My MW did it at my 36 week home visit. Had it come back positive (which it didn't) we wouldn't have changed much, if anything... I know she said she would do less vaginal exams, especially if my water had broken, but it never brakes until baby is crowning, and she only ever checked me twice anyway.

Have you had a bad experience?
