Re: Anyone stay 3-4cms for a while?

I was at 4cm for one full week after my labor stalled with DS.

I wandered around at 3-4cm for 6 weeks. It was a short labor.

I wasn't dilated at all at 36wks. At 37wks I was 3-4cm and contracting every 2mins for 8hrs. At 40wks I was induced and still 4cm

I also had no contractions with #3 until pitocin was started and they broke my water.

Considering how fast #2 birth was (20 min from first this is a real contraction to birth) I am guessing i was walking around pretty far dialated for awhile with that one also and no contractions. Didn't get checked at my 36 week appointment.

I've heard of a lot of people who stay pregnant much longer, but for all 3 of mine that was my warning that the baby was coming soon. I went into labor within 48 hours of being checked at 3-4 (was 2-3 the week before) with all 3 of my kids.

I was 4cm for about a month with my youngest 2 but they were born at 35 and 34 weeks. My concern is how fast you changed. My was a gradual change about a cm a week. The thing that helped me was that my cervix was still long so no effacement was happening. Good Luck
