Also, the amount you're effaced or dilated isn't necessarily an indicator of when you'll go into labour. You can be partially effaced or dilated for weeks. I denied vaginal exams during my pregnancies because there was no need for them.

Your cervix has to thin out before you start to dilate. Once she is fully effaced then she will start to dilate.
