Re: what is more telling of impending labor, effacement or dilation?

my ob always told me that neither really meant labor was imminent, but that the more you efface prior to labor actually starting the quicker your labor is likely to go.

So perhaps remind her how much work her body is getting done now and hopefully labor and delivery will be quick and smooth.
