Baby will come when ready, and nothing you do will make it happen sooner. You're only 35 weeks, you shouldn't even be thinking much about dilation. There's still another 5-7 weeks before baby will come and these last few weeks are vital for development in both the lungs and weight.

Not at all. I didn't dilate till 3 days before labour. Some people might dilate early, but there is no set time that it has to occur.

i dilated to 3 cm when iwas 37 weeks and i tried everything you can list to help me along at that point.. and NOTHING, I mean nothing did anything...  and being dilated didnt speed up my labor in anyway...

I gave birth the day before my due date despite going into the early stage of labor 3 weeks earlier... and even once i was in labor, i stalled out at 6 cm (even though i got there quick)...

As excited as you are, the best thing you can do for yourself right now is to do anything for yourself =P.. you wont have time to in 5 weeks..

good luck

You can go up to 2 weeks overdue. Anytime from 37-42 weeks is an average time for baby to be born.

I was a 5 for over a week after the dr stripped my membranes and I still had to be induced!  We tried everything. The only reason they induced was because I lived so far from the hospital and had an 18 month old at home at the time.  Baby will come when baby is ready. Good luck.
