It just depends on your doctor. With my first pregnancy cervix was never checked. Going to a different provider, cervix was checked at 36 weeks and asked if want checked on. Appointments after.

I don't get checked. Don't really need to know.   If it's your first,  chances are you aren't dilated.

I went to 41+1 with my first. Mw aren't allowed to do internals until we hit 40 wks over here (ni) but Dr's can. There were no signs of labour for me either til I woke up and started having contractions.  I'm 38+2 with no 2. Praying I don't go as far this time I can. Barely cope as it is.
