  • Yes you can. Labor is supposed to cause dialation. If you fail to progress and baby is not dealing well with the contractions you end up with a c-section.

  • if you're asking if you can have contractions and go into labor i think you would know. the pain is terrible. there was a girl at school who thought she was in labor bc she lost her mucus plug, the er sent her home laughing bc she thought she was in labor but couldn't feel her contractions, honey you're going to feel those!

  • Sometimes you cant feel the contractions at first, but trust me you will feel them yes you can not dialate in labor. I was in hard labor for 37 hours and didnt dilate past 7.5-8cm and ended up with a c section. Its called failure to progress and happens the most with inductions.
