  • well yes but you risk the chances of infection so why would you risked it. besides it doens matter iwas 4 cm at 28 wks i had dd at 38. iwas 3 cm at 32 wks i had ds at 37. dialtaion doesnt indicate if you are going to go into labor soon

  • yes, you can feel your cervix but it's not advised to do so unless you are a medical professional as it may cause pre-term labor to start.

  • in the back of your uterus at the top, you will feel a cone like shape...in the middle of it will be a hole...that is the cervical opening  see the chart here

  • i wouldn't do it. there is really no reason to. knowing how dilated you are will not help you know when you will go into labor. it could be weeks, or tomorrow, whether you are dilated to 4 cm, or zero. good luck :)

  • So, could you be 9cm, and not go into labor for a long period of time?
