Is this your first? It certainly sounds like things could happen for you soon - from what I know, most women aren’t generally more than 1-2cm before going into labour.
I was in labour 13 hours and had only progressed to 3-4cm haha, so I feel like you have a good head start at least .

Actually it’s my 2nd but I was induced with my first child, so I never got the opportunity to dilate or go into labor on my own. I really wanna have a baby this week lol. I love the kid but I don’t love being pregnant ��

I was only 1cm at 40+4, so I'd say you're off to a good start!

Ha it didn't really matter anyway, labor went really fast for a 1st time once it started. My friend was 1cm dilated at her last appt and had the baby 12 hours later! So I don't think it matters too much anyway

Fast labor sounds really nice right now.. and yes I suppose I guess it all depends on when baby is ready to come 😂

Oh, I would say your off to a good start. I only got to 1cm dilated around 41 weeks, had DS at 41w 4d. On the day I had him I went in and was 1cm Thursday Morning, then I had him Friday morning at 9:33am. It could literally happen anytime!
But my SIL was 5cm dilated and had broken waters, had my niece 2-3 days later.
Good luck momma!
