Waiting......

Hello ladies.....I'm 37 weeks 5 days. My pregnancy has been smooth so far. Monday my doc admitted me to be monitored because my BP was high....I was 2cm 60% effaced. Last night around 11 I had pretty strong contractions for 4 hours...doc advised I go in. Around 415am I was 3cm 70%....they checked me again hour and a half later and I was 3cm 100% effaced. They sent me home because contractions slowed down.....how much longer do u ladies think it could be? Btw I did nothing to induce.....this just all happened on its own.

I had similar situation. 37 weeks I was sent home at 3 cm and 100 percent effaced. I had contractions off and on after that, gave birth at 39 weeks 6 days.  After I was sent home I tried everything. So it can be a while... I went from 0 cm to 3 in about 12 hrs as ihad been seen by my only the day before... So for you, it could be anytime or it could be longer like in my case
