Doctors Appointment

I'm 36 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I go for my 36 week appointment today, where they're going to check to see if I dialated. How many weeks are you? Have you dialated any?

Without complications (contractions or leaking) my doctor won't do a cervical check until 38 weeks. She doesn't want to start premature labor. Today I'm having my first check and I have been thinking of refusing. They are uncomfortable and don't tell you how close to labor you really are.

The doctor I went to with my son didn't check at all because of increase in infection. I switched doctors and they start them at 36 weeks. They also said something about checking for strep down there. Does your doctor do that?
