i am currently 34 weeks along. i had been sitting at 2 cm for weeks. then the past few days i started having contractions. they start out just tightening then progress to pretty painful then end up slowing down after about and hour or two. i had some major contractions last night and i thought for sure this was it. but they stopped again. i didnt want to go to the hospital just to get checked so i did a cervical exam on my self (no judging, bash me i report u) any ways i was able to insert two fingers in to the cervix and spread them as far apart as the fingers we able to spread. and when i held the same spread fingers up to a cervical dilation chart it was between 5 and 6 cm. kinda scared me. u think i should go to the hospital the next time i have contractions for the steroid shots? or just to get checked?

Next question overall
What if the mother doesn't want the father's last name on the birth certificate?
