Re: How long does it take to dilate?
Im 38w6d today....at 36w I was 2cm dialated and 50% effaced. Last week at my 38w appt I was 3cm dialated and 70% effaced.....and have sat dormant since.
With my other 2 I didnt really dialate a whole lot until I actually went into true labor. DS #1 I labored start to finish for 5 1/2 hours and with DS #2 I labored start to finish for 6 hours.....they say after the first one the tendency is to go faster and that with the first it could take several hours. Soooooo I guess it varies depending on each pregnant mom. Sorry I wasnt any help - it does sound like things have started to move along for you tho!!
