Can your cervix completely efface in one week?

Can your cervix completely efface in one week?

Oh yes!: In fact, I've seen a cervix go from about 20% to 100% effaced in less than 30 minutes! They have minds of their own. Much depends on how the baby's head is presenting to it. Good luck!

Does it take longer to effaced or dilate if my cervix is tilted?

Does it take longer to effaced or dilate if my cervix is tilted?

Nope: Tilted uterus is normal. 30 percent tip backward, 70 percent tip forward. No effect of effacing or dilating. If tipped back, you might have more back pain.

Having contractions every 3 minutes lasting 80 seconds long doctors don't wanna check my cervix for fear of infection how do I know if I'm dilatin or not last time I was check I was 2 1/2 CM and 70% efface?

Having contractions every 3 minutes lasting 80 seconds long doctors don't wanna check my cervix for fear of infection how do I know if I'm dilatin or not last time I was check I was 2 1/2 CM and 70% efface?

Where are you?: If you are not in a delivery suite you should be, and the decision of whether and how frequently to check for cervical dilation and effacement should be left to your ob/gyn doctors. Since this was sent 24 hrs ago, suspect you have already delivered.

If I was dilated 3 CM and my cervix was 75 % effaced, and have previously had silent labor, when do I know when to go in?

If I was dilated 3 CM and my cervix was 75 % effaced, and have previously had silent labor, when do I know when to go in?

Labor: Most women will still notice some period heaviness or mild cramps when labor starts. If you do feel something that's 5 min apart and lasts 1 hour, go in to hospital. If you don't feel baby move, go in. If water breaks or bleeding occurs, go in. If pressure in pelvis increases, go in. If any questions, call your doctor.

I will be 39 weeks tomorrow. 2cm dialated 50 percent effaced. Had cervix sweep done at appt today. How long should it be before I can expect labor?

I will be 39 weeks tomorrow. 2cm dialated 50 percent effaced. Had cervix sweep done at appt today. How long should it be before I can expect labor?

Who knows?: Labor initiation will depend upon your previous number of deliveries, and when Mother Nature decides to start the process. An older OB MD when I trained in OB GYN was most accurate in his old adage, that "If the apple is ripe, it will fall off the tree". We only "pluck apples" (induce labor) when you are post dates or there is a known medical problem with you or the baby.

30wks2days pregnant1cm dilated cervix fully effaced no measurable length strict hospital br last 4wks given mag for 12hrs 4 days ago baby coming soon?

Ask your doctor: I'm sorry your doctor has not answered this question for you. The truth is I do not have enough information to give you a prediction. Based on the above you will probably deliver before 36 weeks, but impossible to say when.

Baby hasn't dropped yet I'm 37.5 weeks low cervix 3 CM dilated 70% efface. Will a C-section b in my future I'm going to b induce at 38.3 weeks?

Baby hasn't dropped yet I'm 37.5 weeks low cervix 3 CM dilated 70% efface. Will a C-section b in my future I'm going to b induce at 38.3 weeks?

Maybe: Progressive labor (induced or otherwise) is the "gold standare test" to see vaginal or cesarean delivery is "money".

Is it a mistake to be induced at 38 weeks sharp? Husband can't be present if we wait. 2nd pregnancy. Cervix dialated but not effaced. Dr. Says "ok".

Not recommended: In the recent past, we were seeing increased admissions to the nicu because of 'social' inductions. The american college of obstetricians and gynecologists do not recommend inductions at less than 39 weeks unless there is a medical issue like high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. Although you might have a high chance of successful induction, there is a slight increased chance of baby complications.

Can baby kicks on the cervix dilate or efface it? My baby is breech and I feel like she's slaughtering me down there. 22w6d pregnant

Can baby kicks on the cervix dilate or efface it? My baby is breech and I feel like she's slaughtering me down there. 22w6d pregnant

No trap door: Your designer considered many contingencies in how to carry on the lineage. Jumping jacks and judo should be tolerable without difficulty. Should ask your ob, who might review your u/s just to be sure placenta also not low/previa, which might pose a theoretical concern. Happy baby. Sorry for the pain!

30wks+2days pregnant cervix-100% effaced 1 CM dilated "unmeasurable in length" strict hospital br put on mag sulf for 12 hrs likelihood of labor soon?

EMERGENCY: Only if you can be on strict bed rest with the bed tilted at least 30 degrees or more upside down this may make the baby head back off against the cervix then you can stay pregnant for few more weeks pressure to the cervix by the presenting parts will cause contractions if you break water, the game is over you can't take mag for too many weeks good luck.

Is emergent mcdonald 3 stitches as successful as elective If cervix is not dilated or effaced at all, just 21mm funnel and CL 23mm. No bulging membranes?

Is emergent mcdonald 3 stitches as successful as elective If cervix is not dilated or effaced at all, just 21mm funnel and CL 23mm. No bulging membranes?

No: What's different about the situation you describe is that there has been cervical shortening, which, in and of itself, increases your risk for preterm delivery. Your cervix is still pretty long, though, at 23mm. Likely the stitch will be successful at helping to prevent preterm birth. It's good, as well, that no bulging membranes. Good luck and I hope that your pregnancy goes to term!

What's the normal/average size of the cervix @ 20 weeks? Can braxton hicks contractions dilate, shorten, or efface it?

Cervix: At 20 weeks is a regular size cervix that is unaffected by braxton hicks contractions. They are just practice contractions and nothing to be afraid of. They are normal!

I'm 41 weeks today and doctor told that they will induce on 31st. Till now im not effaced or dilated and cervix has not opened what is induction proces?

I'm 41 weeks today and doctor told that they will induce on 31st. Till now im not effaced or dilated and cervix has not opened what is induction proces?

Options to induce: Several options exist for inducing labor. If your cervix is not favorable (read about bishop score), a prostaglandin medication may be used initially in the vagina (cervidil, cytotec). Next Pitocin (oxytocin) can be started to help with contractions. Sometimes Cytotec is continued to help with contractions. If the mom and baby are doing fine, this may be extended more than one day.

39 weeks pregnant At 38 week I was 3 cm dialated and 50% effaced I am getting a cervix sweep tomorrow morning. What's the estimated time for labor?

39 weeks pregnant At 38 week I was 3 cm dialated and 50% effaced I am getting a cervix sweep tomorrow morning. What's the estimated time for labor?

Roughly about 3 days: Some estimates state that after stripping of membranes (a.k.a. "getting cervix sweep"), about 50-60% of patients go into labor within 72 hours. I'm finding that in my own practice that percentage is really more like 40-50%. Good luck!

30wks+4dayspregnant on strict hospital br unmeasurable cervix dilated 1cm fully effaced with funneling may be sent home @32 weeks bad idea to send home?

Not necessarily: New data has shown us that women in your situation do not need to be hospitalized long term. In fact, hospitalization can cause other problems (like blood clots or hospital acquired infections). If you're doctor sends you home, it's likely that he/she knows you'll do okay. If your water breaks or you start to have contractions, of course you'll head straight back. Good luck!
