my doctor seems to think it's the baby's head applied to the cervix (when i told him my mom never dropped with her first and went 2 weeks "late," he told me "of course" she went 2 weeks late because "there was nothing to dilate her cervix"), but by that standard, no one could dilate unless baby was head-down and pretty much engaged, right?
and obviously people do...i read birth stories about women who get pretty dilated but then have to push baby down because he or she is still high.
even my birth instructor said you "can't dilate past 5" without the cooperation of the baby's position (meaning well-applied to the cervix), but then how to women deliver vaginal breeches?
it doesn't add up to me...
