Hi all - hope you are all well! Smile

Just wondering whether you get examined 'down there' at your later MW apps in the third Trimester? I ask because I've read of women saying that they get told that they are 40% effaced (for example) at my stage? Question

The main reason I want to know is I will need to schedule in some maintenance 'down there' - if you know what I mean!!! Laughing Laughing Laughing Mind you - might need to rope in the OH as I can't see what I'm doing past my bump!!!!!!! Laughing

You wont get anyone go down there until you're 40 weeks + thats when theyll likely offer you a sweep and not before. Unless theres a problem or a reason that they need to be.

I didn't get examined when pg with Belle. The only time they went "down there" was when i was at 10 cm and she was coming out of me. I was lucky no to be examined during the actual labour.

With this one i did have a stretch and sweep at 38+5 and was told i was 75% effaced. (i'm off for another one today)

I guessing its more common with second 3rd etc pregnancy's that they do this early. With your first they tend to wait until your past your due day.

I did when i had a sweep at 37 weeks, but i don't think it's standard in the uk at least, I wouldn't have anyone faffing around down there til it was absolutely necessary (including, or especially oh!!!). Think you can relax and put the strimmer away for now
