  • First of all, I would NOT recommend checking yourself. You can cause a severe infection if not done properly, and can cause damage, or even rupture your membranes.You aren't even checking right hun. You don't use your middle finger. With that being said, sounds like you are BARELY dilated. Remember, dilation has nothing to do with labor.

  • probably a fingertip to 1cm dilated. ofcourse i am not a doctor so I would just let your doctor check. how far along are you?
