I’m confused though… cervical dilation doesn’t correlate with onset of labor. So that wouldn’t tell you if you need to be induced or not. You could end up 5cm for 4 weeks or you could go from closed to 7cm in 3 hours. Any doctor that “requires” any risky procedure without proper reason is a huge 🚩. Please be careful!
@Lauren because I’m at the end of my pregnancy, so he wants to see if I’m going to have to be induced
Why are they requiring cervical checks?
@Beatriz I think I might have to, but I really wanted to avoid it if possible
@Casey now u gotta let me know when she checks it again 😂
Get an epidural. It works like a charm 😂
@Antoinette oh maybe!! She just told me mine is closed 😂 guess that means it was hard
@Casey was your cervix soft or hard? He said mine was soft and tender, so I’m guessing that’s why it was so fragile
@SADE that’s what I said 😭. I was looking at ceiling holding the side of the seat. I’m gonna be fully horror screaming in labor
@Brooke omg 3 times in one sitting is insane 😭
Really I didn’t feel anything from my cervix being checked.. maybe it’s because I’m only 37 weeks?
I had my first cervix check today and it hurt so bad! I was thinking the same thing. Like how am I suppose to push out a baby if I can barely take a cervix check.
I was induced at 37 weeks, so I had my baby and I didn’t even make it to the appt where they check but they checked it like 3 times when I was in the hospital and that hurt worse than pushing the baby out 😂
I have to get another one next week. I’m literally praying my baby comes before then 😂
The cervix check hurt so much! But you’ve got this! 😊

Personally I felt like pushing a baby out hurt less than the cervix checks!
