I just got back from the doctor's, he said my cervix is long and closed... laat week it was open about the size of a fingertip. Doctor said if nothing happens in the next 2 weeks then I will have to be induced. I pray this baby comes on his own!!

2 weeks is a lot of time, especially at the end of a pregnancy. There's still hope

Yep. A cervix can change overnight. It all depends on baby. Hope everything gets going for you soon.

Certainly can change quickly. I was "long and closed" two days before having my first. And when I finally showed up at the hospital, less than 48 hours later, I was 8cm!

Don't get discouraged! It can happen in literally a minute that you go from "no time soon" to "it's time!" Hoping baby decides to make his appearance soon

also, i was effacing and dilating weeks before i was due, and the day i went into labor (before my membrane sweep) i was 100% effaced and 3.5 cm dilated.... and stayed that way, even 20+ hours after labor had started (and i was having contractions every 1-2 minutes). the doctor broke my water and that got things moving pretty quick.

I was long and closed at my last appointment for my first daughter and started having contractions about four hours after that appointment and had her two days later.

For this baby, my water broke and I stayed at a 1 for hours.

I have heard that can happen too. My doctor says he is not surprised that I am not progressing yet because this is my first baby. I have heard you can be dilated for weeks of it can happen very quickly. My Mom is convinced now that I will be like her because she never dilated beyond 3 cm...she had to have a c section. Until doctors tell me that is necessary, I am not even going to think of that. What ever happens happens. :-)
