I was dialted to 1 somewhere around 25 weeks and went on to deliver at 40 weeks. Sounds like your just getting an early start. It could be anytime from now untill 2 weeks past your due date. Maybe you will get lucky like me. I dialated to a 5 before I went tinto labor. My labor went very fast because of it:)

You can stay dilated at 1 cm for a long time.  It all depends, there is no way to tell.  I was 1 cm for weeks and still had to be induced at 41 weeks.  Good luck.

With my first at my 37 wk appt I was  not even dilated at all then wham the next day I was in labor and I was already 3-4 cm.  So, like the other ladies said it can happen quickly or very slowly.  It all depends on when your little one is ready to come.  I am sure your doctor will keep a close eye on the situation.  

I would just make sure in the next week or so you have everything ready to go, just in case. It is always better to be on the safe then under prepared.

Good luck!
