How many cm dilated before they keep you? *Corrina* Due October 9; 2 kids; California 1047 posts

I was wondering how many cm dilated do you have to be before they keep you in the hospital? or induce you if you are not progressing?

I was 10 days over due when I went in, but they kept me because I was 4 cm.

I thought you have to be about 4 and having regular contractions. I am sure every hospital is different.

I know here it is contractions at least 5 minutes apart and 30 seconds long. Even if you arent very dialated yet if it seems like you are progressing quickly, contractions becoming closer together or more intense they will keep you. But if you just show up and not much is happening they wont keep you til you are about three or four.

My hospital won't admit you unless you're 4 cm.

i was 4cm and in active labor at one hospital so they kept it. it depends if you are making any progress or not if they will keep you. depends on the hospital though

I was 2 cm with my first one.....but in active labor and progressing rapidly. I was 3 cm dilated from 33-34 weeks on with my second one, and they didn't keep me until I was in active labor. This time, I've been dilating....will get checked again on friday....and depending on how much I have dilated, they will keep me and induce me. The only reason they are keeping me and inducing me is because they are afraid I will not make it to the hosptial to have the baby (my last labor was 1 hour 5 minutes). Depends on your dr though.
