35+5 weeks 2cm dilated


Had pains all of yesterday so rang the assessment suite just to get some advice, they told me to come in and monitored me for 2 hours as I had high protein in urine and high bp. Said they would keep me in for a week and keep an eye (I was gutted!) Then they did an examination and I was 2cm dilated in early labour. Got transferred to delivery suite where I was having strong contractions and moved on to antenatal ward when these eased off at 2am. They’re giving my steroids for baby to help progress his lungs but are letting me home as contractions have decreased in frequency and duration. They said mucus plug can come away and still have a few more weeks left cooking away in there, I really hope so. Anyone else been dilated then had baby weeks later? I know it could happen any time just interested x
