Hello!!! Im 38 weeks pregnant and today the doctor said I am 1 cm dialated and that my cervix is very thin an soft!! What does that mean?? This is my first pregnancy and I dont know what to expect! Does that mean something or nothing?? Could I go to labor before the 2 weeks I have left??
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
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
