I am due the 27th of nov and i am 1 cm dilated..this is my fourth kids but my first without induction. i am miserable...does anyone know (from their dr or past experience) how dilation indicates when labor will begin??

You can start dilating and not goin into labor for months dilation has nothing to do with going in to labor which sucks.

Alissa is right.

Geri - I am also due Nov 27th, and am 1cm dialated. We both just have to be patient and wait. What is making you miserable?

I have a 5year old and she asks me the same thing, about when will I be fun again. I can't jump on the trampoline, ride bikes, or horse play with her so I feel guilty. I also live in Texas and this September was horrible, and being hot and sweaty makes me cranky. My poor family has had to put up with alot, but hey we are almost there. Good Luck!

I am due Nov. 27th also. I am dilated one cenimeter and experiencing lots of discharge. My first was born at 36 weeks so I am hoping for early also as long as the baby is ready. :-)
