I'm due September 23rd but have went into preterm labor twice now. He had me on medication to stop things. I was dialated to 2.5 since 34 weeks.today I got checked & was 3 cm & 80% effaced. He took me of the meds & said I can deliver any time.
Unfortunately though, we could stay dilated at 1.5cm for weeks lol it doesn't necessarily mean that we will go into labor early. Some women will be dilated to a 4-5 for weeks and don't progress further until after their due date, while other women can have no dilation at all and then within a day, they go into labor and dilate fully and give birth. I hate that we get teased with numbers when they don't really imply anything!
I'm due Sept 22nd and I also am dilated 1.5cm and have had some thinning!! Woohooo we are almost to the end!
