Stretch to 3cm?

I went in the other day and my midwife said I was still at 2cm, but that she could easily stretch me to a 3 so was she was going to go with 3cm. Anyone else ever been told something like this? Found it a bit odd myself.

  • Yes, with my first I was a 2 but could be stretched to a 3. It really just means that your cervix is pliable, which is a good thing.

  • Agree with pp... Your cervix is most likely fully or almost fully effaced. Good sign. :)
