    ok, so went to doc this morning and was told i am now 2 CM and cervix is open. I know everyone is different, but my due date is 11/1, is it possible i will make it to that date? i do not have contractions or anything, so curious about how long it takes after reaching 2 CM to have the baby? :baby:

    getting nervous now!!

    From what I've been told by friends and family who've had kids is that you can be at 2cm for weeks.

    Yup, apparently you can be up to 3cm for quite some time, which is why they don't say you're in active labour until you're 4cm.

    no way to tell really, but you should be fine. with DD i was walking around at just under 4cm for a week or so before my water broke at 36+6. I'm just about 34 weeks with this baby and have done a check on myself and Im 2-3cm now.

    It really depends on your body and your history.

    With both my kids by 33-34 weeks I have been 2-3 cm and 50% effaced . With my fort he was born at 36 weeks so this time since I'm having contractions the doctor doesn't expect me to make it to my due date

    Lots of people sit at 2-3 cm for weeks and have nothing happen though
