Question? When you start seeing your doctor every week. Are they suppose to check your cervix every time you go. I see a midwife and I wasn’t sure if they do different things from a regular doctor

— Not always, they will do it if you ask

— My doctor I have now does not check until 37 weeks but when I was pregnant with my first in a different state they checked once I hit my every week appointments

— My doctor didn't check me until I was overdue

— Not always. Mine was not checked until the day of my delivery

— Midwifes dont usually check often. My OB started at 36 with my last and the one before that not until 37 or 38.

— I got checked once in the ER at a different hospital. Other than that my midwife didn’t check me until the night I was admitted to be induced.
