Dilation And Cramps Question

3 Replies
r - October 19

Hi! I'm 37 weeks and on Friday I was told that I am 1cm dilated, and my cervix "is thinnning" (she didn't gve me a percent). I've been having menstrural-like cramps for about a week now. But so far nothing has happened, no contractions or anything. I was wondering if anyone else has been at 1cm, and for how long? I know I can be at 1cm for weeks, but do the cramps mean that I'm dilating further? I'm getting anxious to meet my baby boy! :)

At 36-37 weeks my doctor examined me and determined I was 1 cm dialated and 50% effaced (thinning). I am now 38 and 1/2 weeks and I am still 1 cm dilated and about 65% effaced. I also had camps, tons of them at 37 weeks. Now at almost 39 I have cramps and irregular contractions. I am walking daily, whic makes me cramp like crazy. The doctor said that my cervix is nice and soft which is a good sign. however he has no idea when my little boy is coming ... he did say that as a first time mom I can go past my due date easily, despite the effacing and dilation.

I went to the doc at 37 weeks and was 1cm dial and 50% thinned I just went to the doc today at 39 weeks and he told me that I am 2cm dial and 85% thinned I am having really bad cramping and back pains as well as irreg contractions. He said I could go at any time

i've been 50% effaced since I was at week 25. i'm now 31 weeks...but have been on bedrest. not dialated at all but funneling. so, i'm not sure how much longer it'll be for you. my friend was dialated to 1 for about a month and then 2 for almost a month before she went into labor. good luck.
