I went to my dr yesterday and found out I am dialated to a 3 and 50% efaced. (sp?) I am 36 w 1d and I am worried that may be too much to soon. Anyone have any experience with this?

Wow. I am sure you are fine. Did your doctor seem concerned? If not, then it's probably fine. Hope I have that much progress that soon! I'll be 36 wks on Tuesday...and I have an appointment that day that I will find out where I am. Is this your first?

My Dr didn't seem concerned but said I need to relax. This is my second but with my first I never dialated until after my water broke. Now this morning it looks like bits of my mucus plug are coming out.

you are just fine. you can walk around dilated that much for a month or more. I have been 1cm, 50% for over 3 weeks now. i am 38w3d today. so i started dilating at 35w. if the doc isn't worried, you shouldn't be either, it is normal to start dilating early, but doesn't necessarily mean delivery is right around the corner or anything. i've had friends dilated to a 4cm and stayed like that for over a month- and delivered late! so good luck

I had my ds at 36 weeks, and he was perfectly healthy and weighed 6lbs 1 oz. No need to worry, it's normal to deliver between 36-41 weeks.

I'd be happy:) You are fine at this stage, I had a sister dilated to three for a whole week, so it can still be awhile. I say enjoy it, I am jealous :)
