When do they start checking your cervix?

I had DD at 35 weeks, and my first check was halfway through labor and I was already 6 cm dilated... I'm just antsy to know what's going on. I go for my 35+ week check tomorrow, and didn't know if i ought to expect it then, or the following week. I can probably expect the strep test tomorrow, though, right?

Re: When do they start checking your cervix?

I have my 36 week check up today ( I am actually 35w5d). I am supposed to have the strep test. I am not sure if they will check me, last time at 36 weeks they did. I will let you know when I get home!

My midwife said she won't check me until 40 weeks unless I request it. I'm 39 and 2 days so I'm debating whether I want to be checked this coming Thursday.

Re: When do they start checking your cervix?

I also have my 36 week check up today but didnt think I was going to be seeing a doctor - just the nurse about my birthing plan.. Not really sure what to expect - but they surprised me with the bloodsugar test so maybe they will surprise me today

Re: When do they start checking your cervix?

I'm 35 wks and we'll be doing the strep test today. I'll probably let her check while she's down there. My OB gives the option of checks at each appointment from here out.

My midwife does the gbs test at 35 weeks (but she lets me do it myself in the bathroom). They have never checked my cervix but I had my babies on the early side (36 weeks and 38 weeks) I don't know if they would more toward the end...
