I am 39 weeks and 3 days. My question is, I went to the doctor today and he told me that I was finger tip dilated, what does this mean? This is my first pregnancy, everyone has told me that when you first start to dilate that it does not take long before going into labor, is this also true?

I don't believe that to be true as myself and others I know were 2 cm. for 2-3 weeks.

This is not true. You can be dialated up to 2 finger tips at week 34 and on. You can also be effaced up to 70% and not feel a thing. I think you will be definitely late because one fingertip is not much at 39 weeks. Just hang in there, I wish it meant you'd be going into labour soon but no so.

It could go either way...yes woman can dialate weeks before labor...its actually 1-4 cm...but unfort. that does not mean you will be having the little one soon...a fingertip is not a good suggestion either...but you can also go from nothing to 5 in a few seconds when you are in labor...everyone is different and it totally depends on you...hang in there it cannot be much longer...and good luck

When it comes to babies, only mother nature knows the answers...all deliveries are different. A woman can easily go from being 1 cm to being fully dilated in a few days..
