i have a midwife appointment tomorrow and up until now i have declined any cervix checks (and been enjoying it!). i wasn't planning on having any unless i go overdue (background is that i am having a VBAC, they will only let me go two weeks overdue, i can't be induced so if a foley balloon in the cervix doesn't work, i have to have a c-section again). i am starting to wonder if i should just go ahead and have my cervix checked tomorrow - it could be nice to know if i am making any progress - it sure doesn't feel like it to me. if i haven't gone into labor by the time i am 40 weeks, i will begin upping natural labor inducing methods with my last ditch effort being a chiropractor. is there any advantage to me having my cervix checked now? disadvantages?
