Dialation Enfacement And Braxton Hicks

Kristina - August 28

Since I am 1 cm dialated and 50% effaced for the past two weeks, my stomach has been getting hard, now it could be braxton hicks, but if I am dialting and effacing could it be real contractions, i also have some mild cramping. I have been very tired lately. Family has even noticed I am dropping. Thanks

All normal. You will know when you go into real labor because the contractions will get stronger and longer instead of going away when you move or drink water. If they are 5 minutes apart and lasting 60 seconds for over an hour, it's time to head to the hospital. Good luck!

I am in the same boat with you... As of two weeks ago, I was 1 cm dilated. Not sure if I have progressed any further yet. I have had the same tightening and cramping. But they dont get stronger or last long. I have also been getting shooting pains down my inner thighs... I hope that is normal. I find myself constantly asking "hmm i wonder what that was". I hope that when it happens I will know it for sure.
