Quoting Crystal Christofferson Kv:" You dilate from the inside out like a funnel. it starts on the inside (internal) before it can be felt ... [snip!] ... before it can be felt on the outside. Thats normal. i just ran in to the same queatoon a few weeks ago. Hope that helps .."so if my internal is 1 full cm & my external is only half a cm dose that mean my external is going to get to 1 cm soon? i am still having painful contractions & i know that is what can dilate you ..
Quoting Crystal Christofferson Kv:" How far along are you?"
Quoting Rachael Silipino:" I was taken to the hospital last night because of contractions that were very painful and coming 1 min ... [snip!] ... having very painful contractions and im only 32 weeks. And is also very hard for my water to break as well. Good luck to you."this will be my first child so im not sure if i will be having any issues but so far i have been dilating more & more for 3 days but its been moving very slowly which is a good thing i guess considering im only 32 weeks the contractions suck though . my doctor offered me narcotics for the pain but i refused them .
Quoting Crystal Christofferson Kv:" If you have any doubts go back in! I've made more than a couple trips for early labor myself. if they catch it early enough they can often slow it down or stop it. good luck!"
