I was 4 cm and 100% effaced for 12 days with my second, and I was a fingertip dilated and 50% for 3 days before I had a 75 minute labor.

Relaly, thre's not a great indicator except for losing your plug with your first baby as to when youll go into labor. Generally you lose your plug when youre dilated to between 1 and 2 cm, and many first time moms do not dilated at all till just before baby comes.
