Probably early labor.

You could be at a 2 for weeks.
I was at a four for over a week.

it could be early labor, but honestly you could stay like that for a while. i've been 4 cm dilated and 80-90% effaced for the last 3 weeks! lol. i'm 36 weeks today.

Coud be BHs. Could be early labor. You could go into labor later tonight or go over your due date. I was 2cm at 37wks and didn't have my son till I was 41 wks, and at 37wks I was in pain a lot-complete misery thought i would go into labor any minute and never did :( I had to be induced.

It could be early labor and you could go overdue.

I was 2cm and had BH every 4-6 minutes for two weeks before I had DD. You'll really never know.
