Effacement

Hey, I was just curious how effaced everyone is. At my 38 week appointment I was 75%, station -2, and 1 to 2cm dilated. How effaced were you all when you went into labor? I am now having cramps and I don't know what to expect.

When I went into labor I was only 20% effaced, 4cm dilated, and the baby was still floating...She didn't drop until 30 minutes before she was born.

WOW! Ok, so it's official...there is no set standard of % effaced...cm dilated...or station that you're at! When did you know in fact, that you had to go to the hospital Toya? I have read a lot of your posts and congrats on the birth of your little girl! I'm ready and willing to do all natural if everything goes accordingly ya' know? But, who knows what could happen. I've been having cramps all day in my lower back and some sharp pains in my v____a area. But, the pain in my lower back doesn't really go away abruptly so it's hard for me to even time them. Anyway: How did you know when you should head to the hospital? Thanks girl!

I knew it was time to go to the hospital when I drank a gla__s of water and threw it right back up...I was having back contractions 1 week before I actually went into labor and like you it was hard to time them, because the back pain actually kinda lingered. My contractions never got worse...they stayed the same in intensity until I was about 6 cm dilated and then after that my water broke when I was in the hospital bed.
