  • Well for me, they did everything like usual, but they also checked to see if I was dialated yet. Although, with my first, I went into pre-term labor at 7 months and had to be put on bedrest, so they checked me at every visit. (I managed to stay pregnant until 38 weeks with her) With my second, they started checking to see if I was dialated because my first was early. My second ended up being born at 371/2 weeks. So I'm not sure if they check everyone that way,but I would expect it.

  • they checked to see if i was dilated.. and i wanted them to check me EVERYtime so that i knew if i was progressing or not.
    it wasnt until the very end that i dilated to 1.. then my last apt, a day before my due date my midwife stripped my membranes.. i didnt know she planned on doing it, she just did it. they did it to my mom, she said it was very painful, bleeding, and it didnt put her into labor so she told me not to let them do it.
    but i spotted later (thought it was from being checked), then started having contractions a few hours later, the next night i was holding my beautiful little boy!
