  • anon, 9:42, i was thinking the same thing. Why make a comment like it doesn't matter. I have always wondered your question. I personally just feelmore comfortable knowing if i am dialted or not. Weather or not it means anything or not. It just eases my mind to know.

  • The way I knew I was dilating was I couldn't sit straight down on my but. I had to sit on a angle.. Come to find out that I was 5 cm dilated by the time I went to the doctor to see what was up.

  • I don't know but it doesn't matter if you are dilated or not. I don't get checked at all during pregnancy and with my last i didn't get checked at all (not even during labor), the checks are useless and being dilated or not is not an indication of when labor will start at all.
