Thin cervix but no dilating? ElenaBiani 1 child; Houston, Texas 60 posts

So I just got back from the doctor and he said my cervix was soft and thin but no dilation yet. He also said the head was low.....what does this mean? Am I almost ready?? Can my cervix be thin and not dilated? If so, how do I get it to dilate lol? I'm confused.

It thins out just before it dilates, usually that is. Getting a lot of contractions is the best way to make it dilate. So maybe start talking some long walks or having sex to see if it helps.

My cervix started shortening a couple of weeks ago but I am not dilated yet. You can thin out without dilation- they are different, although related, processes. My cervix is soft and ripe and I have lost part of my mucous plug so I know dilation is right around the corner- though I am in the opposite position from you. I am trying to prevent dilation. LOL

Thanks. Yeah, my doctor said that if I don't go into labor by week 40, he'll induce me the next day, which is fine with me....I'd just love to get it over with now. I hope it doesn't take forever to start dilating. Is swimming good for that too?

I know, I just bumped into an old friend that I hadn't seen in about 6 years, back then I was a little chunky and lost some weight since then, she didn't even realize i was pregnant lol. She was shocked then wh en i told her I was ni ne months pregnant she really went into shock. She said she couldn't tell, that I even looked thinner than in high school. I thought it was really funny.
