Did you ask to be checked and they refused? That would stink, but I can see why some are more overcautious than others... My OB checks at 39 weeks, anything before then you have to ask or have had some kind of pre-labor episode (cramping/contractions/etc)
Yeah, they haven't checked me, either. I guess they just don't do it, since it really doesn't tell you anything specific.
PLUS, then my midwife told me I should come back in another week (I was there on a Thursday), but that appointments at the end of the week are pretty full so I could make it be for 10 days from now, instead. I wanted to yell, "NOOOOOO!!!! I would rather have this baby in 10 days!!!!" but that did not seem to be on her radar... I couldn't believe she thought I would make it two full weekends before having him, but it's looking like that might be the case. I'm sooooo ready!
Mama to two boys (6 and 2 years old) and expecting a third in August!
I'm with an OB, which is why it surprised me so much! I didn't ask him to check, but I did ask if he was going to, he said probably next week *sigh* I know it doesn't mean much yet, but I still just want to know already!
mine dont check iether..!! i guess untill i have contrax that is..!!! urrgh..!! but i guess he is doing u.s every time.. and they can see the cervix like that..!! cos last time he said the baby's head is still floating and not engaged at all...!!
hoping to hear that she is engaged now.. cos of all the pressure and pains on my back these days..!!!
