  • it's up to you if he checks you or not, but it won't really make a difference if you are dilated or not. i had my son at 41 weeks! gl!!!! :)

  • With my first, I went into pre term labor at about 32 weeks. The labor stopped, but I was put on bedrest since it was so early and I had already dilated to 3 cm. They checked me every week after that. She was born at about 38 1/2 weeks. With my second, they started checking me somewhere in the end of my 7th month just because of my previous pregnancy. I had absolutely no contractions and did not dilate until about 37 1/2 weeks, I just went into labor, and she was born! If you're having a lot of contractions, just ask them to check you. It's better to be safe than sorry!
