You could stay that way for the next few weeks. It's hard to tell. I wouldn't stress just yet
I'm 39 weeks and 50% effaced, only dilated to 2cm
I'm currently 39 weeks. I started have dilation and thinning at 32 weeks. I'm only 50% effaced and dilated to a 2-3cm. Water hasn't broken. I've had terrible contractions that have been stopped twice. Everybody's body is different but if this is your first you are more likely to past your due date. Just trying not to stress about it. It's a process for sure
With my last pregnancy. I was 80% effaced for weeks without dilating. Don't worry about it.
My dear friend was in labor for 5 weeks and dilating, she didn't her hers until Friday at 38 weeks plus... You're fine. Thank of it as a blessing. You are getting ready slowly. Maybe this will be a very easy l & d
