For those who had or having a Schedule c-section:

Okay I went for my 36 week check up and all he did was check me with a swab.
I thought he has to see if I am dialateing (sp)
or is it cuz I am having a Schedule c-section that they are not checking if I have?

  • you would think they would check you anyways. my SIL is having a c section the 29th of this month and they checked her at her last visit. but maybe he thinks he doesnt need to since you are having a c section.

  • I am having a c-sec on jan 13th i am going for my 37week check up next monday and that will be the first time they will check me. Ask them too. But if you arent having any problems they wont til you get about 37 weeks.

  • My OB didn't check me until I was around 38 weeks. I think the swab was for the Group B Strep test? Anyhow, they should check you even though you have a scheduled csection. You could go into labor before the scheduled date.
