  • You can dilate at any time during your late pregnancy with no pain. Some women walk around for months at 3 cm before labor actually starts.

  • My niece was dialated at 4 cm for 3 weeks before she had her last baby.

  • i have 3 children and have never dialated on my own. not even 1 cm. so that is not true, but it is not a cause for worry if you do dialate. it doesn't mean you're going into early labor or anything like that.

  • Of course I was 7months when I was dialated 1cm. I have a friend that was 3cm at 6months and stayed that way until she delivered 4months later. It's perfectly normal and it doesn't mean the baby is coming early.
