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!
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 🙂
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 🙂
