I am 37 weeks almost 38. I am dilating 1 cm. I have cramps all day off and on. I go to the doctor tommorrow but for the past weeks I have been cramping I guess my body is getting prepared but I think that I am dilating to early for 37 weeks. Anybody been through this or going through this now? If so are you dilating a cm each week? Its amazing when the doctor was checking me to see if I had dilated she was touching the baby top of the head a little but she had to go way up there. Did that happen to you as well? Thanks for your answers.

I've been 50% effaced for 9 weeks and dilated to 1 for a week and I'm only 34 weeks. Also, my cervix is funneling and has been for about a month.

I am 38.4 weeks and 80% effaced 1 cm dialated I have been dialated 1 cm for three weeks now.The baby has dropped even more within the past 4days soooo much pressure. My doctor has brought up inducing me the week of Thanksgiving so I don't see an end in sight soon. Oh my doctor also touched the top of babys head, pretty crazy huh?

With my first baby, I started dilated at 36 weeks and went to full 40 weeks. Now with my 2nd baby, I am 1 cm dilated at 36 weeks.

Hey Theresa! I am also 37 1/2 weeks (according to my ultrasound,but my doctors keep saying I am 38 1/2) so who knows! And I am 1 cm. dialated! How weird! I was 1 cm. and 90% effaced last week at my appiontment and had another appoinment today, but I am the same as last week. I figured not much had changed because I haven't felt much of anything just some cramping at night. I went for a walk after I got home from the doctors office and I think I might go for another one in a minute.Anything that might help speed things up! I am really hoping to deliver before Thanksgiving (I am due the day before) because I so do not want to be in the hospital for Thanksgiving! Well good luck and keep in touch!!

Theresa what day did you conceive?


Jen - November 9

Theresa- this is my EXACT same situation! I went to the doctor this morning because the cramps were so bad I could hardly walk- I thought for sure something must be happening, but nothing- the exact same as last week. My cervix is still thick but it is soft. Oh, and the doctor also touched my baby's head...it seems so unfair! What a tease that he is right there- I just want to hold him in my arms so bad!!!!!!

I had my 37ish wk appointment yesterday. (i am 37w 3d today) I was 3.5cm dilated and 90% effaced he told me "you'd be lucky to go another 10 days" wooohooooo okay there i go again getting my hopes up! haha


Keely - November 9

Anyone that is 37.5 weeks, when did you conceive? Between Feb.20-26 sound right?


Theresa - November 10

Im sorry I will be 37 weeks next week. I don't know what I am thinking. I guess I am speeding up the process. I went to the doctor today and they say that I am still 1 cm. Keely I know im not 37 weeks not quite yet but I conceive on a Sunday on March 6th or 13th but I think it was on the 6th. Keely your conceive date sound right I think between 21-23 of Feb I think because I know my date I conceive because it was unforgetable. LOL


Lynn - November 10

Keely, you would have conceived the week of march 6. Most of us would have been having our periods feb 20-22 time frame.


Theresa - November 10

Keely when is your due date? November 25th-27th? Lynn if she conceive the week of March 6th I will think that she will be due the first week of December like me but if she conceive on or between Feb 20-26th I will think she is due the week I just mention. Thats what I think but we will see when she responds back.

I am in the same situation. My due date is Nov. 29th. At appt. on Friday the 11th, Doc. said I was 80% effaced 1cm dilated. After appointment I had "Bloody show" and today experienced some cramping. I would like to make it past Thanksgiving.

joanna - November 15

Theresa, I am 37 weeks and last week, at my 36th week appointment, I had dialated 1 cm. My doctor could feel the baby's head also. I'm hoping that when I go for an appointment today, that I will have dialated more!


Ca__sie - November 15

I am 36.4 weeks along. Am 70% effaced and 2 cm dilated. I'm not due until Dec. 10, but doc doesn't think I will make it that long. Woo-hoo!
