Re: How long does it take to dilate?
Some people can be dialated to 1 or 2 for several weeks, and some go straight through to 10. You mentioned in the July moms thread that you've been having contractions as well, which changes the scenario a bit. Are they Braxton-Hicks contractions or labor contractions? I would assume if they were the real deal, they wouldn't let you go home. It's difficult to say how long you'll be dialated, especially with contractions and your history. You may have your baby soon.
