  • I think it varies for every woman I never got braxton hicks or if I did I didn't know it I didn't even dilate til I was in labor even then it took a long when I was first checked I was like 1 1/2 to 2 and then it took 30 more hours to get to ten!

  • It can take hours or weeks. I was dilated a 1/2 cm at 30 weeks and I delivered on my due date. Good luck.
