37+5 and 2cm dilated

FTM, got my induction scheduled on 25th Aug. Had a cervix check yesterday and doc said I am 2cm dilated. Baby is still not very low. Will be induced when I am 38+3. Any tips ladies to be note dilated before that date. Reason for induction baby has been on the lower percentile, at 37 weeks he was 16th(IUGR)and my bp was raising around 85( startwd to raise at 36 weeks)but after some medication its below 82. Any one dilated to 2cm before delivery/induction and had a smooth delivery process? How many hrs it took for you to u progress to 10cm when u were already 2cm dilated? super nervous😐
