Cervical Dilatation

i was wondering if cervical dilatation starts after losing the mucous plug or it doesn't matter?? and when does the doctor check how much we are dilated..

They usually don't do an internal til about 38 weeks or later, as they don't like to risk infections or accidently breaking your waters. And i'm not 100% sure, but i think that you lose your mucous plug when your cervix starts to efface and begins to dialate, that's when the plug is loosened and comes away, although this can start very slowly and happen up to a couple of weeks before you give birth.

i agree with kara you start losing the plug after your cervix starts to efface
