It's not really procedure. They try and stay out of there as much as possible. Some check, some don't. I have only been checked when there was a problem.

I had to ask to be checked at 38 and 39 weeks. It wasn't standard.

Mine won't check till I pa__s my due date.

My doc will be checking every week starting at 35 weeks.

I have weekly non-stress tests; if I'm contracting during the monitoring, they check my cervix. Otherwise, they leave it alone.

I'm 38 weeks too and they do check if you want your doc to. :)

My dr checks starting at 36 weeks, and every week thereafter.
