I wouldn't know how a woman would have an idea that she's dialted.  I had no clue with both of my pregnancies.  I'm assuming they never checked you.  If you get to your next appt, just ask them to check.

I think the only way a woman would know is when her dr checks her and says "your Dialated to 2cm so on so forth) So if your not getting checked then there really is no way of knowing without an exam.... maybe give your midwife a call and see if she can do an exam to see if any progress has been made
