Re: Based on Your Experience(s)

At my last check with DD I was only 1cm and 25% effaced. I believe that was on a Thursday or Friday, and then she was born on the following Tuesday (at 40+2).

Re: Based on Your Experience(s)

With DS, I know I was at 1cm during my 37/38 weeks check-up with OB. Not sure how many % effaced since the OB didn't say anything.

But my water broke a few days after my appointment with the OB, and out he came 8 hours later. DS was about 9 days early.

I was induced both times but 2 cm at 37 weeks with DD and 3 cm at 38 weeks with DS. My mom however, was walking around at 4cm overdue- she was almost 42 weeks pregnant with me!

I have had 4 deliveries. I always have a very favorable cervix.

Maybe you and hubby could enjoy each others company wink wink and get it moving drug free? Certainly can't hurt.

Re: Based on Your Experience(s)

I can't remember exactly with ds1, but with ds2 I was 2.5 -3cm and fairly effaced (can't remember the % exactly) around 10pm the night before I had him (i basically went it for a false alarm)... he was born at 5:15pm the following day.

I had not other checks until they said, all you have left is an anterior lip, lol. This was about 10 minutes after we walked in the hossy doors and he was born a mere 5 or so minutes after that .

Re: Based on Your Experience(s)

With ds1 I had a OB and at 36 weeks I was 2 cm already and I went into labor at 41 weeks naturally. My water was broken at the hospital at about 15 hours into labor.

I was a third time momma, and sat at 4 cm with bulging bag of water for over 2 weeks. Dr. swept membranes twice and still nothing. At 3 days past due he broke my water and labor progressed naturally (no pitocin).

Re: Based on Your Experience(s)

With my last pregnancy, I was a fingertip dilated and not effaced at all. My water broke that night.

For this reason I am not having any internals done with this pregnancy. It really means nothing!
