I dont know if it does or not, sorry im not more helpful. Apparently people have been 1cm for a while before, but ill leave that to those with experience to explain. I suppose it means 1 less cm to go through during labour

Just wondering how you found out? Did you MW do an internal? Was it for a specific reason or just a regular checkup?

I was in the hospital because of not feeling well. Their machine was picking up contractions...but far apart and irregular. They also said I was 1 cm. They sent me home and told me to go back if the contractions get closer together or stronger....

Did your mw mention how effaced you are? Or how low the baby's head is? If its your 1st baby, 1 cm could mean the start of something. The more babies you've had the more dialated you can be for weeks before actual labour hits With my last pg I was 4 cm for a while, got to 5cm, then they finally decided to break my water to see if it would get things going. Right now Im 3 cm and almost fully effaced, and have been for at least a week now. Its so hard to know when labour will start just going by how dialated you are. My dr even said I woulda had my lo by thursday, and we're now saturday. So even the professionals dont even know.

All I can suggest is lots of walking, bouncing on a ball, all that stuff to try and get it started. I hope for you tho it means you will have your lol soon, and not go overdue!!

It's it's your first, it could mean you haven't got long to go....but saying that, I know of folk who have been 1cm dilated for weeks. It depends on lots of things. Nothing can be certain. Least it's 1 cm less for you now
