I was wondering if anyone else has started to dilate yet. My doctor said it was pretty normal with second pregnancy. I am 31 weeks. I am having a lot of pressure and pains down there, I feel like the baby is just gonna drop out

this may sound like a dumb question but I have to ask. When you dialted did you have any show? Did you know that you were or did the doctor tell you?

I never knew I was dialating til dr told me and that was usually around 34 weeks and I was 3 cm or more after my first baby. the first I didn't dialate till about 3 days before she was born. With my last I was dialated to 4cm for about 5 weeks before she was born! I know what you mean about the pain and pressure. Some times when I sit down I get right back up because it just feels like there isn't anything between the baby's head and my bottom! I didn't have show with any till I was having contractions, except I had some brownish or pinkish discharge the day before labor began with a few of them.

I had kind of a light brown discharge last week, I went to the doctor yesterday and I have dialated to 1 cm now so she said that it could happen anytime. She atleast sees me going by 36/37 weeks or she hopes my body will atleast wait that long. But who knows I might have the New Years baby, I guess all I can do is put it in God's hands and when this baby is ready then he will come

I'm right there with you. I went in for preterm labor at 30 weeks and was dilated 1 cm and 50% effaced. My doctor didn't want to check me at my last appointment so as not to stir anything up. There's no telling where I'm at now. I'm thinking New Year's baby too.
