Just got checked today. I'm about 1 cm, but cervix is very thick at 36 weeks.

Trin-is that from princess bride???

I got checked 2 weeks ago and there were no numbers discussed-just an all clear to go away for the weekend. I go in tomorrow, and this time I want digits-I mean if your going in till your elbow anyway, and they won't buy me a drink first, I need something more than 'nope' I mean obviously I have no baby in my arms-but where am I??? Let me know even some of the work is already done!

I just found out today I am a 'fingertip' (that's 1 cm, right?) and very soft, but not effaced. Not engaged-he popped up right as I went into the room-no commitment from that little guy yet.

Popping in from Feb 08, b/c it looks like I'm going to have a March babe....and it's depressing seeing all the "my babe is here!" threads there

Anyway, I'm 40+4 and have been 2 cm for 4 wks. It's depressing. Monday, he said I was "maybe 2.5," but really soft and he could feel the baby's head. It depresses the hell out of me to see you mamas who are 4 cm. I should stop reading these threads all together

36 weeks -1 station and 1 centimeter. She said my cervix is still very posterior, but this is my first birth where I have dialated at all before going into labor. I am expecting a fast labor this time. last time I think it was only 2 hours of hard labor 4-10 and pushing included.

I am due March 7th and was told that I am 50 percent effaced and 1-2 centimeters dilated. I don't have much faith in the numbers though. I think that I will be late this time around too...

I put very little faith in the #'s except maybe that they make labour faster. I have walked around with baby at 0 station and dilated 3-4 100 effaced for a month and still was induced. This time I am 2cm barely and about 60% and have my induction in a week. I am working on getting more dilated by having sex, drinking RRL tea and walking when I can. I am an early March mama and I am sad reading all the baby is here threads in the Feb DDC and the ones popping up here. LOL.

My mother reports that when she was pregnant with me, they told her she was 3 cm at 37 weeks.
And then she stayed that way for another SIX weeks, until they induced.

Me , him , and the two most beautiful little lovey girls in the world: 3/08 and 1/10. Planning our escape from the treadmill!

I believe it! (On the other hand, when I tell people I've been 2 cm. for 4 wks, they look at me like I'm either lying or stupid.)

With my 4th baby, I was 5cm and not in labor for several days, so I don't put much stock into the numbers anyways.

But on the other hand, I know what people mean about wanting to see some of the work of labor is already accomplished. Sara
