40 weeks pregnant, contractions 5 minutes apart & not dilated?




My due date was yesterday. This morning I went to the doctor and they told me I was not dilated at all and only 75% effaced. I have been having strong labor symptoms for days, and was spotting all day yesterday which I think was due to my mucus plug/bloody show. Tonight I am having contractions that are getting stronger about 5 minutes apart.. they are really painful. and are getting closer. I just got checked today..so I don't know what to do. I have been having so many false signs lately.. Do you think I could of dilated in a matter of hours? They scheduled me to be induced on Monday the 15th today as well..

If they are getting closer together and stronger go in. You can dilate in a matter of minutes.

yes, you can dilate that quickly. For personal comfort reasons (your own shower, food/drink readily available, comfy bed) I personally recommend you wait til they are 3-4 min apart til you go in.
