i was 3 cm for a long time but my water broke before contractions even started. but as soon as 4cm a half hour later i was 9cm and pushing 15 min later my daughter was born. i had no epridual. so i think you will have your baby really soon! good luck!!

I got induced at 39 weeks, cause i was in well that kind of labor for almost 2 weeks. So i yelled at my doctor and told them to get him out of me.

Pretty much labor is a waiting game towards the end.

I know how impatient you can get towards the end but with your first your very likely to go over due.

Hopefully your baby will come soon since you're 39 weeks pregnant and 4cm dilated! I was 3 cm 70 thinned for almost 2 weeks. The baby came a day before my due date! Congrats and good luck! I hope he comes soon!
