You might feel pain

It is possible to feel some pain and discomfort with dilation and effacement. You will generally be feeling pain and discomfort anyway so it will be hard to distinguish other pregnancy discomforts and dilations/effacement. You will not really be able to feel it other than that.

    Is the pain and discomfort specific to dilation and effacement, or is it from the contractions causing these?? Thanks for the info Katie!!
