In brief: Baby is coming!

Labor is described at www.
Americanpregnancy.Org/labornbirth/firststage.Html with a full-term pregnancy and a normal-sized baby, 5 cm cervix means being in active labor (time to head to the hospital or be at the hospital). If the baby is premature (very small), one should be closely monitored in labor & delivery ward, because such babies can come out even before the doctor notices full dilation.
