accomplished.

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
