Dilalation and Effacement Numbers?!

Hi ladies,

 Just wanted to compare numbers to see where people were at this week. Just went in for my 37 week appt - I'm 2.5 cm, 60% and at -1.  Dr. said that this doesn't neccesarily mean he's coming soon - some people stay at this point for weeks! :( where are others at?

Re: Dilalation and Effacement Numbers?!

  • I'm at one my doc didnt say any other numbers.
  • Im 36wks, dilated at 1 and 50% effacement.
  • I'm 37 weeks and have an appt. this afternoon.  Last week though I had nothing going on to say I was approaching labor.  We'll see after today though.  Sure am feeling some changes!
  • 37 weeks Dilated almost to 4 cm and effaced at 90 ..Still no active labor just on and off contractions. Ready to meet my baby girl!!
  • At week 36 I was 1cm dilated and 75% thinned. I go in on Wed to get my 37 week check up, hope I've progressed more!
  • I had my 37 week check up today and am 1.5 cm, 70% effaced and his little head is engaged.  After the exam I've been having menstrual type cramps and some low back pain, which I'm told is normal and a result of the exam, not a sign of active labor.
  • I am very close to you, 2.5 cm dilated and 50%.  So nervous because I haven't had noticeable contractions yet!  And knowing this is a life changing event has me scared I'm not ready for everything coming our way soon.

  • Had my 37 week appointment yesterday--I'm dilated at 1 cm and 50% effaced; the doctor said my cervix is "nice and soft" lol. Been having sporadic contractions which are getting more painful though still not terrible and not coming at regular intervals. :( Hurry up little man, I am more than ready for you to be here!!!!

  • Hey I'm 37wks2days and I am 3cm dialted, started having contractions sporatically since yesterday and started seeing the "bloody show" today. I hope that I have my little man by this weekend! Any tips, I've been told drink cold fluids and walk.
  • 2 cm dilated and almost 80% effaced at 37 weeks. I've been 2cm for the past 3 weeks though. Hoping things start to move faster. 
  • i am 37 weeks and the dr said i was 1 cm dilated, 60% efaced and baby is at +2 i think? maybe -2  i can't remember. but he also said to plan for more around my due date which is december 2 so i have a feeling that i will have a little more time to go :D good luck and i wish you all the best :)
  • At 36 & 3 days, I was 75% effaced and 3 cm dilated. My midwife kept saying 3.81 when she checked me, so I guess that's the actual number? LOL. Anyway, I am 37 weeks today.

  • 37 weeks, and at my 36 week appt my doc said im 3 cm dilated, and 50% effaced...


  • On monday i was exactly 37weeks and I'm almost dilated to a 2 with 70%effacement and she's head down. I get random contractions but nothing serious.
  • I've been 2+ cm dilated since 35 weeks (37 weeks now) but I've been getting more effaced, at 75% now. My doc said the baby's head is at -3. At the first appt though, she said she could feel the head and it's right there. I have occasional very mild cramping but it never becomes anything more. She keeps saying the baby will come early, but not anytime soon. So I guess that means before my due date of Jan 3rd but not this week? She keeps calling her a Christmas baby :)
  • 37 wk 1 d
    Station THREE. WTF? How am i not in labor,right???
  • Im 37wks & 3 days. Wednesday I was dialated 1cm and he said my cervix was thinning but never said a percentage but baby is head down and dropped and in position he said. Im just glad im moving along well. Good luck everyone!

  • I had my 37 week apt yesterday, and I am 1 cm.  The doctor rattled off some other numbers to me, but I had no idea what she was talking about :) I will be sure to ask her on Tuesday when I go for the 38 week appointment.
  • Just got back from our appointment. 36 weeks and 2 days, 3 1/2 centimeters dilated 100 effaced and doctor said if we make it to 39 weeks by a little chance she'll induce us !!!!!
  • 36.5 weeks and 2cm dilated :) was in false labor for a week though. Now I'm feeling great, just tired and having some bloody show which I was told is normal after an exam. Hoping baby comes in the next two weeks! Hubby and I feel ready...

  • I just had an appt yesterday. I am 1 cmdl ddilated and 90 effaced. Walk, walk, walk. It helps! :
  • I am 37 weeks today. I went in last week for week 36 check up and was already dilated to a 2. My doctor said she (baby) could come within the next 2 weeks. So, he had me come back on the following monday and I was at a 3. He updated it to that she could come this week! He said if she did not come by Thursday (today) that he wanted me to come back in. So I have an appointment this afternoon to see if there are anymore changes. My hubby and I cannot wait to meet our little girl.

  • At 36 w 1 d, I was checked, but no effacement or dilation. Dr. said cervix was softening though and baby is head down. I don't see the Dr. again until 37 w 4 d thanks to Memorial Day (my usual day to see him is Mondays and most of the rest of the week is booked.) Soooo...we'll see what he says then. I am experiencing some mild cramping tonight for the first time and I feel like the baby dropped some last night. 
  • 3cm dilated 80-90% effaced!
  • I'm at 37 weeks. As of last weeks appt. I was dilated to 1 cm. Dr didn't mention the other numbers. My next appt is this Thursday. I have been having a lot of pressure, cramps & back pains today.

    I'm almost to 1cm. Doc said cervix was "pretty thin" but didn't give a number. She did say his head was right above it.
    Forgiveness sets YOU free!
  • At my 36 week appointment last Mon, my doc. said that I was 1.5 cm dilated and 70% effaced. My next appointment is this coming Mon. We will see if there have been any developments when I go in on the next appointment.
