they told me at 3cm early labor begins, but still could be weeks before you dilate to 2 cm. I have been 2cm for about a week or so and still no labor, 38 weeks and really getting impatient, but everyone is diffrent hang in there

I was 1 cm dilated at 26 weeks. I am now 35 weeks and 2 cm dilated. It gets frustrating but you have to be strong. There is no way of nowing how long it will take.

I know the feeling! I went last week and they told me I was 1.5. I was so excited. I hoped when I went back this past Tuesday they would tell me I'd done more, but no such luck. I suppose it doesnt' help either I have a husband that doesn't put out much. And he wonders why I've tried the b___st pump, the nipple stimulation, and castor oil. Nothing works. I hope the fact I live in a two-story will help, cause i'm 38.5 and getting frustrated.

I was 1cm dialated with my first one for a month before they induced me. The second one I was told that I was 2cm, went back not even a week later and I was told that I was at 1cm. I have not idea how that can happen, but that's what they told me. Anyways, I was not effaced any and I ended up having her 6 days later. You never can tell with babies. They come when they are ready.

how many centimeters do you have to be dialated before you should be admitted to the labor and delivery, and how many to get an epidural?

I was at a 4 and 75% effaced when they kept me in the hospital. I think the effacement has more to do with it than the dialating.

good question kristen.I was told your labour has to start and be established before you can get an epi.Its strange though how some are at 4 and feel no pain yet.I am so scared that I will wishing for the epiu and e in pain,I'm still wondering about an elective c-section.

i am 1 cm dilated and 75% effaced, i effaced to 75% within 2 weeks, how much longer?

I dialated 1 cm on July 4th, 2010. I have been 1 cm so far. This is my 4th pregnancy. I have already had pre-term labor contractions. They gave me Brethine shot in my arm to slow contractions down bc they were coming every 1-3 mins apart. What do you think of that? They told me to take Procardia to stop contractions but i won't bc too much drugs can have affect on baby. Do you think i will be pregnant for long?

I am due on september first and have been 1cm dilated since 34 weeks, I am now dilated at a two and 50 percent effaced at almost 38 weeks. You can be dilated for over a month before actual labor! Just because you aare dilated does not mean labor is soon, trust me I have done my research and talked to about four different doctors about it, they all said the same thing. I feel for you, our due dates are just a few days apart! To top it off i'm only five feet tall and have absolutly no room left!
