  • Nothing. They would let you go home, and see if you have dilated anymore at your next appointment.

  • Nothing. Women walk around dilated much more than that for weeks at a time. That is why VE's are so pointless. They tell you nothing. You can be dilated to a 4 for weeks or you can be closed shut and have a baby 2 hours later. All they do is introduce bacteria and risk your membranes being ruptured prematurely. Tell your OB, no more VE's!

  • They Most Likely Will Send You Home. Unless You Are In Pain.
