Is there..?

Is there any way to tell if your cervix is starting to dilate? I know the doctor will check you to see how many cm dilated you are...but are there any signs that you may notice that indicate your cervix is thinning?

  • there really isn't a way to tell unless your dr or someone else (i wouldn't let anyone who doesn't know what they are doing) check it. if your haveing bracton hicks it should be thinning cause thats their job. they get your body ready for labor all pregnancy.

  • No, you can't tell by yourself. Your dr should be able to tell you.
