Ive been having contractions since yesterday. Which i have been doing this for a month now, contractions for 2 days straight then none for 3 days. Every week i go to my drs appointment i am a cm more dilated than i was the week before. I am now 4cm. I went to my drs apt today and she checked me & told me i was a good 4 cm dilated im 50% effaced and she said she felt the babys head and actually moved it but the head was not engaged (obviously bc she was able to move it). She said labor is very near and expects a baby within 2 days. I am pregnant with number 4 and i am still having contractions but nothing real real painful and they arent regular. Ive just always heard @ 4 cm dilated u are n labor and should b at the hospital? Im a lil confused. With my others i had very very quick labors (6hrs, 5hrs, & 4hrs) but never pre dilated to 4. 3cm yes but not 4. She said i was a good 4 almost 5cm. Im just wondering y im not in the hospital gettn ready to deliver. I am 38wks preg by the way. The dr wants to induce next week but says i will deliver before then.
My irregular contractions are changing my cervix... every week im one cm more dilated. The dr says the contractions im having are dilating me. They just arent regular. I am 4 cm now almost 5. Last wk i was almost 4 wk before that i was 2 and week before that i was half a cm.16 hours agoOh & dont know if this matters but lost my mucus plug 3 weeks ago. How soon do u think i could have this baby? I am 38 wks and 2 days prego.
I was 4 cm dilated for two weeks, then went to an appt at 36 weeks 6 days and was 5, almost 6 cm. I went to the hospital at 37 weeks 1 day and had my daughter the next day. The Dr said that even though I wasn't technically in active labor, he was keeping me because if my water broke at home it would likely be too late to get to the hospital.
id go to the hospital cause with my first, i was induced at 39 weeks at noon that day they started the cervidil at 1 i was having hard contractions by 11 the next day my water broke i was 3cm, by 3pm the same day i was 4cm an hour later she was out lol, and that was with my first with this being ur 4th buddy id demand to be in the hospital
