Re: what is more telling of impending labor, effacement or dilation?
For me, neither meant anything. I was <1cm and about 20% effaced with DS1 the day I had him and labor was only 6hrs. With DS2 I was about 2cm and 20% effaced for the last 3 weeks and then my water broke and he also was born 6 hours later
