I had my first internal last week for my 36 week checkup...and NOTHING! Dr said she is still high up and not even thinned, dialated, nothing :( My body is in so much pain all the time with my carpal tunnel and extreme swelling that I just need to be done! Then I asked my Dr. if she is at least in position...but she said she couldn't tell me and we'll find out next week with my sono. I hear all the time the Drs can figure out at least how they are positioned with just feeling the stomach. Why won't mine tell me! And I think at my 37 week check up... I might ask to be induced as soon as they can...just to keep my sanity!
