She's already 1cm dilated and I am SO jealous! - Page 2

post #21 of 23
Don't be jealous ... it's mentally hard to walk around dialated for *weeks* on end. There's "advantages" to either one... the grass may seem greener and all that.

I agree it can be harder to walk around knowing you're dilated because you think it means something. Especially if the doc makes a careless comment about going early and instead you're still pg on your duedate. I've known women who were actually as far as 7cm for weeks before they were finally induced. 1cm at 37 weeks means nothing about when she'll go into labor or how successful an induction on her duedate (if she's still pg then) would be.

well I was 1 cm at 38 weeks and went to 42 weeks and had a c-sec anyway, so it doesnt mean a thing really.
