I am 37 weeks pregnant and I saw my doctor today and I am 1cm dialated and my cervix is soft. Does that mean i could be close to giving birth?

You could be close to birth whether you are dilated or not. Or you can be dilated and still be quite a ways from going into real labor. I was 4 cm dilated and it was close to a week before I had my baby. So you never know...Best wishes!

Not necessarily. I have had children before so my cervix is always rounghly 1cm dilated. It could mean this will be the start but technically you still have three weeks to go. We don;t get checked as routine here and generally it is only if we have preoblems or are in labour that we even have an idea on whether we are dilated or not and how far. Doctors won;t risk doing internals unless there is a good reason due to the higher chance of infection.
