  • You can know by having your cervix checked (doctor/midwife/nurse/you).
    But it doesn't give any useful information and could introduce bacteria...
    Do you have a reason why you feel you'd like to know?

  • Have someone check. But there's really no point. With my first, I was dilated to 1 cm for 2-3 weeks and had no labor before my scheduled C-section at 39 weeks. With my second, I didn't dilate at all until just before I went into labor (I was at "maybe a 1" at my appoinment 3 days beforehand). So it really doesn't matter if you're dilated or not until you're actually in labor.
