is it really going to hurt like that!!?

i get induced tonight and had an appt this morning i went to it and when i get checked he said he had to use 2 fingers, (idk why) and he did and it hurt SOOO bad that i could have cried and my leg like FLUNG forward. its never hurt like this EVER before. he said the nurses at the hospital will use 2 fingers too and it will hurt like that but towards the end it wont hurt as much.... so my question is, when you were in labor and got checked down there did it hurt bad like this?????

if you didnt get checked because you decided not to, this question doesnt apply to you. thanks ladies!!

  • Were they checking to see how dilated you were? If so, they checked me at my doctors appt. a few days ago. My doctor also used 2 fingers, and it hurt like hell! He just kept pushing and pushing !!!

  • I think it depends on who is checking you. When my doctor checked me it hurt like hell because he had a little bit bigger hands, but when the nurses checked me it was just uncomfortable.

  • when they check you it does hurt ALOT but they are just seeing how far along you are. this is a very crucial step b/c if your not progressing like you should be then theres a problem. for 3 wks beffore my due date i was dialated 2 CM and thinned out 70 % so when i went into labor i went from 3 cm to 10 cm in like an hour.

  • I wouldn't allow them to check me until I was well into labor. It isn't really needed.
