Means the baby's head has been pushing down on your cervix n now its thin so the rest is just waiting for contractions to push the baby out by dialating your cervix. Basically your ready. Doesn't mean you'll go right away n also could go over its whenever baby decides to release the hormone for your body to start real contractions

I'm 32 weeks and 1cm dilated and cervix is soft, dr wasn't concerned so I guess it's all just a waiting game. Good luck being your 38 weeks hope you don't have to wait too long

My doctor said the same thing to me a week ago... I think it's a sign things are moving in the right direction. Good luck hon! Hopefully not too much longer x

Walk! I went in for my appt Monday and was 1 cm and 50% thinned. My dr said for me to start walking if i want this baby out by his due date. So I've started walking at least 2 miles a day. Since then I've lost my mucous plug and had some contractions just waiting for them to be more regular now

No, I was dilated 1 cm the entire last month and went a week overdue so it doesn't necessarily mean soon but you never know.
