Dilated and effaced?

Hello. My due date is June 6th. I had my 36 week appt this past Tuesday. My Dr did a cervical check. I'm 4cm dilated and 80% effaced. This is my second child. I was induced with my first at 41wks and was 3cm dilated. Anyone else was or is dilated and effaced this far already? How long did it take you go into labor? Thanks

At 36 weeks I was 2 cm dilated and 30 percent thinned now as of Friday I'm 37 weeks and 3 and a half cm 50 percent thinned my doctor said she would not be surprised if I went into labor before this next Friday but she also said there's a possibility I could just stay there until my due date this is my second I'd say your most likely going to have that baby soon like I m thinking I will lol

This Monday I was exactly 36 weeks and 1cm dialate and 80% effaced. I also lost my mucus plug the day after the pelvic exam. I'm totally not ready for the baby yet (I thought I had 4 more weeks!), so now we're scrambling to put the nursery together and get everything done.
