  • what is your question??

    if you start going into labor too soon they can stop that and more than likely will.......

  • Maybe your doctor can do a cerclage to keep you from dialating any more.

  • Congrats on the girl but as far as the dilating goes...I agree with amber walshak. I don't think that is normal. Are you sure you don't have an incompetent cervix?

  • anon is right ,my sil had to have her cervix stitched until the baby was born. Good luck.

  • I just wanted to know if anyone else has found out if they were dialated this soon! I'm worried about it. The doctor last night said its normal if you have had more than one pregnancy but I worried because I have had two miscarriages in the past.

  • I would do a little research,on your own,I'm not saying your DR is wrong,but since you have already had two miscarriages,which this problem maybe the reason for them.I have'nt heard of dialating that early at all,but I don't know.

  • I know this girl who has 4 kids now and is a small girl and her babies were all born early due to when she would get like 5mths or more she'd start contracting and then dialate some. They put her on bed rest. All her babies were born about 33-35weeks pregnant. My husband's brother's ex wife had to be stiched up with her second baby because she had problems carrying babies, like basically holding them in.
