  • Every pelvic exam, however, they don't do them often in order to lessen the risk of infection. At 36 weeks we started doing them regularly and I knew the results.

  • Mine didn't do it unless mom requested, or until mom missed her due date.

  • My midwife only does it by request. My first one with my last pregnancy was at 41.5 weeksby request.

  • My midwife would only do it if I asked her to. I didn't ask because how far you are dilated doesn't tell you anything. Some women can be at 1 cm and have their baby later that day, while others walk around dilated to 7 cm for weeks before they go into labor.

  • My doctor started checking at 31 weeks. Although I was have small contractions. I was dilated 1 1/2 when they check.
