Quoting Furyss2:" My doctor started checking me at 36 weeks and I remember it hurt like a you know what at every appt until ... [snip!] ... wonder if it is because I'm really close. I am 2 1/2 centimeters and 70% effaced Come on baby good luck with everything."
ohkay good, because mine hurt a lot more then i thought it would and my dr was kind of looking at me like i was stupid lol. i'm pretty sure he said i was almost completely effaced, but only 1 cm, so hopefully at my 39 week i've dilated more and it won't hurt haha. and thanks! you too!! (:
