Ok, so, when I was pregnant with my first LO I dilated fast. I was like 75% effaced and 2 cm dilated at 36 weeks.
This pregnancy at 37 weeks I was only 50% effaced and my cervix was still closed. 38 almost 39 weeks Im still only 1-2cm and still 50% effaced.
My doctor told me with your second pregnacy it goes slower, but once it starts "she'll shoot out like a torpedo."
Is that really how it is? Im feeling like she just wants to cook a whole lot longer lol
It just depends...no one can predict labor or how long it will last. My first child i was in labor for 8 hours and he was 2 weeks early, second i was three days early and labored almost 40 hours and third labored 10 hours and was 1 day early nly because i begged my OB to strip my membranes or else im sure i would have went over at least a week....we will see how it goes with the fourth. Good luck to you!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, Im due the 9th. So I have plenty of time to worry I guess lol I just like to have plans for everything. My Dr decided to go on vacation 2 days before my due date, so being put with another Dr already has me worried.
