I had my 36th prenatal appointment today. The doc says I am 50% effaced, head is still floated, cervix is directly in line with vaginal opening, 1 cm dilated. Do you feel this indicates that I will be pregnant for 40+ weeks/post-term?? Please share your experiences with dilation/effacement and station. Thank you!
Sorry, head is still floatING. lol
Correction: 36th week appointment.
I know that I was already like 3.5 cm dilated at my 36 week appt. and I still had to be induced. Stubborn baby. lol.
I was in labor, 4 cm dilated and my son was still floating. they broke my water and he was born 30 min later.
At 34 weeks I was 50% effaced,and at 36 weeks I was 50%effaced and 1 cm dialated.. I ended up being induced at 39 weeks and before they started any pitocin on me I was 3cm and 80% effaced on my own. My cousin was 38weeks and 100%effaced for 2 weeks and went to her due date and was induced. So it really depends on your body, if your bodys not ready…it could still be a while yet and it’s possible you can go over due, also dialation can happen very fast so it’s also very possible it can be soon…Good Luck, I hope you get to meet your little one soon… Take care
Dont to bring you down but i started dilating at 29 wks and at 40 wks 3days i was 100% effaced and 5cm dilated and still not in active labor but when i was induced it only took 1 hr including pushing to have her!
at 36 weeks i was 1cm, 50% effaced and his head was engaged. i had to be induced 2 days after my due date because of my blood pressure/blood count and even then i was still 1cm and 70% effaced when they started the induction. theres no way to tell when u will go into labor based on ur cervix since everyone is different but i hope its soon for u hun
At 37 weeks I was 50% effaced, 0cm dilated. At 38 weeks I was 60% effaced, 1.5cm dilated. At. 39 weeks I was 80% effaced and 1.5cm dilated. Also the baby was engaged at 0 station since 36 weeks. My son was born 9 days over due!
At my 36 wk appt I was 50% effaced and 2cm dialated. I stayed that way until I went into labor. My water broke on its own and I went into labor on my own. I had my daughter one day before her due date.
