Hey I am 36 weeks along and already dilated to a 1 and cervix is soft. How likely do you think I will be to go into labor in next week or 2?

Not very.



There are women who are dilated to 3 cm since 36 weeks and end up going overdue. Dilation doesn't mean you're going into labor any time soon.

I was dilated to a 3, for 5 weeks before going into labor.. I think if it's been a normal pregnancy, and it's your first child, you likely won't go into labor in the next week or 2, but who knows.

I was 1cm dialated at 34 weeks and it stayed that way for 3 weeks, then went to 1 and a half til my due date then I got induced. So, it could happen but there's a good chance it won't.

I was 3cm and 70% at 35 weeks and by 38 weeks was still 3cm and 80%. Could be a while or could be soon. Only baby knows... :D

I was dilated to a 3 and almost completely effaced from 32 weeks on with my daughter. She was almost 2 weeks late.

At 35 weeks, I was 6cm, and I'm still going strong at 37 weeks. Dilation has no indication of when labor will begin. BTW I was 3cm at 28 weeks.
