when do women usually start dilating.. ?



I know every woman is different.. but are most already started dilating a couple of weeks before their due date?



do some women not dilate? even at their due date?



hmm

It varies between women to women. I didn't dialate until 38 weeks.

I'm 33 weeks and at last appt was 1 cent dilated! It all depends on if you have productive contractions that open your cervix. Some women it takes until the very last minute for things to open open.
Best of luck to you all!

well I'm only 35 weeks.. but.. I was checked last week because I was having contractions.. but they said I wasn't dilated and that she was really low.. and.. after they checked me.. I had some bleeding.. I didn't know if that could cause me to start dilating since I wasn't already.
I've still got 4 weeks.. and 5 days.. so I'll be fine..
but.. lol I'm just wondering

YAY! It makes me feel better with all the 37-38 weeks pregnant women that are not dilated either....I'm 50% effaced and praying I don't go overdue so my poor little guy doesn't share his birthday with Christmas.
