yep, you could have been having tiny contractions for the past month or one big contraction that caused the dilation. Hopefully youre in early labor but dont get your hopes up too high 

Quoting Pandapanda:

yeah. But.. your cervix doesn't mean anything, so don't get your hopes up! How far along are you? Are you comfortable? :)

 Baby movement during labor is completely normal, the baby's movement (if not drugged up) can help the birthing process

1cm doesn't mean anything. I was 2-3cm for almost 6 weeks. Both my dds were extremely active until they came

I was at 1cm for 5 weeks and on the day I was to be induced I went in for one more check and still no change. That night they wanted to check me before giving the cervidil and I was 5cm! I got away with being able to sleep through the night without the cervidil. lol

When I went in to be induced I was 4 I think or close to 4. Then 20 hours in I was stuck at 8.5 cm for like 4-5 hour I think. Something like that it was stupid :(

Yeah it took me 14 hrs after breaking my water to go the rest of the way. And even then I wasn't quite at 10 so the nurse said let's do a practice push, just a tiny one to see if we can get that last bit to get to 10. I did my little practice push and he crowned lol.

Yes, they can move in labor. My girls both moved tons. I had to actually get the internal fetal monitor for my first daughter because she kept bumping the belly one off my belly lol.
