  • when i was 36 weeks i went in expecting to be checked and she just did the strep B test and nothing else. the next week and every week since then(40 weeks now) she has checked my cervix for dialation. After every check I usually spotted a little and had contractions intermittently for an hour or two.

  • They'll probably do a vaginal exam to check for dilation and effacement (or they might not, but if you want to know how you're doing you can ask them to), ask if you're having any cramps or contractions, in addition to all the other tests/questions they do/ask every time from the very beginning.
