I don't think my midwives or the OBs that I see would have checked for dilation at 35 weeks unless I had specific signs of impending labor. The first time I was checked was at about 38 1/2 weeks.

It's your first baby, right? If that's the case, I would recommend waiting to check for dilation. The likelihood that you're dilated isn't good, and it can be really disappointing/frustrating to find out that you're not even close to going into labor. That's been my experience at least. You still have a lot of time between now and 40 weeks for your body to gear up to have that baby.

Fingers crossed that you're GBS negative!
