As everyone else said, you could have days or weeks. You're not due for several weeks; you have plenty of time.

With my second baby I was never checked for dilation but my water broke at 36wks and before contractions started I was 4cm, 100% effaced. I never had contractions until several hours after my water broke. My third baby I had conractions fir weeks before I was induced, same with my first.. What you're feeling are likely Braxton hicks and not true labor contractions.

I was 1cm for weeks. I ended up being induced at 40 weeks and 2 days. Everyone is different, though. Good luck!

I was 1 cm and started losing my mucus plug at 30 weeks, constant contractions(3-5 minutes apart) started at 36 weeks, and had him at 41 weeks.

being 1-3 cm dilated doesn't mean shit really. I'd say you are going to be waiting until close to your due date.

Intrinsically a piece of string has length but that length is unknown hence the
: the phrase 'how long is a piece of string' means that the quantitative answer is not known and there is an implicate understanding that the answer will be difficult to find given the information available.



That is all ....
