I am still 2cm. and 80% effaced. My doctor told me I am at -1 station. I have been having cramps and contractions since yesterday at my appointment though. She is inducing me anyway if I don't go into labor by Wednesday, so that is exciting!

Nothing for me... He did say my cervix was softening...but no dialation and he said if he had to give it a number, maybe 20% effaced. How discouraging. Hopefully I'm one of those people that will just spontaneously go into labor without having dialated. I have been having tons of BH contractions since 32 weeks, clearly they haven't helped! Oh well...just a couple more weeks.

Went to the doctor today and no change again. I'm still at 2cm, 50% effaced, and baby is high. She did say that she could feel his head, so at least he's in the right spot!

I was actually hoping for no change this week since my doctor is leaving for a week long vacation and my mom will be out of town on a business trip. So no baby allowed until they both return!!

Can you believe nothing yet?. I went to the doctor's today,and nothing. This is so frustrating. Everybody keeps teasing me saying he's going to be late becasue he's stubborn like his parents.

I got my first internal last night and was told that I was thinning--but no dilation yet. Dr said that the baby's head was "right there".....and the internal was so painful! My next appointment is Monday--but I can't see myself changing that much in just five days.

No progress to report here. Still 2cm, 50% and baby is high. My cervix is also very posterior - I almost had to sit on my hands so my doc could reach it.

Come on, let's see some progress!!!

My doc said I was about 2cm last monday (7/31) so by the time I am induced on monday (8/7) I should be about 3cm since I have been dialating about a cm a week. I guess I'll have to wait and see in 2 days!

My doc checked me today. She said I was 1cm dialated, and that my cervix was still high. Gosh, I have been feeling so much pressure though. I can't imagine baby getting any lower without popping out.

My edd is August 22nd but I am getting induced on August 16. At last monday's dr appt I was 2-3 cm and he said the head is down. I have been losing my mucous plug since that appt. I have gotten so excited thinking that the baby was coming soon. But i don't know. Last night I was having contractions 30 min apart and then this morning they were painful and 15 min apart but then they just went away. I don't understand it. This is my second pregnancy. I never got this far with my first one. I was induced with him. I think I only dialated to barely 1 cm and so I thought maybe this time things were moving along pretty good. But they seem to have got my hopes up and now they are stopping. I really don't want to be induced again, I would really much rather go into labor myself, but it doesn't seem to be happening. My next appt is this coming up wed. That is my story. I am so anxious to see my baby and to be normal again. Good luck everyone.

1 cm, 50% effaced. 37 weeks.

I also want to say, that earlier I said getting examined didn't hurt...well I take that back. Now that I'm dilated, it did hurt! Apparently you keep getting more swollen and sensitive so it hurts more...just more to look forward to!

I know it could still be weeks, but I didn't dilate at all with DS until I went into labor 2 days after EDD!

BORING~ Only 10% of women water break. So if you're having contractions definitely keep track of them. However, if your water breaks I believe that the baby has 24 hours to be delivered not 12. Hope this helps!

yesterday at my appt at 38w4d I was 2cm dialated and 60-70% effaced. The midwife said she could feel the baby's head. But my cervix is still high and baby has yet to completely drop.
But about an hour ago I lost the mucous plug so I am hopeful that things will start happening VERY soon!!!

38 weeks 4 days today~ doc just stripped my membranes and said Im 3cm dilated, 80% effaced and 0 station. Made lots of progress in a week. He doesn't think I'll make my next check up on Monday. He's so confident Im going to deliver in the next few days that he scheduled my 6 week post partum appt already. I sure hope he's right!!

Good luck ladies!!

simply it tells you what progress your body is going through. also you want to be more dilated before you actually go into labor because then you aren't waiting AS LONG to finally push. each braxton hick gets you further along in dilating and that's really good. no it wont tell you when you go into labor, but it gives you an idea possibly if it'll be sooner or later.

i'm 2cms and 0% effaced. so I'm not going as soon as most people had expected me to. also, it gives me a heads up that I can continue my business and not take maternity leave just yet.
change can always happen at any moment though.
but it's fun to get the stats and find out how much your body has progressed!

Even though effacement and dialation are no indicators of exactly when you will go into labor, I think knowing that something is happening to the cervix can keep a woman thinking positive.

On the other side of it, sometimes knowing is frustrating because there doesn't seem to be anything happen. I've been trying to get over my frustrations of no effacement and closed cervix for almost a week.

Ladies, could you pls explain what's the purpose of this exercise - what is the value of knowing how much you are dilated/effaced?

I was told it's not significant and that the only thing that matters is if my water breaks - I have to head for the L&D straight away because baby has to be born wihtin 12 hours after that.

Help, please?

I got checked yesterday! As the nurse was leaving I figured "oh well, maybe next week" because she hadn't given me instructions to stip from bottom down. but just as she was reaching for the door reading the chart she stops and asked "do you want her to check see if your dilated?" i said "yeah!!" lol

she checks, I'm 38weeks 2 days pregnant.
2cms dilated (gained half cm in three weeks - thats it?!!) and NOT effaced at all. poooopie.

It's a lot better then my first pregnancy. I wasn't dilated or effaced at all up until my 40 week 1 day appointment.

Last week, at 35w5d, I was 2 cm dilated and 70% effaced. I'm going back tomorrow and praying for additional progress. Dr. said that if my body is progressing, he'll induce me any time after this week (my baby is growing a little slowly and there's a little concern that the placenta could be drying up a bit)! How great would that be?!?

Hmmm - I haven't even been checked yet... I have a very funny feeling that the baby might come this week though... I've been super crampy and I'm fairly sure I've lost my mucus plug already. Next dr appt is Wednesday - they're doing another u/s ... maybe I'll know more then!

Than on the 25th I think I lost my mucus plug. But other than that I have not had any contractions besides Braxton Hix here and there. My next appointment is on Aug. 2nd. I am hoping for some good news that the baby will be coming soon. I am due the 15th.

I know she has dropped more. My stomach feels like its going to just fall off! And all the extra skin is sagging under my belly! That skin was NOT there a few days ago! Yuck!

At my appt this past Fri my Dr checked and said that my cervix was softening, but no dilation, etc so far. And she hasn't dropped. I'm bummed that there is no progress, but also relieved because I'm not quite ready for the little one to come yet. A couple more weeks at the earliest.

I am currently 38w4d preggo, and am only 1 cm dialted. I am unsure about the effacement and station, though. I am due on 8-10, but I have a feeling my little girl might come just a little late.

On Friday I am zero effaced and zero dilated. He couldn't even strip my membranes because my cervix is closed tight. Also, my baby is still up high. I hope I'm one of those ladies who is at zero today and then has her baby in a few days.

I have another appt on Wed - send labor vibes!

I'm annoyed. My doc doesn't check until 38 weeks...so I have another week and a half to go before I'll know anything. May be good for me though b/c I've heard of people walking around at 3-4 cm for weeks on end with nothing happening. On the other hand, if I'm not dialated at all yet, I'd probably be depressed. So, I guess I'll just get to play the waiting game! :) Good luck to those of you who have started dialating! I hope your labor day and healthy babies arrive soon!!!

Runnerchick - Station is the position of the baby in the pelvis. It starts at -5 and goes to +5 with 0 in the middle. Negative numbers means the baby is still "floating" above the pelvic bones. Zero means the baby's head is right in line with the pelvis. Positive numbers mean the baby is starting to move through the birth canal and the baby crowns when you're at +5.

Hope that helps!

Im not sure what the different stations mean. I believe it has to do with the location of the head into the pelvic area. The distance of the head into the area ready for when labor starts. This is my 3rd baby at 37 weeks I was a cm dilated and alittle bit more then 50% effaced. From experience that doesn't mean anything. I've had friends who have been a couple of cm's dilated for weeks walking around. Others weren't dilated at all and the next day had their babies. Good luck ladies!! It won't be long before we are holding our babies in our arms. With this heat wave im almost glad I have another week. Its alittle easier to hold her inside than have to carry her and take care of my two energetic little boys. Thank god for air conditioning!!!


Our little girl will greet her 2 big brothers on August 8th. (Scheduled c-section)

I don't get all those stats. My dr doesn't say and I forgot to ask. Lets hope the cramping I've been having has moved things since this, but at week 39 visit- 3cm dilated and my cervix wasn't ripe yet.

I love how we have all these stats. Feels like we're preparing for battle.
