I get my first cervix check on the 8th. I hope it doesnt hurt. What all does the ob do? Is it like a pap smear only a little more involved? Im nervous...

Cervix checks suck!! The dr will stick their *fingers, 1-2* ::eye roll:: inside you as far as they can (hopefully they have long fingers) and it's just an uncomfortable as a pap smear or IMO worse. Cramps to follow each time w my first as well.

I don't hurt after but during it hurts. this week I will be getting my third check and Last week I had my OB do it and he is a male dr and it hurt that I had to take deep breaths to deal with it instead of crying and the week before that I had the Dr. assistance do it and it was a women, she didn't hurt me that bad but still hurt. Though afterwards I didn't hurt on any of my check ups

I cramp a little. My cervix must be made of steel because it has never hurt me that bad, during or after. :?

They do not put their their while hand up into your vag! Lol they put like 2 fingers inside.to feel your cervix. In my experience its.not uncomfortable. I've never had any pain from it

Oh good. I took childbirth classes but they didnt cover that part at all. I assumed it was pretty much the same as a pap smear which is tolerable. And i worry a bit cuz my dh has said that i feel much tighter when we have sex so im hoping thats not a bad thing when it comes to the birth.



Eta i see what you did there gavinsmom lol! I probably seem gullible lmao

You feel tighter because you are swollen from extra blood flow. That's normal. Just wait till you see how swollen you are after you push a baby through your vag. Lol but no. It being swollen won't make giving birth ant harder.
