I'm 38 weeks and 6 days.
I've been 2 cm dilated and 70% efaced since Monday Nov 26. And my doctor told me that baby boy's head is extremely low!
I went into the hospital on the 25th and they told me I was having contractions, but I wasnt feeling them and they weren't frequent.
It's been 11 days and still no change
I was just curious to hear some stories, maybe similiar to mine, and to get people's guesses on how much longer they think it'll be! (just for fun) :)
Thanksss!

You can go early. Or you can go over. None of those things mean anything.



I had regular contractions 3-5 minutes apart for an entire month and still got induced at 41 weeks.

I thought all the things uou described would make the doctor and nurses concerned and would want you in to make sure you don't go into labor sooner than anticipated.

i was 1 cm dilated on my 40th week check up..well i had been having contractions for about a month, the only way i knew i was having them was when the doctor told me. i never really felt any contractions at all...i got induced at 4am on october 17th, and had her at 7:41pm..i didnt feel any of my contractions until about 4pm...so that tells you how fast stuff can go:) lol

it just depends how your body is. sometimes you can go into labor quick even right after some false contractions.. others you will get false contractions FOREVER.

I don't think they are normally too concerned once you reach 37 weeks
