Doc appointment

Yesterday I went in for my 38 week check up. The doctor checked my cervix, I'm almost 1 cm. Not that it means anything, I already know that. I'm expecting to go late this time like I did with my daughter (she was born at 41 weeks). Any way I asked my questions and that was it. They didnt check the fundal height. Is that normal for them not to check so close to the due date?

  • Probably forgot~
    you can check it yourself (with help), but it's more accurate to have the same person do it in the same manner if possible.
    Anyhow, just an estimate anyway.
    Did you get palpated?
    Is your baby still in the same position?

  • Well I got my blood pressure checked, my cervix, the baby's heart beat, and he checked to make sure baby was still head down. So no baby hasnt changed position, he's still head down. They only thing he didnt do was fundal height. So maybe he did forget.
