I am 39 weeks pregnant and one day and my cervix is VERY soft my O.B says, what does this mean. I am not dilated at all does this mean anything? Am I still able to go into labor this week. I feel like Im never going to have this baby.
I'm about a week and a half behind you (38 weeks on Wednesday) and have been told my cervix is soft, too. I'm not dilated at all (cervix is closed), but I have started effacing and the head has come down. I've read of others who have been 2-3 cm dilated several weeks before birth, so I'm not really sure if no dilation means a later birth or not...but it didn't seem like it was anything abnormal to my doctor, at least. I guess we'll see what he says at my next appointment.
