  • You probably are and dont realize it. Does you stomach ever get hard? Thats a contraction. They dont always hurt but your body is working which is why you are dilating.

  • I was dialated to 3 for three weeks with my first before my water broke. Still didn't have contractions for 30 after. How far along are you?

  • Yeah I was dilated to 3 - 4 for about 2 weeks. I was induced at 40 weeks 3 days. Just hold on dude, you'll have your baby before you know it.

  • Mom it is normal, dont worry you will go in labor when your body and baby are ready

  • When I was dialated at 7 I wasn't having contractions (although I was having TERRIBLE back labor) - you're fine .. it will happen sooner than you know
