Okay ladies just clearing things up a bit for you. Just because you are dialating sooner does not necessarily mean your baby will come sooner. Baby comes when baby wants to come . I have a friend who had a baby last year she was dialated to 2 at 28 weeks and stayed that way the whole rest of her pregnancy she even went a week over due. Not just that but dialation could happen very slowly or in a matter of hours . I feel as though getting checked just gives you faulse hope its not really necessary.
