Quoting Lironah:“ If you're starting to dilate, then yeah, you're likely to deliver soon. I don't think I went longer than ... [snip!] ... - it's not easy to think clearly once those contractions start, and you can't count on your husband to be calm about it either!”
Why would she be likely to deliver soon? Dilation has absolutely NO say in when you will go into labor. I was 4 cm. for 3 weeks. Heck, I went into L&D at 5cm dilated and never even had a contraction.
Just because I was dilated long and you were only dilated a week has NO say on when the OP will deliver.
