I checked mine at the beginning of labor and I couldn't tell a perfect measurement but I knew I was at least 2cm. It just let me know that I was open and probably not crazy for thinking I was in labor.
To piggy back off of Que, your cervix can really detour you mentally in labor. I progressed to 8 super fast and stalled at 9 cm for six hours. We all thought I'd deliver within the hour of finding me at 8. Not! My midwife said she wished she would have lied to me and told me 6 since we all heard 8 and thought I was almost done. Mentally, it caused me to get super aggravated at my body.
