39 Weeks 6 Cm Dilated 70 Effaced When Do I Go In Labor

After measuring 6 cm yesterday and getting my mebranes stripped, midwife said I should go in labor within 24 hrs. I had some 30 min contractions yesterday but nothing much today. Is it common to be so dilated and not in labor? How much longer?

Wow, lucky lady. 6cm and no labor pains yet. I have an OB and if I were in your position I would be asking for some pitocin and an epidural! I can't imagine it would be that much longer for you. Hopefull you will have your little one with in the next 48 hours or so.

Every pregnancy is different! If you get to a point where your membranes have ruptured and you aren't contracting, they will more than likely give you pitocin to move things along. Every woman is different, and some women just don't start contracting spontaneously. Remember to contact your midwife or doctor if you start bleeding or think you ruptured. If either of those happen, it's time to get things moving along! Good luck!
