My friend was dialated to a 4 already when labor began and her labor was 9 hours start to finish. The doctor said that was really good for a first time mom since the average first time mom take 12-14 hours to deliver.
In her second pregnancy she was only dialated 1 cm when labor began and her labor took longer.
I was dialated to only a "finger tip" when labor began and I was in labor for 27 hours.
This time I'm already dialated 1 cm and still have some time to go so I was just wondering if it COULD make labor shorter.
---I know nothing is a guarentee and all women are different but I am just wondering if there is any significance to how much a women is dialated before labor---
