3 cm 80% effaced

So I had my 39 week appt today and also had my first internal exam. I'm 3cm and 80% effaced so the dr also swept my membranes. Anyone else have a similar situation? How long until your labor started? I know everyone is different, just curious about other experiences. Thanks!

  • That's encouraging! Thanks for sharing.
  • I'm 40 wks 1 day, and got the same dilation/effacement today. No membrane sweep though. I've been having contractions all day, but they are irregular. It's my 4th baby, I suspect he will be here any day.

  • I was 3 cm and 50% last Thursday.  I had a membrane sweep and my water broke at 3:30 the next morning.  
  • I was 3cm and 80 percent when I had my membranes swept and I ended up being induced 2 days later.

    I was the same at 39w but declined a sweep. Was 4cm and 80 at 39w5d, got a sweep then, and it made me really crampy and achy for two days, but no labor. I got a prenatal chiro adjustment three days after the sweep at 40w1d, went into labor six hours later and had my D the next day.

    Hang in there!
