Depends on the Dr mine checks for dilatation and I'm only 29 weeks

Wow. Most drs won't check for dilation until you are about 37 weeks, reason being is that the checking of your cervix can induce labor. I would wait to ask your dr until you are farther along.

My doctor starts checking at 36 weeks.

i hear alot of girls starting to get checked at 36 weeks... nd ill be close to 36 weeks so i didnt no really

It could really go either way ya know. Either way you will be checked in the next couple of weeks. And it's uncomfortable, I had a hard time relaxing though which made it more uncomfortable. I got check because they thought I may have been going into preterm labor but I was dilated one bit.

I was checked from 35w on with my daughter. With my son, the hospital checked me at 34w due to preterm labor issues. I was 1cm. I was checked again by my dr at 35w6d and was 3cm. I have birth at 36w1d.

I've been checked weekly since 32 weeks but I have a history of going post term =\ so might not be much help.  You can ask and they can check if they are comfortable.  
3112100 tn?1379618259
Well they did check me.. I didn't even ask.. at that time I was 35+4 nd was dilated between 1-2 ... My next appt is Wednesday I'll be 36+4.. idk if now that I'm dilated they're ganna be checkin every week's or not now...

They most likely will.
3112100 tn?1379618259
Do yu no how many centimeters yu have to be fur the Dr to send yu to the hospital? I've heard 4 nd also heard 3....
3145189 tn?1343161021
Here it's 4CM.  But they also watch other factors.  They might NOT check you just because some doctors think that can move things along sooner.  It all depends on your doctor.
