  • ask your doctor. but i think they do that for a good reason.

    its always better to be safe than sorry.

    i went to a weekly checkup every week since i was 15 weeks along ;)

  • Just talk to your doctor about that. I thought it was just the norm to get checked out each week like that.

  • me again? loook im from uk so not sure wot your doc is doin , but here you check i weekly from 36 weeks and get bp done and they measure your bump and ask how your feeling and try and guess if the baby has turned by feeling your belly? nobody checks to see if your dialated? this only happens when you go to hospital in labour or ir you go over your due date? with my first son nobody even put a hand up me until i was 4 days over and 6cm dialated.?
