They should begin at about 35 or 36 weeks. At the dr that I go to, they said that you have to ask for them to check your cervix and stuff. So if you do want them done, make sure you let them know, some places don't do them as a mandatory thing. I know I started having mine after my GBS test at 35 weeks.

My doctor said when I start my visits at once a week which I think should start my next one at 35 weeks.

Hey jjroxy89, I'm 36 weeks and will be getting my first exam tomorrow. You can ask your doctor as they might do things differently depending on your situation, but I think 36 weeks is a pretty common time to start. Good luck and congratulations!

I was just at my 37 wk appointment and my Dr told me he would start them next week.

Usually between 36-38 weeks unless the doctors think they need to earlier for some reason.
