I know I'm posting a lot the last few days. I was 2 cm three weeks ago I am 37 weeks now and I have had contractions for 2 days on and off now. and I had bloody show. I wish there was way to check and know how far dilated I am. When I check I can tell it's open but I don't know how to measure how much. And I can fell what feels like baby's head.

I wouldn't be poking around in there. Sure it will happen for you soon and poking around in there can just introduce infection.

Just listen to what your body is telling you.

I had my last baby at home unassisted, I didn't need to know ho wmany cm I was dialated, my body just told me when it was time.  

For my babies I had at the hosptial, I knew it was time to go when I would go in the bathroom to pee and I would get a contraction that put so much pressure down there that I couldn't get up until it was done. I went to the hospital with #'s 2-5 at 7cm dialated.
