ok so for the last past 2 or 3 weeks now i was in the hospital for contrackions an when the first time they where trying to stop me from going into labor an i understand why because if i would have had my baby girl at 33weeks at that time then she would have been on that suff so they sent me home. then about maybe some days after that i went back to the hospital but this time it was worst an i was about 34weeks or 35weeks an i was just in so much pain to where the my doctor told me i was braxton hicks false contrackions but now this time im still having them but also im feeling a lot pain in my vagina area and also im 1cm dilate. does this mean i will go into labor at any day now or that she needs to grow a little more before being born?...
Help me finger this out *snickers* Sorry, I am in a very silly mood. No, it doesn't mean anything. I was dilated at a 1 at 22 weeks with my oldest. By the time 30 weeks rolled around I was at a 3. I had to be induced at 36 weeks 5 days for pre e. But on the flip side, you can go from not dilated at all to a baby in your arms in a matter of hours. Dilation isn't a true indicator of when you will go into labor.

Yes you could go into labour. Yes she needs to grow more.
It depends on your hospital, but they normally treat pre-term labor until at least 35-36 weeks. Dilating to 1cm is no big deal at this stage in the game though. I'm normally 2 to 3 cm's dilated but I'm also not normal so don't go by my experience. Anyway, the further along you get, the contractions are going to get more uncomfortable. There will be spurts where its regular and time-able and periods where you'll get one or 2 big ones that knock you on your rear.
Because you're still early though, you should let your dr know if you're getting more than 4 to 6 per hour until you hit the 36 week mark.
