Update: spoke to my midwife about this today and she said that it certainly does have an effect and that even though technically I am a first time mum, my labour will behave like that of a multiple mum- she said my labour should theoretically be faster as the cervix has already softened and opened several times!! just thought I would update those of you who are interested Hi girls, Im not due in here until friday but thought I would pop in early with a question? looking forward to joining you all!!! does anyone know about dilation of the cervix during miscarriage- having had 4 miscarriages and the fact that my cervix has partially dilated 4 times does this still mean my cervix will behave like that of a first time mum in labour or will it be more likely to behave like a second or 3rd time mum (i.e. dilate more quickly- dilation before thinning out, quicker labour etc??) does anyone know- or have any experiences to share?
