  • I am just starting the 1 wk appts. I'm 36 wks. Wed is the first of these and they will be checking for dialation.

  • My 1 week appointments started at 35 weeks because of high blood pressure. My doctor doesn't start checking for dilation until 37 weeks but I opt not to have it done because really all it does is introduce baceteria into the vagina.

    Also how dilated you are and how effaced you are prior to active labor do not really matter. You could go around dilated to a 4 and 80% effaced for 4 weeks or you could be completely closed and go into full blown labor tonight.

    How "progressed" you are mean nothing in the way of when you will go into labor.
