whats taking so long
An_217241 posted:
I turned 37 weeks last wednesday and the Dr. told me that i was 4 centimeters dialated and 70% effaced. This is my 3rd child and 4th pregnancy why is she taking so long to come down? Is there something I can do besides walking I do that already?

i would just be patient thats what ive learned. i am 40 weeks and 2 days and i am gettn really impatient, so... i am 3 dialated and not effaced. i dnt understand that lol but here i am! but i have heard jumping jacks or eating lots of pinapple helps ur cervix thin. good luck!
