  • @KirstinH88 I personally HATE paps but I think it's more because of the speculum than the actual swab or whatever they do in there. That metal thing just freaks me out. I had a similar reaction when they showed us the forceps in my childbirth class...I was like I REALLY hope those don't have to go anywhere near my lady parts  :#

  • Yeah my GBS was no big deal at all and took like a second. I'm with you @KirstinH88, paps have never bothered me. Once in awhile afterward I get a little crampy but the actual check is nbd.

    @chic_lit I'm 37 weeks and have been feeling the pelvic pressure since at least 35, sometimes I feel like I'm splitting apart (in a non painful way?).
    Appointment tomorrow at 37+1! This starts my weekly appointments. I get my GBS test and ultrasound to see how the baby is positioned. Really hoping it's not breech, but if it is I'm demanding my c section be scheduled for next week because of my company's goofy fiscal year. I need to have my FMLA and PTO used by June 1 or I lose it. A lot riding on tomorrow's appt. I'm also going to ask to be induced by April 5 if I reach my due date and no baby yet for the same reason.
    Full term is considered 39 wks now.

  • @kitkat8387 and @KirstinH88 I was pretty much a nervous wreck when it came to thinking about cervical checks and the GBS, really because I have never had them before and didn't know what to expect.  Paps have never bothered me.  I have never bled after or cramped.  When I went to the hospital they did a cervical check which was only a tad uncomfortable.  They did my GBS then as well, but I SWEAR the Dr. only swabbed my vagina. I'm pretty sure I would know if something went in the back door!  Is it possible to check without the anal part?

    Regardless, I'm glad your babe isn't Breech and you don't have to worry about it.

    37 weeks is considered "early term" from what my doctor said. No longer a premie, borderline full term, but not quite.
