3rd baby, 36w2d, 1.5 cm dilated, 50% effaced

My question is for 2nd & 3rd time mom's etc, did you go into labor faster once you started dilating & effacing? I've also been getting contractions for 1.5 weeks now & they're becoming more intense. I've gone on walks & had sex. I want baby out..lol.  Would love your input

  • I was dilated 1cm since at least 29 weeks, and by 35 weeks I was 2cm and 70% effaced.  I'm almost 39 weeks now with no change.  Is it possible for labor to be quicker?  Maybe?  But it's different for everyone.  My advice would be wait until you're full term to try inducing labor, and speak to your OB about it.

  • This is my 3rd and I have been 4cm dialated 50% effaced and her head engaged for 2 weeks now.  I have tons of painful contractions daily but no baby yet.  The body will do what it needs to when it is ready.  My last child I was walking 4cm for over a month until he came.  Agree with others talk to your OB.  It is best to keep them cooking as long as they need to.
