Thanks Asha. It's of much help. One question - can I sleep on my back during night or should I have to continue left or right side sleep?

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hi deepika,,
If it is first pregnancy, 1cms along with pain contractions then you may take one to three days for progressing, if no pain then it will take more time up to a week.. to progress fast get regular brisk walks, squats and sleep on right or left lateral side.. keep yourself hydrated and empty the urges as soon as you feel to pee or poo.. dont suppress it.. meanwhile keep an eye on fetal movements.. and if you start leaking or bleeding then visit your doctor..

Deepika Titus

Thanks a lot Dr. Shilpitha.

Hey deepika - left side always better. If u are uncomfy change the side.

I see something called mucus plug in Internet. Can the cervix get dilated even if that plug is not removed? I didnot notice anything like that till now.

Amruta Naik

Hi Deepika, mucus plug can go unnoticed during urination or may be during normal discharge. Not sure about how cervix dilation is related to that.

All the best Deepika..☺️☺️

All the best deepika👍👍

My mucus plug discharged today. 50% effacement with 1cm dilated cervix. Started to have light contraction. My doc asked me to get admitted in hospital. Now I don't have any pain. But in hospital. Keep me in your prayers.

Deepika Titus

Today 2 fingers dilated (2.5cm). Still doctor asked me to wait...
