Getting checked on Wednesday for the 1st time - I'll be 37 weeks....

And I scheduled a prenatal massage for right after my appt. Is that a good idea? I seem to remember reading that you can bleed/cramp after your checked by your doc....what do you ladies think?

  • Shouldn't matter one bit. Even if you do bleed a little it is because it irritated the cervix, it wont put you at any risk or anything to have your massage afterward.

  • Ah, massage is fine. I hated getting checked. Hand in vagina never my idea of a good time but at least you'll know where you stand.
