Dialation

Anyone know if it's possible to feel it happening? I swear I feel like I'm being cranked open. Sorry if this is TMI, just wondering if this has happened to anyone else? I have an OB appt in an hour, I guess I'll see then if I'm further along or not.

I don't know about dilation, but I definitely didn't feel the funneling from the inside.

Hmm... good question! I have never felt it per se, I visualize it during contractions , but don't really feel it. On the other hand, I can feel the pressure of the baby's head on my cervix, what if that pressure dilates it?

the week before I first found out I was dilated, I thought I felt dilation. You are probably right!

With my second son I was dialated to 5 CM at my 39 week OB appt and had no idea, as I hadn't had one contraction... so I'm gonna say it's absolutely possible to dialate and not know it lol!

wow thats crazy!!!! getting to 5cm without pain is a total bonus haha!! you're halfway there. Did you go into labor pretty soon after that? I think i remember you saying all your babies were born around 39 weeks.
