1 cm dilated at 27 weeks- looking for success stories
« on: April 10, 2018 at 09:07 PM »
Hello,

I was treated for preterm labor at 27 weeks and was 1 cm dilated when I went in to triage. I was discharged from the hospital after 4 days since my cervix was stable at 1 cm and I wasn't having contractions. I am now on bed rest at home. How long is it possible to stay dilated? I'm hoping to get to at least 34 weeks!

Thank you!

Angela

Hi, Wren.

How is everything going? I think your message may have been bumped down before people had a chance to see it. Speaking of "bumps" I think you have a very good chance of cooking' for many more weeks! I've seen women stay at 1 cm dilated for many months, and even women at 2 or 3 stay that way for a month or more. Of course, it's still scary and stressful when everything isn't going as you hoped.

Are you on any medications to calm the contractions, or have they calmed on their own this past week? When is your next OB appointment? Do you have other children?

Postive thoughts coming your way!  :D
