2 to 3 cm dilated... Stephanie0630 2 kids; Illinois 62 posts
10th Jun '08

My doctor says I'm 2 to 3 cm dilated!! I know that sometimes this means you can start labor within days, but I've also been told sometimes you can go for weeks being this far dilated. I don't want to get my hopes up, but since this is my second baby I'm hoping I'll go within the next two weeks. Is there anyone out there that can share how long they were dilated 2 to 3cm before they went into labor?

I don't want to spoil things but I went to L & D Saturday w/ contractions 4 mins apart am dialated to 4 cm and the dr sent me home. I have a drs appt tomorrow and hopefully he will decide to induce. I have a daughter who is only 13 mos old and thought I would go very quickly as well. So far........

With my second I was between 2 and 3 for a month and she was a day over due. I know a day isnt much but still I was that much for a month before I had her. With my 3rd baby I was that for a week before they induced me. Once I did go into labor with my second baby she came very quickly. I was only at the hospital for 34 minutes before she was completley out and in my arms.

With my son i was dialated to a 3 for about 3 weeks and thought it was a cruel joke because everyone else, that i knew,at the time when they dialted that far was in real labor. Hope it does not take that long for u.
