    Usually term plus 5 days for first baby and term plus 7 days for second baby on.If having a sweep and all normal. If consultant request earlier sweeps can be done.

    The first time mine was checked was at 39 weeks when the midwife attempted my first sweep.

    I don't think they tend to fiddle about up there unless necessary. x x x

    I didn't get my cervix checked until I was in labour and they were checking to see how dilated I was. I've never heard of them checking before labour before unless you're having a sweep xx
