  • no.. I swore I could but I was never actually dialated when the doc checked me.. I was just psyching myself out cuz I was so nervous

  • I could not feel myself dialiate at all, i was dilated to 4cm and didnt even know it !!!! then when i went into the hospital about hours later i was dilated to 9cm..didnt feel it at all. But contractions are another thing! lol

  • I never did, but I have heard that if you visualize dilating and such you can encourage quicker dilating. Plus it helps to focus on something other than contractions.
