Currently 38 weeks and 6 days. I went from 2 cm to 4 cm in 6 days. I have been 4cm dilated and about 90% effaced for 3 days now. I lost my mucus plug yesterday morning. I don’t feel any contractions and my water hasn’t broken. Could I go into labor soon or will I still most likely make it to my due date? I’ve tried walking and drinking pineapple juice to help but it isn’t working!
At this point in your pregnancy, you are likely visiting your physician quite frequently. Knowing when your labor will progress is difficult to determine, but frequent check-ins with your doctor should occur since you are holding at 4 cm dilation. If this is not your first pregnancy, it is not uncommon to be 3-4 cm dilated for a while before active labor sets in.
