With my second baby I was never checked for dilation but my water broke at 36wks and before contractions started I was 4cm, 100% effaced. I never had contractions until several hours after my water broke. My third baby I had conractions fir weeks before I was induced, same with my first.. What you're feeling are likely Braxton hicks and not true labor contractions.

I was 1cm for weeks. I ended up being induced at 40 weeks and 2 days. Everyone is different, though. Good luck!

being 1-3 cm dilated doesn't mean shit really. I'd say you are going to be waiting until close to your due date.

Quoting Ravey Candyass:" <blockquote><b>Quoting ♥MamaToSilas♥:</b>" I think she's trying to be a smartass :?"</blockquote> It doesn't even make any sense"


Intrinsically a piece of string has length but that length is unknown hence the
: the phrase 'how long is a piece of string' means that the quantitative answer is not known and there is an implicate understanding that the answer will be difficult to find given the information available.



That is all ....

Thanks everyone. I've gone into early labor once already I've had problems with my blood pressure an been on bedrest since I was 24 weeks I don't think I will go to my due date I have 2 weeks left and I can feel more pressure an the contractions feel different then before. I have a drs apt tomorrow so I guess I will see how much progress I've made an hopefully soon I will have my baby in my arms.
