I was 1.5cm and 70% effaced last Monday, 36 weeks, baby was at -2 station. I was dialated early with my son too, so I don't think it means I will go at time soon. My dr. said he figured I would still be pregnant in a week...Having lots of good practice contractions though!

it's totally fine to not have any checks! I wasn't going to have any, but my midwife wanted to confirm it was baby's head and how low it actually was. I was a-ok with this, and curious myself. I'm not sure if i'll have any more checks until labor (or any during labor.) I do find it interesting the changes that happen though!
