When I was pregnant I started getting checked at 36wks an was going weekly. We now have a 2½ month old son :) some doctors are different tho. I would maybe go to the er an see if they will check her there.
You could Ask to be checked at her next appointment.
They will most likely start checking on the reg . But if she is having any contractions or pressure is deff bring it up to the dr. If she is having consistent and painful contractions I'd get her to the ER just to make sure it's all ok. Goodluck and congrats u two!! And kudos to U dad for being proactive
She can just tell the doctor at her next appt to check. Some doctors see no point in doing it every week or at all. But if she tells the doctor tondo it then they need to dobit its their job.
