3 Cm

MK - September 22

I'm 3cm dilated and 2 days overdue. I haven't had any contractions. Does being 3cm already mean I'll have an easier or shorter labour??

I don't suppose you'll necessarily have a shorter or easier labor, but at least you have a head start. Some women go into labor and when they get to the hospital are only 1 cm, so 3cm is much better if you think of it that way. Have you tried all the natural ways to induce labor? Yesterday my dr. told me s_x and nipple stimulation are the best to induce. She was also telling me about having my membranes stripped - have you had that done? I still have til Oct. 20, and every time I go to the dr., I pray that I've dilated or something...it would just make me feel like I'm getting closer. Good luck, and I wish you a short and painless labor, whenever it happens! :)

When I had my first son I went in to be induced on my due date. I was almost five cm dialated. My labor was about 8 hrs and two of pushing. I think some people progress faster than others you may do the first few cm fast but the last seven may come slow. As for J I had my membranes stripped for my first child and it did nothing for me they still had to induce.
