  • I don't think that laying down affects whether or not you dialate.

  • Of course you can. Its something our bodies do naturally and it doesnt matter if were active or not. Of course if you wanted to speed things up then you could go for a walk, have sex etc. People on bedrest dilate on their own all the time.

  • absolutely.. don't you lay in a hospital bed while your in labor?? :) you dialate then! When you dialate its the same idea as bieng in labor, your in early labor.. your body is preparing for the baby to come :)
