It really could be any time. It all depends on your body. You could go in tonight; or you could go in a week from now.

The stretch & sweep worked both times for me, albeit - I was already 1cm dilated with my daughter and 9 days over and 2cm dilated with my son and 8 days over.. I went into labour 4hrs later both times.. With my son, I was having mild contractions, then my midwife give me a stretch & sweep and said I was 2cm and she could feel his head.. It just helped progress my labour as I was in early labour beforehand.. I bounced on my birth ball for a few hours and had him 6hrs later.. If your body and baby are ready, it WILL work.. Good luck :-) ..

well 3cm is just the beginning, if this is your first then it could be hours yet, as soon as it gets a little further things will go ALOT quicker, but sorry there is not way of telling. but if this is not your first, then it should be quicker than your last child. congratulations x

Dilation isn't an indicator. People can be 3cm for weeks until labor actually starts.
