  • You can be dilated at 1 or 2 or more for WEEKS and not go into labor. There's really no way to tell. Some people walk around at 3 for weeks (especially if it's not their first baby) and others go from not dialating at all to pushing out a baby in a matter of hours. Good luck. I wouldnt worry about it at this point unless you start feeling like you're going into preterm labor.

  • i really wish the dr's wouldn't do so much checking, it really doesn't mean anything, it just gives you stuff to worry about. mentally, prepare for your baby to come on time. you don't want an early baby!

  • There is no way to tell, you can walk around a couple of cm dilated for many many weeks before labor but you can also go from 0 to 10 cm in a couple of hours. Being x cm dilated is not an indication of anything, its basically useless information.
