That dosage sounds correct. I would use it vaginally at this point since you're full term. And I agree that cervical checks aren't the greatest indicator of labor. I know women who have set at 4cm for weeks and for me I wasn't really dilated at all before hand. I was checked Friday because I thought I was in labor but I was only at a 1cm, barely. My water broke Sunday night and I delivered Monday morning at 38 weeks. Any first time mom being told at 38 weeks that she's only 1 cm assumes that she still has weeks to go but that's not always the case. Baby knows best. My next labor I hope to hold out on all cervical checks period until I feel pushy during transition.
