dilated or not dilated?
Today Im 34 weeks n the last time I went to the doctor, she said I was externally open becuz I had already a baby before. So does that mean Important dilated at all or not? Im so confused! Or maybe my cervix is thinning out? Idk! Can someone plz help me answer this question.

Hi!
If you were my patient, I woudl advise you that the cervix is about 2 inches long and can often feel like a funnel which is closed at the top.  This is very common when women have had children before.  It doesn't mean that you will have preterm or early labor--sorry!
Good luck!
Dr B

I would just call back up to your drs office and have them explain what she meant. Good luck!

Its normal to be dialated about a centimeter already if you had a baby already.at my 36 week check up I was dialated to a 2 but internally I was 1.5 (I have a 4 yr old).I still say I'm dialated to a 2 though.lol
