Question About Dialation Had Doc App Wednesday

amya - March 1

I went to the doctors wednesday and he did an internal exam to check to see if I was dialated or not. I am 37 weeks today yet my due date is March 23rd. He said I was'nt dialated yet, but said it could be any day now! My question is, after you started dialating, how long did it take you to go into labor, or become dialated enough that they told you to come in to induce. Oh, another ques. If I am 37 weeks today, then why is my due date March 23rd, is this all based on 40weeks? If so then I really could have 5 weeks left right? B/C they do sometimes let it go till 42weeks......right? Sorry, this is so long.....this is my first and I am getting scared!

It's different for every woman. Some are dialted 2 cm or so for 2 weeks before labor. On my first 7 days before my due date I wasn't making any progress, then on may 1st I lost my plug and was contracting but was only 1 cm dialated, then 10 hrs later I was 5 cmmm dialated and had him on may 2nd... so everything happened quite fast. I am 38 weeks 2 days on this one and have not yet been checked for dialation, my doc will check on Tuesday... I have a feeling tho that I am REAL close to labor now!

With my daughter I was dilated to 5cm for about thee weeks prior to having her. With my son I was 3 cm dialated about 5 weeks before he was born and the dr said I would not see my due date. Well I saw it plus 4 days. With my third I think I was about 3 for a few weeks prior as well. I am 35 weeks with my second and as of last week I was not dialated yet.
