For my first two children my cervix got stuck at 9.5 centimeters during the dilation process. With the first delivery it was stuck for over an hour and with the second a good 30-40 min. What are the chances this is going to happen with my third? Does anyone know why this happens? Thanks, ladies!!!!
What were your circumstances at the time? Were you on epidural? Were you mobile? Did Dr/Midwife have you change position?
I was at 9.5 cm, and my doctor said I just had a little lip of cervix on one side. She had me lay on that side and during a contraction she kind of rubbed that area of my cervix. Didn't feel good at all but with that one contraction the lip went away and I was a full 10cm and ready to push. She said it is usually because of a non-semetrical uterus or because of the way the baby is coming down. My little guy was coming out facing my left and that is where the lip was.
