  • I dunno maybe! I guess wait and see. What are you like 36 weeks? No need to really check it doesn't mean alot.

  • PP is right...even if you are dilated you could still a week overdue and every time they check you, it just presents the opportunity for bacteria to be introduced into the vagina...so I really wouldn't WANT him to. You'll just drive yourself crazy wondering what it means if you are, and what it means if you aren't...when in reality...it means absolutely nothing! Whether he will want to check you...maybe not that early since many don't start that until full term (37 weeks and up). But it probably varies based on the doctor.
