It really doesn't mean anything. You could be 3cm dilated for weeks and not go into labour. You could also be exactly 0cm dilated and have your baby a few hours later.

They don't perform this test in NZ for the exact reason that it doesn't tell you anything about anything.

It's not the best way to predict labour ! My DS I went in to be checked on the afternoon at exactly 40wk and was 3-4 with bulging membranes . Due to reduced placental function I was induced the next day by AROM . Went straight into established labour baby arrived 4.5hr later . Before my waters were broken I hadn't even had a BH or a even the tiniest show. . After they broke my water I went from 4cm to 10cm in just over two hours

Sounds like a good start for sure. If your dr sweeps, get a sweep, have sex to get the semen's prostaglandins to help dilate and that babe should be here soon!
