I am 34 weeks and 3 days, and after reading this I decided to go to the hosp lol and I too am 1cm dilated...My doctor said it isn't uncommon to stay that way for a couple weeks but some people go into labor right away...I was having contractions when I was in the hospital and when I came home but they've stopped today. I wish you luck lol I want to see this baby :( I am hoping I dont have to wait too long...Lol.

that is most likely not your vagina, but actually your cervix. It could be effacing or dilating a bit more. It's very common and normal once you hit this stage. =)

I am 38 weeks pregnant and I was having contractions for 2 days straight so I went to the hospital and I was 1 cm dialated. They had me on monitors for about 5 hours and had me hooked up to fluids. I did not dialate anymore so they sent me home. Then once I got home which was 2 days ago I have not had anymore contractions..Apparently it's just our bodies still preparing for everything..Good luck to all of you=) tiffany

I am 37 weeks, and also dialated to 1 cm. I went back to doc 4 days later and he said I have stayed the same. Anyone have any ideas on how to move this along! I am so miserable and this is my 4th. Thanks in advance!

Well doc enduced me at 38 weeks, so I guess I was ready. Funny thing is I was already having steady contractions the day I went in for enduction. I am proud to say I had a healthy 7lb 8oz baby girl, on Dec.5th. Maddison Ann. Good luck to all Razz
