    I walked around at a 1cm and 50-75% effaced for at least 2 weeks before going into labor with each of them.

    I was 34+5 when my waters broke with my 1st, she was born the next day. The day before my waters broke, cervix was closed and there was no mention about effacement.

    With my 2nd and 3rd both were born during the 39th week and I was 1cm and 50%effaced around 35 weeks for both. I was 3 and then 4 cm dilated with about 80%effaced at my 39 week appts for both 2nd and 3rd.

    So it can happen quickly or slowly :) best wishes I know the end can be miserable.
