  • I think I was 3cm when my doctor sent me to the hospital. It took me another day to get to 6cm, and then she broke my water. My birth experience was NOT what I had wanted. Stupid VA and their anti-homebirth laws.

  • I don't remember when I started dilating, but I was actually 6cm for my last 6weeks... I know I started before that, but no idea when or how long.

  • Don't know as I refused internal checks. When I got there I was about 5 cm with both though.

  • I was 2 cm for a couple days with my son, 4cm when I arrived at he hospital. With my dd I didn't start dilating until I was in labor, only 2 cm by the time I got to the hospital. Then had her 5 hours later.

  • My doctor said I just popped them out like a mother cat. Back in the 60's, doctors didn't tell you too much.
