Hmm, I guess it just depends on the Dr/practice. I'm with a different dr now than I was with DS and was just wondering. I was going to ask her at my next appt which is next week, but wanted to ask here first. Sometimes my DS has to come with me if I don't have anyone to watch him and I want to make sure he isn't there for that!
Jen&Peter - we have the same C-section date!
KendraJoette:Im having a repeat C/S and they will check you if you start having contractions or signs of labor to make sure you arent in active labor, but as long as everything is going fine my doctor hasnt checked.
I'm almost to week 38 and no one has checked me yet. One of the midwives mentioned it in passing, said she would if I wanted, but it seems like it is done more to humor people than anything else. I mean, not for everyone...some people with health issues or inductions, I think they need to check more, but for a lot of people...it seems it's just for...well, the fun of knowing or thinking you know that you are closer!
I am scheduled for a RCS, though, but not until into my 40th week. But for my last pregnancy, they never really initiated it, either. Because it seems it doesn't necessarily mean anything in particular. But....I am glad....because....oh, I hate them! For some reason, that hurts me late in pregnancy.
KatiKM:they have been checking me
Umm hello, another Bend, Oregon friend? We may need to get our LOs together sometime.
COMomma81:Mine said she would if I was curious, but otherwise...no. I have not been checked, and will not either.
