Aside from telling you how dilated/effaced you are, what is the benefit to having an internal exam at each visit? I'm planning on declining them because I figure the knowledge that I'm x cm isn't really going to do me any good. The baby is going to come when he comes so what is the point of having that information? Any other good reasons for an internal per visit?
*disclaimer - if there were any indication of danger to me and/or the babe, and an internal would provide helpful info, I would have one. I'm talking strictly no risk, everything going along just peachy here.
