WHAT WEEK DOES THE DOCTOR START CHECKING FOR DIALATION?? MY NEXT APP. I WILL BE 36 WEEKS, DO YOU THINK HE WILL CHECK THEN?? JUST WONDERING, I'M GETTING REALLY NERVOUS AND EXCITED AND SO READY TO HAVE MY PRECIOUS BABY IN MY ARMS!!!!!!!

I think it's at 36 weeks because you are considered full term as of 36 weeks and that's when the weekly check ups begin. But it also depends on your Doctor because I know my friend wasn't checked for dialation until a week after she was over due. I would ask your Doc about how s/he goes about these things.

I asked my doctor at my 35 week appointment and he said that he starts checking at 38 weeks, unless you request it earlier.

I told my dr. that I had been having c___pmy contractions and she checked me at 33.5 and 35.5 weeks. Just tell them that you've been having braxton hicks that are sort of crampy.

They will start checking me at 37 weeks.At my 36 week checkup they will be doing the group b strep test.

First of all, I fully applaud KH's suggestions--lie like a rug to get your way! However, I also believe you shouldn't have to lie. Your insurance is paying your doc plenty to take care of you. There are minimal risks a__sociated with extra vag exams, but if you know that and want to do it anyway, your doctor should be happy to oblige! Good luck, hope things are a'changin'!

Thank you ladies for the ideas and responses. I think I will ask for an exam next time. Not that it will matter. But I would still like to know how things are looking "down south" so to speak. So that way hubby and I can help it out (the natural way of coarse) if things are not happening on there own. Have a wonderful day!!!!!
