How fast did you dilate?

I am currently 35+2 with my second child (a boy). I am dilated 1cm with a soft cervix. I know that this isn’t a huge sign of labor as it can be days or weeks until then. But I feel so much pressure and wonder how fast I am going to dilate further. Just curious to see any other similar experiences. Please post anon

With each pregnancy you’ll feel more of the pressure. Pressure doesn’t mean dilation. With my second I was at a 2 for weeks and then out of nowhere she broke my water on her own. I’m pregnant with my 5th… 37+3 and she’s taking her good old time, so much pressure and she’s super low but thats about it.

My second was the fastest of all mine, but my third I was a one for almost two weeks!! I had a lot of pressure and my hips were so soft I could hardly stand but when I went to have her it took forever hahaha! So I think it’s a crap shoot lol :joy:!

I was 3cm from 29 weeks to 35 weeks My son was delivered by emergency section
I had a lot of pressure… 

I dilated 1 a month till the end
