I went in for my 37 wk check-up on Friday, and they didn't do a cervical check! Ugh. I really wanted to know if there was any progress going on!

The good news is my BP is good, iron is good, HR is 156, and I'm measuring 39 weeks! I got back for another checkup, and an ultrasound, on Thursday.

That's strange that you didn't get a cervical check. Are you with a midwife or an OB? I have found that midwives are very hands off when it comes to that stuff. An OB on the other hand will do it.

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)

Honestly, a check this early doesn't necessarily mean anything, anyway. You could already be at 3 cm yet stay that way for a month. Early labor is so irregular. I know it's frustrating, though!

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!

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!

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!

It is sooo frustrating, but my OB doesn't check until 38wks either! Just think you'll know this week though

Sounds like a good appointment but stinky when you thought it might happen.
