Dilation — The Bump

Dilation

Just out of curiosity, for those of you that have had internals already, are you dilated yet and if so, how much?  I had an internal last week and this week and I'm not dilated yet.

  • Had one yesterday. 80% effaced. 0 station and 1 cm dilated. I was starting to get excited but from what I read, I could stay like this for weeeks or go tommorrow. The baby comes when she come I guess :). I just hope I don't go overdue. I'm super swollen in my hands and feet and it sucks.
  • At 36w on Monday I was 1cm dilated and 50% effaced.

  • 1 cm, 80% effaced and -1 station at 36w 4d...still there today at 37w 4d. Dr said she's had patients who are 3 cm dialated for weeks before delivering and she's also had patients who aren't dialated at all and deliver the next day. Makes you wonder what the point of them checking for dialation/effacement in the first place is then :)
  • 1cm since 33 weeks. I go in again Monday.

  • My due date is 1/6.  I had an internal done yesterday and I'm not dilated at all.

    Grrr

    This is why I turn down internals. A friend of mine was 5cm for THREE weeks and went a week past her EDD. Knowing serves no purpose really. Your water can break tomorrow when you have no dilation/effacement, or you can be dilated for weeks.

    Exactly! My dr doesn't do any internals until 38 or 39 weeks. She says they hurt and increase the risk of infection and the best way to know when the baby is coming is if you go into labor.

    My friend who is due in a couple of days has been getting them done and she's getting so frustrated and impatient from it.

    You know what I notice is funny about the boards? In 3rd tri, everyone is impatient to meet their LO and is done being pregnant. In 0-3/3-6 everyone wishes they were pregnant again. lol!

  • At my appointment yesterday dr said I was 1-2 cm, and he did a "stretch and sweep", without telling me until it was too late, and I feel like I'm one of the only ones who actually wants my LO to stay put until the New Year, (s)he is welcome as soon as the clock strikes 12:01am on the first, but I really hope I get to be one of those women who walk around like this for a week or more, but of course I'll be the one meeting my LO tomorrow...lol, I have a feeling I won't make it and I'm sure it's just because I want to!

  • I had an internal two weeks ago and last night.  I am not dilated but Dr. did say my cervix is starting to soften and baby's head is right on my cervix.  Dr. didn't seem too worried about my lack of dilation I do have several weeks to go.
  • At my 36 week appointment, I was 2.5 cm.  Not sure about effacement, but dr said my cervix was "ready to go"...whatever that means. Stick out tongue
  • 2 cm last week at my 37 week appointment

  • At my little scare two weeks ago they said I was long and closed, which was music to my ears after having hours of contractions every 3 minutes.  I don't him to come early.
