thinned out = effaced.
What is effacement?

Effacement is the process by which the cervix prepares for delivery. After the baby has engaged in the pelvis, it gradually drops closer to the cervix; the cervix gradually softens, shortens and becomes thinner. You may hear phrases like "ripens," or "cervical thinning" which refer to effacement.
How is effacement measured?

Effacement is measured in percentages. For example, your health care provider may tell you that you are effaced 50%, which means you are half way to being completely effaced. When you are 100% effaced or completely effaced, your cervix is paper-thin and labor is right around the corner.
How will I know if and when I am effaced?

In your final weeks of pregnancy your health care provider will routinely check for effacement, and as soon as you arrive at your birth location, you will be checked for effacement. If you are a first time mom, your cervix will usually efface before it dilates. If you are a second time mom, your cervix will usually dilate before effacement.

ALright, i was contracting 3 minutes apart and hurtin, so went to the doctors and they checked me again...not quite 4cm yet...they hooked me up to an IV which calmed my contractions down and sent me home! They said I was dehydrated, that's what was causing the contractions. I am so mad. I am going to walk everywhere today in hopes of dilating more! I was so mentally prepared to be bring home a baby this weekend...I guess I still might but who knows. I was so tired after all the days events yesterday I just wanted to get home and sleep. We will see what today brings...
