I wasn't dilated at 36,37,38,39 or 40 weeks. I'm 41 weeks today and find out if I've finally made progress on Friday. If not my induction date will be august 1 @ 42 weeks. My doctor won't allow me togo any further than that.
I don't quite understand why your doctor is worried about you not having contractions when you are still preterm anyways, but it's entirely possible that you have been having braxton hicks without noticing because it's easy to mistake those for baby rolling/switching positions. I can't help with your question because my doctor won't check for dilation until my due date, you still have time to dilate.
With my first son i was dialated at a 1 for like 5 weeks but out of no where on his due date i went into full blown labor so there is hope frm going from nothing to something
On 7/19 my cervix was hard and in the back still. On 7/20 it was soft and the outer part was open but the inside still closed and today 7/24 i am 1.5cm dialated :) im 36+2. Hope that helps. I was in triage on the 19th and 20th due to contractions in case you wondered how i knew :)
Thanks Ladies! It gives me a little hope.
At 35 36 and 37 I was at zero im 38w2d and came to hospital today being 3 cm so there's hope momma.
