Being checked at doctors office...just for fun!!

Hi July Mommies..............our month is almost here:)  I was just curious, have you started being checked yet at your doctors appointments, what week were you in, and what changes did they find?

I have not been checked yet, but have an appt. next week and I will then be 35 weeks.......I hope there are signs of thinning or something!

I am 37 weeks now.  Last week I was checked by the nurse practitioner and she said I was 60% effaced and a 'soft 1' cm dialated.  This week I was checked by my dr.  He said the baby is very low in my pelvis, my cervix is thin, and haven't really started dialating...  I can say that I've been loosing my mucus plug all week - it's crazy the amount of goo that's coming out of me!

I am 37 wks 5 days today.  Yesterday I was told that I am still at 1.5cm like last week and that my cervix is actually high up behind my pelvic bone.  She said I am starting to soften though.  The baby is measuring about a week ahead though, so she was asking me how big of babies I normally have...scary!  

To KRIS777...  I can tell you that my last doctor didn't check until you were 40 weeks or asked him before that.  He said it really doesn't mean a lot.  He said that you can be dilated for weeks and go past due or you can be not doing anything and then have your baby that night, so maybe it is just your doctor's preference.  Maybe you just need to ask!  I know that it is optional at my new doctor's, but I just have to know!

Ive had the B Test and that's it.  Im a little over 37 weeks.  My impression is that if you have any type of pressure or other symptoms, the doctor or nurse would examine me but otherwise, their letting the baby do her thing.  Like Lemenna said, if I go past my due date I'm sure my doctor will advise us what is in the best interest of the baby.

I guess some doctors don't check regularly at the end like Lemenna said.  The is my second pregnancy with the same doctor and I remember him my first time checking me every week starting at 37 weeks.  This time has been a little different, but I will be checked next Thursday and I will then be 38 weeks.  I guess every doctor is different......I know personally I want to know what the progress is:)

Good luck everyone and keep posting!!  We're all almost there!!!

I am 38 weeks today and had my doctor visit this morning................he checked me and I am only dilated to a 1 and my cervix has barely thinned any!  I was hoping for more progress than that, but I guess the baby is comfy where he is for now.  Good luck everyone!!!!!

1st_time_mommy--it sounds like you're almost there:)  Yay!

Hey......it sounds like you might be really close now:)  I actually started having the same pinkish brown discharge too--mine started yesterday the 18th along with stronger and more frequent BH.  My discharge so far hasn't gotten any heavier like yours, but maybe it will in the next few days.  It's getting exciting!!!!!  Have a great night:)
