Is it possible....

Can you undialate (sp?)? I was dialated(sp?) at one 3 days ago and I am wondering if I could go back to zero. Probably a stupid question but I really don't have a clue.

  • i dont think once you have dialted you can go back but i do know that say your at 4cm and they break your water its possible to go to a 3 cuz there is no longer the pressure of the water pressing down. but other then that no i dont think you can undialte. and good luck sounds like labor will be on the way soon.

  • It depends who is measuring. A man will measure you small than a woman. If the same person is doing the measuring, your baby may have shifted so you were not fully dialated to a 3 but the pressure kept it open at a 3

  • Yes, you can go backward. Stress can cause that.
