3cm dilated at 35 weeks, trying not to get too excited.

So at my last appointment I was 35 weeks and my doc said I was already 3cm dilated. The more I read and research the more I hear about women being dilated for 3-4 weeks even with it being their 2nd baby also. My doc said that it could mean I go soon or that I could go to my due date (the 29th). I don't want her to come sooner than 37 weeks but I am SO uncomfortable and over being pregnant! I hate to complain because I know what a blessing pregnancy is but I'm tired, grumpy and uncomfortable. My last day of work is scheduled to be May 17th..financially I hope I make it till then because if not I'll have unpaid time off. I literally feel like a ticking water bomb LOL. Thanks for letting me vent.

Re: 3cm dilated at 35 weeks, trying not to get too excited.

  • I wasn't checked at 35 weeks, but at 36 I was 2cm, at 37 I was a tight 3cm and at 38 I was a solid 3cm.  But baby is still high at -2 station.  Originally doc was saying I prob wouldn't make it to due date and now it seems things have slowed.  I guess you just never know, I have my 39 week appt. Thursday so I am hoping for progress!

  • I have the same due date and am also 3cm but this is my first pregnancy. I just spent the night in L&D with contractions. I am really hoping I can make it to 37 weeks (or beyond).

    Ive been 4cm since 30w and it was scary.  You still have 5 weeks to go.  Id relax a bit.

  • At my 35 week appointment, I was about 2cm and 40% effaced. At todays appointment (36) he didn't even check, because she was no longer "engaged." :( I feel the same as you, that I obviously don't want her to come any earlier then when she is ready, I was just hoping that she would be ready, a little before 40 weeks :) But, at least we know there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Wether it's 2 weeks from now, or 4 it will be over soon.

    Yes, 2 weeks or 4 weeks..it will be over soon. I already asked and my doc said if she's not here by my due date he would induce the next day if I wanted.

    i think the average time is 41w 1 day. I wouldn't ask for an induction the day after my due date.  

     Op - this is exactly why I have yet to be checked. I don't want to son h ext few weeks thinking it could be anytime.

  • My dr told me at 36/37 weeks that I'd probably have the baby before 5/1 as I was 3cm and 70%. A week later I was 80%. Tomorrow is 5/1 and we'll see if she shows up before her due date 5/5.,,

  • I just got home from my 40 week and I am not even a fingertip dilated. Doc still thinks the baby could be here this week. We'll see

  • I had my 37 week appt last week and Dr. said I was 3 cm, 80% effaced, and LO was at +1 station.  He said you will likely have this baby within 24 hours and not to worry about scheduling an appt for next week b/c LO would be here by then.  Well, LO hasn't arrived yet.  Rushing around that day finishing up for nothing.  Debating if I will get checked tomorrow, as it doesn't seem too reliable.  LO will come when she comes.  Just live life as normal, no one really knows when our LO's will come.
  • I have the same due date as you and haven't even been checked yet. I don't have any contractions and I know that dilation doesn't really mean much - you can walk around for weeks 3 cm dilated or not be dilated at all and go into labor that day. 

    I ALSO have the same last day of work! I just thought that was funny. I can't wait!! It's not so much as being uncomfortable, but the HEAT - I can't stand it! (California desert girl over here....mid 90s is kicking my ).

    With both of my boys I was dilated 2 cm for at least 2 weeks and still had to be induced!

    My doctor did even check me at yesterday's appointment because he said it's still too soon (I am 37 w).

    Who are these people who are excited about the possibility of going early when they're not even full term yet?!?!?  It's amazing how much I'm seeing that here!

    Agreed. I'm not sure why so many women are excited about *possibly* going into labor 5 weeks early.
