Please someone tell me how to dilate faster. Im 37 weeks and two days pregnant and im one cm. Give me some tips on how to dilate faster. This is my second child and I was also wondering would this one go faster or slower.. I had an u/s done yesterday and he was 1/2 lbs from being 8lbs. With my daughter my water broke at 37 weeks and she was 8lbs.. Thank you ladies for your comments and advise..
