Hehe the cervix definitely is NOT a crystal ball! Although I was 4 cms before labor began, I was checked 15 hours in and was only 5. I shrugged it off without much further thought because I was too focused at the time. Lo and behold, 45 minutes later I went into transition and made it all the way to 10.

I'm mostly interested in checking out of curiosity - to see if I actually *could* check myself. It really is more liberating, and much less embarrassing to do it myself than relying on someone else to do it, you know? Plus, I'd love to practice and learn what exactly to feel for so that I can measure myself in early labor.
