  • You can dilate at any time. You most likely won't even know it. I'm surprised they checked you at 35 weeks anyways.

  • its a little early to be dilated.. u can start dilating at any time u can be at 1 cm at 36 weeks and then go to 41 weeks or u can be completely closed and go into labor later that day... its different with everyone

  • You don't have to dilate for labor to start and you to go from 0 to 10. Don't worry about dilation so'll be ok.

  • the only way i knew i was dilated was my mucus plug came out and you have to be at least 2 and a half centimeters
