What does dilated to a 2 50% effaced and station -3 mean?

What does dilated to a 2 50% effaced and station -3 mean?

A long ways to go...: Dilated to 2cm: The bottom of the uterus (The cervix) is open about 3/4 of an inch. Fully dilated is 10cm. Effacement: The cervix is 4-5cm long. 50% effaced means that the cervix has thinned to 2 - 2.5cm. Station: When your Ob checks your cervix, he/she can feel a landmark called the Ischial Spine. When the fetal head is at this point it is at zero station. -3 Station means 3cm above. ...Read more

Was 90% effaced now 80% still 3cm have been for 2 weeks.  Any safe ways at home to help SPEED things up? Told no sex as lost mucous plug. HELP!!

Unfortunately no.: Unfortunately, there is no way to bring on labor by yourself. Eating spicy foods, walking, sex - none of this will help and could make you miserable. Labor happens when the baby is ready to be delivered. We don't know how, but we think a signal is sent from the baby's brain that says it's ready. ...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

Why: Why do you need/want to take Castor oil? It can cause contractions. Are you trying to get done sooner? If that's the case, I recommend that you not experiment or do anything without consulting your OB provider first. ...Read more

Does the vagina gets 90% effaced and 3 CM dilated close to delivery?

Does the vagina gets 90% effaced and 3 CM dilated close to delivery?

A ways to go...: To deliver a baby, the cervix needs to dilate to 10cm. It can still be a few hours after 10cm before baby delivers. A women who has had several children can get from 3cm to delivery fairly fast. If it is the first baby, it could take many hours (10 hours or a lot more). If you are 3cm and not in labor, you are getting close to going into labor. Best wishes! ...Read more

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
