    Default Another Boring One!

    I had an OB appt this morning (sorry I think I forgot to put it in the appt thread). No weight gain since 2 weeks ago, measuring right on for 35 weeks, baby's HB was 139. Pretty basic.

    Start doing cervical checks and get the GBS swab next week. Ugh.

    Wow! 1 week appointments and you're at 35 weeks now...I'm a little jealous Glad everything is looking good and staying boring. Those really are the best type of appointments during pregnancy.

    YAY for a boring appt!

    Do they do routine cervical checks? Why is that? I never had my cervix checked once with DD and she was a planned c-section 10 days before my due date. Is that standard in the USA?

    It's pretty standard here. You can obviously decline if you don't want it. Personally, I get curious and want to know. Not that it matters. With my other two I was still at 4cm until 40 minutes before they were born!

    Heather, I just had one yesterday and they said that even though I am having a c-section they want to make sure I am not almost fully dilated and going into labor before I have my c-section. It didn't bother me.. and they won't be doing another one.. so just one.. yey!

    I saw an article lately saying that a lot of cervical checks wasn't recommended...but I haven't even read it. LOL. Let me see where it is and what it says. I don't really know much about it.

    I think cervix checks depend on the Dr/midwife.

    My OB in Saskatchewan only did them at 39 and 40 weeks, and she would NOT do the 39 week one if I didn't want. I'm not sure about my new OB, but he hasn't mentioned it yet. I know lots start at 36 weeks, but most women would prefer not being checked until later.

    I think the article I saw related to the frequency of pre-mature water breakage due to internal exams. Once the water breaks if labour doesn't start there can often be intervention after intervention to get baby out.

    Great appointment!

    My doctor starts checking at 36 weeks, but if I don't want him to, he won't do it. I haven't decided if I want to be checked Friday or not. With DS he checked me the day before he was born, and I hadn't even started to dilate. With DD I was checked twice before she was born, at 36 weeks (3cm) and 37 weeks (4.5cm). So for me anyway, dilation doesn't necessarily mean labor is imminent, or not. I am kinda curious to see though, if I have stared to dilate, which I suspect I have.
