I went to the doctor on Friday. I'm 5cm and 90% effaced!!!

I had steady contractions all day Sunday but they never got closer than seven minutes together and 45 second long. They were strong enough that I had to really concentrate on my breathing to get through them though.

I'm due on Thursday....I just keep wondering how long I can walk around like this? Anyone else go this far, or further? Did you feel like your baby was going to just fall out?

Re: Halfway.....

I hope it happens soon for you. I was only up to a 3 before they induced me.

Re: Halfway.....

How exciting! Hopefully you'll have a nice quick labor if you're this effaced/dilated already! I've never really had any progress before the real deal set in.

Re: Halfway.....

since its your first its probably coming sooner than later - i've read about women being dilated and effaced for longer before delivering on subsequent pregnancies

Re: Halfway.....

I had been having a ton of contractions for months. I started thinning out, but it stopped. Then I went to the ob to discuss induction {I had PreEclampsia} and I was dilated 5/6 cms. I had lost my plug before heading to the ob. I had ds1 a couple of hours later. I really think if I hadn't lost my plug {which always equals labor for me} I wonder if I would have been walking around for another week!

Good luck mama! Hopefully it won't be too much longer for you! Sending fast & easy labor vibes your way!!
