No pain, no gain?

I had another check up yesterday, this time to see if I had dilated yet.
No one prepared me for this.
I realized it was a physical exam, and that alone had me a little freaked out.
I HATE papsmears, and I knew this exam wasn't going to be a walk in the park.
But no one told me how bad it was going to hurt.
I know I was cringing, I broke out into a sweat, and it took ALL I had not to start crying.
But I have made progress, which means that I will be able to be induced NEXT Thursday [if she doesn't come before then].
And poor Aaron...thinking he was making me feel better said 'Well, I'm sure that was nothing compared to pushing an 8 lb baby out.'
Thanks, hubby. That really makes me feel so much better.

Oh hun... I didn't realize that was your *first* check. :( Well, if anything I hope you're getting an epidural because if that's the case, by the time you get there to have your baby they might only check you once pre-epidural. ;) But if you aren't getting an epidural, you might want to rethink it. Because having had babies both ways- I'm big on epidurals. They are your friend and the needle is worth it. I wouldn't steer you wrong.

I have some of the foulest words come out of the sweetest women after a vaginal exam. So I think you are ok.
