at what point in the pregnancy do you usually start to dialate? like, 34 weeks? Or is this too individual to say... I am 31 weeks and change and havent had any braxton hicks yet, so I wonder....

I'm 37 weeks and not dilated or effaced at all.


tara - July 27

I'm at 38 weeks and have not had any real braxton hicks. I've had the tightening of the uterus feeling a couple of times but no cramping or discomfort with it. My cervix have started to soften but that's about it for me.

At 36 weeks I was 50% effaced and 1 cm dialated.


Jbear - July 27

I had my daughter at 36 weeks and wasn't dialated at all.

I am almost 40 weeks and found out today that I am only effaced a little bit and not dialated at all. As you could expect I am feeling really sorry for myself right now :(

Jen, I fully sympathize. I am 40 weeks, 4 days, and I am barely dilated, and not effaced:( It's driving me mental. Especially when there are some women who are 3cm by 37 weeks. Oh well. I didn't give birth to my first until I was 41 wks +. I guess it is cushy for my babies in there.

Wow, thanks everyone. I think the heat is getting to me... 95 degrees for days here... I am losing it...

I am 33 weeks and just had to go to the hospital on Monday because of the pains I was getting. They were all day long and would not stop. They hooked me up to a monitor and said I was having mild contractions but nothing to be concerned about. I am not dialated at all so they said that I am probably just having Braxton Hicks and will probably last till the end.

I'm at fingertip dilated ever since 32 weeks and now 38 weeks this Sat (7/30) and still waiting. Also, this is my first baby.

I went to my 39 week appt and wasn't dialated at all and my water broke 2 days later.


T. - July 28

I've been 3 cm dilated and 75% effaced since 36 weeks and I'm due on August 2nd. I lost my plug around 36 weeks too, but still no baby yet! We're hoping she'll decide to grace us with her presence soon!
