My midwives only do them after 41 weeks or in active labor. I had false labor on a Friday and found out I was 1cm but ended up delivering 3 days later. I wouldn't put too much stock into dilation beforehand just because it can really turn on a dime. But I know what you mean about wanting to know where you stand. I did get jealous of other girls who knew in my DDC where they stood at 36 weeks but it ended up not making a difference.
