1 cm dilated, how much longer ?
I am 37 weeks and 2 days pregnant, and I just found out today that I am 1 cm dilated... Roughly, how much longer until baby decides to come out ?

Well I was dilated 3 cm from the time I was 7 months. So going from that is really hard to tell.

have you had a show or have any lower back pain? its hard to say, even roughly. it may be a long labour which is why the first and 2nd cm are far apart but if your waters break it may be instant. have you had a show? this can happen 7-10 days before baby is born. walking may speed the process up although with your cervix opened it may be prone to infection x

Ohh, not even sure I should tell you this, but I was 1cm and had mild contractions for about 10 days or so.  It's really hard to say...could happen anytime or the little one may make you wait a bit longer.  So close now though...good luck!!

I have been 100% effaced and 1 cm dilated for over 4 months. I am pregnant with twins and 36 weeks 4 days. So I guess everyone is different and you never know, I've been checked for dilation weekly and no progress despite ongoing contractions for months. You are not "in labor" until 4 cm dilated. I don't know about you, but I sure feel ready though!

My midwife told me labor hasn't really started until 4cm and that those 4cm can take anything from weeks to hours.

so I guess the answer is... no one knows...

I hope it all goes well for you!
