what is the difference between a softened cervix, a thinning cervix, and effaced. Are they all terms for pretty much the same thing or are they totally different. At 30weeks I was in the hospital with kidney problems and they checked me to be safe. He said then that my cervix was softened. At my next appointment they are going to start checking for dilation. I know everyone is different but do you think by now I would have progressed to something if I was already softened then? I'll be 37 weeks for my next appt.
