Can your cervix dialate or soften with irregular REAL contractions?

I started labor on Sat night...Went in Sunday morning and Dr wanted to stop my labor with Brethene.

So my contractions became irregular and less strong. But I am still having them...sometime 8-10 minutes apart...then they will stop for a long time...then come back.

Could these contractions be changing my cervix any at all? Even a bit? I was 1 cm sunday when they checked me.

  • It's possible. No way to know unless you check.

  • Yep. I took the Breathine too. Hated that stuff, but it did work.
