I encourage you to talk to your doctor about this - there is no hard and fast reason why she has to check your cervix.  It lets her and you know if you have started to dialate and efface, but even this does not accurately predict when labor will start. So she may be fine with skipping it, if you want. The famous midwives (Ina May and her group from "the farm") never do cervical checks.
