  • No, I don't see a point in cervix checks~

    IF they "need" to be done or I am curious then I would...

  • I have, only once. It was because I had been in labor for less then one hour and could not believe I needed to push already. I just had to find out if I was really ready. Yup, I was! LOL

  • Wow, that's pretty fast dilating! But it does happen. I have a friend who went from 4 to 10 in a matter of 30 seconds, and another who went from contractions 10 minutes apart to holding a baby in 45 minutes, so ya never know. I say go with the urge to push. Your body will tell you when you're ready.
