Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
With both girls, my last appointment had me at 0 dilated or effaced, yet both times, my water just broke. My water did break earlier with DD2, though (37w0d vs 39w3d for DD1)
Last time I was 3 cm starting around 37 weeks. As of yesterday, I was only 2 cm. It doesn't mean much though!
I feel like I write this response every week. =)
dd1 41 weeks 2 days after 3 days of induction starting at 41 weeks
dd2 41 weeks 2 days after 1 day of induction start at 41 weeks 1 day.
dd3 - no signs of coming any earlier than her sisters.
I was not dilated with #1 at 40 weeks, and was induced.
I was 3 cm by 37 weeks with #2 and delivered him at 38+6.
I'm 1 cm with #3 and have been since 30 weeks!
Yes I was 1 cm at 36 wks with first
3cm with my second and third at my 36 wk appt.
I have no idea with baby #4 since my doc doesn't do cervical checks till 37 weeks
Dd 1 induced for low fluid at 41 2 days. 0 diliated 0% effaced.
Dd2 40 weeks fingertip and not effaced at 40 weeks. Went into labor on my own 2 days later.
At 36 weeks nothing. I should pass on the internals butI like knowing even though I don't progress early.
With DD#1 I was dilated to a 2-3 for about 4 weeks and had her 3 days past my due date.
With DD#2 I wasn't dilated at all when I had my 38 week appointment. I had DD#2 the following day after my appointment @ 38w6d.
Overall, being dilated means nothing. I plan on declining internals this time around because I don't want to work myself up over not being dilated, even though I know it means nothing.
