I was just wondering if any of you have already had your cervix checked and dilated? I had my 36 wk checkup on Monday, Dec. 12th and I am already dilated 2 cm. The doctor told me she even felt the tip of his head! Wow! They told me if I dilate to 4 cm they would keep me at the hospital. Any of you had the same experience so far?

I'm 36 wks and when I went to the Dr. Tuesday I was between 1 and 2 cm.

I was dilated to a fingertip-1 @ 34 weeks and I stayed at that until 38 1/2 weeks (4 days ago) I was dilated to 2. Also, I was 50% effaced at 25 weeks and stayed at that until this past check up where he said I'm almost totally effaced. So, it's exciting to hear that you are dilated/effacing but then it could take, what seems like forever, to progress any further. Good luck! My dr. stripped my membranes at 38 1/2 weeks. Still waiting for something to happen!

I had my 37 wk appt and I am dilated at 2.5cm at 70% effaced.. last time I was 30% effaced. The doctor doesn't think I'll make it to my due date, Jan 10th. Keeping my fingers crossed that the baby will be here before the end of the year! My next appt is next Tuesday.

I was effaced to 70% at 33 wks, by 34 wks had dialated to 1. 36 wks to 2. And now stuck but am effaced to 85%. Dr. said am making good progress and she thinks baby will be here soon, within the week..:) *smile* I have been having preterm labor since 30wks. Jaci-My Dr is going to strip my membranes next wk (38wks) what exactly is that? I mean, what are your membranes...? The part that effaces, or.... Im lost.

Im 36 weeks, and had my checkup yesterday, the doc didnt do any internal exam, and she wants me to come back in 2 weeks.. whats the go with that..? like i could be dialated abit, and noones telling me anything.. Im so p__sed, like arent you supposed to have checkups once a week from 36 weeks on. If so, then its not right that i have to wait abother 2 weeks to find anything out.. this whole thing is dragging on and i hate it.

Dani - when the dr. stripped my membranes, he did it while he did my internal exam. He checked how dilated & effaced I was and then explained to me that he was going to strip my membranes and the nurse said it may hurt a little. I was expecting pain around my cervix, but it didn't hurt. It was a little uncomfy with his hand so high up inside me, but it didn't hurt. What they do is stick their finger up into your cervix until they get to your bag of water, then they separate your bag from your cervix by sweeping their finger around. I don't know if I'm explaining it clear. Sorry. Anyway, when they do that...it releases prostaglandins (a natural hormone that will help dilate/efface your cervix) and it could 'cause you to go into labor right away, later, or NEVER like me! :) I hope that helped you understand.
