Without going into the whole story of why I'm asking, can dilation shrink?
or can the baby go back up if mom lies down, and the cervix close back around it?
If you have seen this, and think it can, by how much
do you think?
Any incredible shrinking cervix stories?

I had this happen to me in 87, I don't remember the numbers, but I just would not stay dilated. I had some INCREDIBLY strong contractions, they told me that they had seen few contractions register as high as mine. But unfortunately the contractions would not stay consistently regular and frequent. So I would go to (I think) 8 cm and then down to 5 or 6? between contractions. This was after being INDUCED! 42 hrs after my water broke I had a c section. Boy was I ticked, going thru all that agony for nothing.
But at least my son had a BEAUTIFUL round head
