how soon do you start dilating

Its completely different for everybody, and whether you are dilating or not does not necessarily have any bearing on when you'll actually have your baby! As for me, my cervix didn't do a single thing, the baby didn't drop or anything until I suddenly went into labor, on my own, at 31 weeks and 1 day. I was worried my body wasn't going to do what it was supposed to and I'd have to be induced, which has a 50% "fail" rate if you aren't dilated. But I woke up one morning with cramps and bloody show, and once it started it went quickly!

I started dialating at 32 weeks with my second and around 34 with my first. I had both of them at 37 weeks and with the first I was 3 centemeters for the last few weeks and with my second I was four centemeters for the last two weeks and was 5 when I got to the hospital.
