    They don't check it as a routine check.

    Probably won't look until 40 week appointment to see if it is dilating and maybe to perform a sweep.

    I wasn't even checked at 40 weeks when pregnant with my daughter - it was only when I was in early labour that I was checked.

    Don't worry. :hugs:

    I had mine checked just once at my 8 week appointment to make sure it was closed. Shouldn't check it again till labor.

    No, never checked when I was pregnant with Anna. I had a c-section at 39+3 so didnt get to labour either!

    I wouldnt expect to have it checked other than to see how far on you are into the labour.

    Never, i got a sweep at 41 weeks and had no internals until then. I then had 2 in labour. Don't plan to have any this time unless there's a reason.

    I only got it checked when something was wrong. Ouchy!! Stuck her whole friggin hand up there - not pleasant. So yes, be very glad you don't get it checked on a normal basis!!

    Mine was checked from 35 weeks on but i think it was only because I had preterm labor at 34 weeks that was stopped thankfully.

    midwives only put 2 fingers in actually though im sure it does feel like a whole hand lol! we couldnt feel anymore with a whole hand then we could with 2 fingers really, so its no advantage to use at all to do this and it would be extremely difficult to get a hand up there, esp if its your first baby!
