  • you can be dialated for up to a month before you have your kid so i wouldnt worry about it

  • It took me 3 to get from 2 cm to 3. you can stay dilated for a month or more. They say with each child it is quicker but yes it can take you a week to get past one or two cm.

  • yes, with more children you have the quicker you go. be paying attention to those braxton hicks and if they seem more extreme and frequent then labor is knocking on your door!
