Am I in labor or will I start to be soon? Last Thursday I was not effaced at all and now 60%....is this good? Is there something I should do to help it progress?? Thanks for the info :)

I'm sorry I don't really know for sure, but I would think labor can't be too far off. Maybe it will everything go mush faster once serious labor begins.How far along are you? Best of luck to you!

Sorry. Maybe it will make everything go MUCH faster once labor gets really going.

it means that your cervix is thinning, but not opening. it's a good sign that your body is getting ready to have a baby and nothing to worry about. some people say that an effaced cervix opens more easily. all you can really do is wait it out. good luck!

My understanding is that for a first pregnancy one has to "thin" before dilation occurs. But on subsequent pregnancies it doesn't have as much significance since they can both happen simultaneously. Let's just say it's a step in the right direction but could be awhile yet.
