2 Dilated 75% effaced
beccadita80 posted:
I am 37 weeks 3 days and just had my appointment yesterday. They told me I'm a sure 2 and 75% effaced. This would explain why I have been having pee accidents here and there. I go all the time but if I sneeze hard or laugh to hard it happens. :-( Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had an idea if I'd go early or not becasue of my progress so far?? Thanks

Right there with you. I am due 2 days after you and on Wed i was 1 cm and 50%effaced. Not sure if this means any thing but my Dr. didn't say baby would be here sooner. All she said was she would like to see me wait another 2 weeks which would be the week before my EDD and that it is good things are progressing and i am not all locked up down there. My dr is so funny i love her so much.

i was at 2 cm and 75% with DS for 3 weeks and had him at 38 weeks 5 days. Women can walk around like that for weeks before actual labor. Its very frustrating knowing when your dialted and its not doing anything lol

Mena75 replied to sam_bam23's response:
From my experience they normally don't check until 36 weeks. It perfectly normal though to sneeze or cough at 33 weeks and have an accident. When I was 33 weeks I had a bad cough..had to wear a pad to catch all the accidents. lol

I started progressing at 35 weeks and by 38 weeks I was 3 1/2cm and 50%, and I still didn't go into labor until the day after my due date. I would have rather not been checked at all to tell you the truth and next baby I probably won't be checked until 39 weeks, by my choice. It really frustrated me to know I was progressing, but nothing was happening, it was def new mom jitters! So you could deliver early or go past your due date.
