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!

Thank you, MommaDucks, for my lovely siggy
