36th week check-up.....

This upcomming Monday is my 3th week checkup and was wondering what happened during yours? Everytime I go in they just weigh me, take my pee sample, measure my belly then I'm done.....I just didn't know if they check out your vaginal area or do anything special?

  • Sounds familiar-- they also palpate belly for position, check pulse, baby's heart rate, and blood pressure, too. I never had any vaginal exams prenatally because the information is irrelevant & can be harmful. I also sat for an hour or two sipping tea and asking all my questions, lol, loved the appointments! :-D

  • No, nothing special yet. They didn't check my cervix until the 40th week.

  • Sorry, but I think it all depends on your doctor and if you've had any labor symptoms or pregnancy complications. I had my first cervical check at 37-weeks, but as you've read above, you may not. Good luck with your appointment!

  • You know . Its the same thing for me too,
    But alas they do check the blood pressure...and check the babies heart ,

    seems like a waste of time to go in almost EVERY WEEK for a hello and a goodbye,

    i dont know if i get a Cervical check since i have to get a c-section but im sure they do and around 36-37 weeks is when i had mine done with the first pregnancy

  • I'm having a planned c-section so it's not at all nessesary. Probably not the case for you, but throught I'd throw it ou there. Did they do the GBS test?
