Brownish discharge before going into labor. Is my cervix dilated enough for delivery?

for the last week I ve had an increased brown/pink discharge . when I went to the doctors on wednesday of last week my docter told me that I was 2 1/2 cm dilated and that I was somewhere between 75 and 80% effaced. Today when I went to labor and delivery and they checked my cervix the doctor said I was 3 cm and thick. What exactly does that mean?

Hi, Meggalways.
Thanks for query.
Dilation of cervix and effacement is there, it indicates that labor process is started andwithin short time you may deliver.
You have not mentioned regarding labor pain.
I think pain also might be there.
Ok and bye.
