  • normal pregnancies: at around 8 months
    high risk pregnancies: sometimes at 6-7 months already.

  • Mine never checked until 40 weeks. Next time I'm refusing vaginal exams. They mean very little, outside of a mom with pre-term labor.

  • They didn't check me till I came in with contractions Lol I had asked when they start checking and they said it depends on the doctor some check and some don't. And on the pregnancy to I'm sure.
