50% effaced, 2 cm dilated — The Bump

50% effaced, 2 cm dilated

I cried a happy and nervous cry on the way home from today's appointment knowing that my babies are really on their way now.  My doctor seems to think I can make it into next week and even scheduled my c/s for April 24 (the date we picked last week didn't pan out).  I'm planning to rest like crazy and try to get one more week!  Do you think that's likely?

  • you can walk around effaced and dilated for weeks... but with twins your chances are that you'll go sooner, since the avg twin birth goes to 35-36w.

    i was a fingertip dilated and 80% effaced for 6 weeks with my singleton - then was induced - so might have gone longer.

    good luck!

  • I've been about 3 cm dilated for about 4 weeks now (I went into PTL at 31w3d).  So it's definitely possible to make it farther.  I was on hospital bed rest and now strict bed rest at home though so I know that helped me to get farther along.  If you take it easy, I think there's a good chance you can make it at least another week or more - good luck!

  • I was 2 cm dilated at 36 weeks and 4.5 cm dilated at my induction at 38 weeks so its possible to walk around dilated and effaced for awhile.

  • I know I could stay at this point for a while, but it helps to hear that some of you actually have.  Thanks!  I'm sort of considering myself on bedrest to prolong this as much as I can even though the doctor just said to get lots of rest and take it easy.
