I'm 39 weeks and haven't dilated or effaced at all. I realize this is the case with a lot of first time mothers, But a lot of people I know started dilating at 35 weeks or so and showed many signs that labor was near, I'm not having very many, I ask my doctor if it's normal, but he's always very vague and in a hurry and never really gives me a good answer on anything.
How far along were you when you started to dilate with your first child?
He told me you can not have an induction without being dilated at all, if that's the case you have to have some other thing done that helps you dilate, Has anyone had this?
