How dilated were you the first time you were checked and how far along were you? Also did you stay at one spot for an extended period of time or did everything move along at a steady pace once you started dilating? Especially curious for second babies

I think 35 weeks I was at a 1 or a 2.

By 38 weeks I was a 4.

With my first I first got checked at 35 weeks and was 1cm. Still 1 at 36 weeks. At 37 weeks I was 3-4cm and when they induced me (bp) at 37.5 I was at 4.

Only 32 weeks this time around, so time will tell.

36 weeks and I was only a fingertip, not even a full centimeter, and stayed that way until I was induced.

With my first I was 3cm dilated at 35 weeks and was 5 cm by 37 weeks. I had him at 37 weeks 5 days. With my second I was 1cm at 29 weeks, they checked early because they thought I was having pre term labor. Then I was 3 cm at 34 weeks and was 4.5 cm at 37 weeks and had him at 37 weeks 5 days too.
