Cervix fully dilated is the normal condition during labor in which a woman's cervix has become fully dilated. The cervix begins as a closed (not dilated) cervix.

Significance of low co2 (17mEq/l) and high anion gap (19mEq/l) in late (37 weeks) pregnancy? All other tests in metabolic panel within normal limits.

Frank discussion with your doctor are warranted. ...Read more
