I asked the dr if she was going to do a internal at my last exam 39 weeks to see if i was dialated and she said that they dont do internals because of risk of infection. This dosent sound right because everyone else I talk to say they check you around this time. Is this normal?

I never heard of that. When you do go into labor they'll have to check you anyway to see how far along you are. Come to think of it with my 2 nd daughter they did not check me and I remember thinking it was strange. I had a feeling I wasn't going to make it to my next visit and sure enough I had my baby that week.

There is a risk, not sure how small or large, so a few don't do them.

I had 2 internal exams a week & a trans v____al u/s once a weeks from 25 weeks up until 34 weeks (I was high risk) and since then I've gotten checked once a week. The dr. said the last 3 times that he didn't have to check me if I didn't want him too, but I said I wanted him too 'cause I want to know how I'm progressing. I'm 39 1/2 weeks.

On the bright side, I just had one at the start of my 38th week and nothing, NADA ZIPPO, dilation, etc. etc. LOL> At least you won't have to go through that disappointment!
