  • Nope. It will happen when your body is ready. Not all women dilate over a period of weeks. Some women do it all at once. I dilated from a 1 to a 10 in under 2 hours.

  • I wouldn't be. I was dialted at 30 weeks with both my pregnancies and they were both still soo late that I had to be induced.

  • Not at all, I didn't start dilating until two days before my delivery.

  • No..being dilated before labor is irrelevant, that is one of the reasons why many women do not get checked at all. You can go from 0 to 10 cm in a couple of hours but you can also walk around a couple of cm dilated for many weeks before labor.
