Is it psbl to have labour pains n amniotic fluid leakage n still cervix is not dilated..38 weeks pregnant?

Is it psbl to have labour pains n amniotic fluid leakage n still cervix is not dilated..38 weeks pregnant?

Yes: "False Labor" pains not strong enough to cause cervical dilation can go on for weeks before real labor begins. That doesn't mean it doesn't hurt! However, if you are leaking amniotic fluid, you should be delivered right away. Your doctor can do an exam to see if you are really leaking amniotic fluid or if it is something else like urine or a heavy vaginal discharge. Best wishes! ...Read more

I'm 38 weeks pregnant 5 CM dilated and mushy cervix but no contractions. Why? How can I bring them on ? Is there any possible ways?

Being Pregnant: Stop. Your baby needs more time. These last weeks are the most important for lung development. Your contractions will happen when the baby is ready. It is not ready yet! ...Read more

Im 38 weeks pregnant and at my last appointment my doctor inform me that my cervix was still closed. That I haven't dilated at all. Is this normal?

Im 38 weeks pregnant and at my last appointment my doctor inform me that my cervix was still closed. That I haven't dilated at all. Is this normal?

Yes, its normal: During your first pregnancy (and sometimes even during a subsequent pregnancy) your cervix may not begin to dilate until your membranes rupture and you start having contractions. This doesn't mean its not getting ready for the big day. Even though it doesn't dilate, it may become softer and thinner. ...Read more

I am 38 weeks pregnant and have gestational diabetes, my dr examined my cervix this morning and said that I'm 1cm dilated, and that she can feel the baby right there on my cervix. Would I come into labor any day now? Thanks!

Full term: At 38 weeks you are considered full term and at that point you could technically be ready to go into labor at any point. Since your OB can feel that you are 1cm dilated, this is not terribly unusual at your stage. Although the baby might be sitting right on your cervix, he/she may still still there for another 2+ weeks, OR they may come out any day now. it's certainly the Great Waiting Game! ...Read more
