how soon think I will go into labor? or know if dilating more?

I have had 3 preemies. 6 kids total.

I am a high risk preg.

I saw ob and all was normal.

2 weeks later I saw fetal medicine doctor was 50%effaced. no dilation.

3 days later small uti, then 3 days after that so a week from finding I was effaced. I went to ob and found I dilated now to 1 1/2. I go back to fetal med doc this Thursday 2 days then ob Monday.

I been cramping how do I know if I maybe dilated more? and how soon think I maybe progress to active labor?

    I don't know, what does your doctor say?

    How far along are you? I stayed 3 cm for 3 weeks with one, with another was 0% effaced or not dilated and had her the next day. With my other I was 4 cm when they checked me and didn’t have her until almost a week later. There’s no reason to check for dilation as it’s not an indication that the baby will coming any time soon.

    So -- you are asking random strangers to diagnose your medical condition when you clearly have several specialists monitoring you and your pregnancy?
