had my 37/38 week appt (losing track of what is what anymore) but i got my strep test...which HURT sooooo bad (i am really swollen down there) he told me he doesn't check for progress because there is no reason, he said if i WANTED him to he would....after how bad that swab hurt i told him i never want him to check me....and i was being serious. LOL....im really sensitive down there its amazing i never was like that with X.
anyway, other then them telling me signs of labor i go back Wednesday unless something exciting would happen.....which I hope doesn't happen until after Christmas now....the last thing I would want is to have this baby on Christmas and have to postpone things for X.
Glad to hear your apt was good (besides the pain :/). I feel really swollen down there as well. Being checked was agony. Why is that? Just the hormones and things starting to go on down there? Idk but I have really noticed the swelling down there, it's part of the reason I can't IMAGINE having sex!
OMG sex is soo out of the question here too. I couldn't believe swabbing hurt soo bad...I jumped omg...i swear I felt it for 1/2 hour! I cant imagine them even attempting to check me, the only way I want checked is if I have an epi (and i dont want one) hahaha....seriously though, if I am that swollen in labor it looks like i might be getting one because i cant even describe how it felt today, i didnt realize how swollen i was til today. OUCH. im not happy you are swollen too, but I am happy to know someone else knows what its like.
I had all that done this week too. Actually it was nothing compared to the nurses checking me in the hospital. They hurt me SO BAD!! I was dreading being checked ever again! Hope everything goes well for you!
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
honestly my doctor did it easy and everything, i am just THAT SWOLLEN down there and it is making it that sensitive. I can barely wipe because the pressure and swelling is soo bad...it is constant hurt. It is a major case of the "blue twinkies"
Hahahahaha Yes! I have dreaded this test for the whole pregnancy, and rightfully so! My doc goes in both spots, and then had to do it twice. He survived, though, which is a testament to my self-control. Hehehehe
