I am 38 1/2 weeks and just came back from doctor..I am 2 cm dilated and 75% effaced. Baby has dropped and I started having braxton hicks (that I can feel ) last night. Doctor seem to think I was close but I am not sure. Last week I was 1cm dilated...week before nothing. I am due dec 2nd

Jackie - honestly, I don't know the answer to your question and I doubt the doctor does either. I would a__sume you are close. However, I was 3 cm dilated and 75% effaced for 3 weeks prior to have my baby, which was 10 days late. My doctor was shocked the baby didn't come before my due date. ~ I don't think doctors really know what causes women to go into labour in the first place... you body just does it when it is the right time for your body. ~ I wish I had a better answer for you! Good luck.

Sounds close, but could still be a while. Good luck.
