When did your Dr start checking your cervix?

I have an appointment tomorrow, it’s the first of my “weekly.” I will be 36 weeks. She said she doesn’t normally start checking until 36/37 weeks, and she can check me if I want. Last week when I saw her I wasn’t worried about her checking her as I hadn’t had any contractions (that I’ve noticed.) I did get the Bloomlife monitor and I think I’ve just been having Braxton Hicks, and now all of the sudden I feel like he’s really dropped. Like I knew he was getting lower but now when I walk I can feel his head hitting my cervix. Should I have her check me?

Keep in mind we’ve been growing about a week and a half-2 weeks ahead this whole time.
