How long can I be at 3cm dilated?
 
I went to my 38 week check up yesterday morning and I was at 3 cm dilated. I had contractions all day yesterday with lots of discomfort and pressure. The contractions have stopped but I am still not able to do a whole bunch.....even walking is a challenge. I really want to get this labor going again, any advice? I literally feel like this baby is right there and practically hanging out! I have had a lot of pre-labor and am just ready to get this show on the road.

UPDATE 7-24-09
went in for my induction and currently at 4 cm with contractions every three or four minutes. Nothing can keep me away from DS, ha ha! Still feeling okay and have avoided further meds, etc. at this point.....

I am at 3cm right now and I have been for a few days (due mid august). i wont be having more internals now that I am just about full term. With my son (baby #2) I was 3cm for almost 2 weeks then prgressed to 5 and stayed there for almost 6 days before labor finally started. The day I went into labor I walked about 3 miles. I was just tired of being pregnant and at that point I was a few days past my due date.

Hang in there, Mama! It wont be much longer.

I was 4cm for over two weeks with my last, I was in slow labor for about 10 days. Contractions would start get regular then stop. I can't count how many times we thought it was actually happening then didn't.

my neighbor was just dilated at 5 for days, before that she was 3-4 for over a week. she is at a 7 now and they think she is finally fully in labor. As weird as it sounds apparently you can walk around that way for awhile (not that it makes it easy to walk though)

I know how you feel mama! I was 2 cm with DS at 37w5d and he was born 5 days later. This time I've been 2 cm since Tuesday (38w3d), and had contractions every 3 mins last night for 40 mins and then they stopped!! :banghead: I'm ready to get this show on the road too!

I was 3cm 80% at 35 weeks with my first child. I finally delivered her at 40 weeks, 5 days.

With my son I was 3cm 80% at 37 weeks and delivered him at 40w 4d.

I was induced with both.
