Re: How long were you 4cm dilated?

I too am an early dilator. DS1 was the longest at 4+ centimeters for nearly 7 weeks.

I was checked for the first time at 37 weeks. I was 4cm & 80%. I started having contractions every 6 minutes around 6pm that evening. I delivered the following evening. My sweet girl was delivered at 37 weeks 1 day.

At exactly 37 weeks I was having strong, minute long contractions every 2 minutes for 6 hours. I was checked and found to be 4cm. I was still 4cm at 40 weeks.

Re: How long were you 4cm dilated?

I am one of those who doesn't dilate beyond 2 until party time... although, I couldn't say for sure w/my last because I wasn't ever checked... not in pregnancy (aside from the pap at the beginning of my pregnancy) & not in labor.

For me it was not worth the pain, risk of infection, & let down of hearing I was X cm and expecting to be further along that that... or hearing I was X cm & thinking it wouldn't be long, but it was. Had that happen w/#3... they kept saying I'd deliver soon... yet I labored for well over a week... & the last stretch was a solid 36 hours w/not a moment's break. Talk about exasperated.. that was crazy!

Re: How long were you 4cm dilated?

I was 4cm at 37 weeks and still at 41 weeks. I went into labor at almost 42 weeks and still labored for almost 36 hours. I've found dilation means nothing for me.

Yeah starting to think it means nothing for me as well, I'm going to start taking epo again tonight (since I'll be full term tomorrow) although I'm kinda hoping for next weekend (my mom is going out of town and I don't want her to miss it
