Does posterior cervix mean labor is not close?

When I had my cervical exam (38 weeks) I was told my cervix was 1cm dilated and 50% effaced.  They said it was still very posterior.  Does this mean that labor is no where close?  Is it normal for your cervix to dilate and thin out with your cervix still in a posterior position?  Does it mean my baby's head isn't putting enough pressure on my cervix?

My sis had the same thing, but that can change in a day or a few days.  The day they told her that, she had terrible BH contractions and found out a few days later she was ready to be induced.
