So around 2pm today I had my strep b culture and the doctor checked my cervix....

He said it was soft, and that I could be in labor tomorrow, or in a couple weeks.... Anyways, I am really crampy in my groin area, and feeling kinda crappy. Could this be from the que-tip swab for the strep b, or from him checking my cervix?? Or what?

  • It's normal to feel crampy whenever they mess with your cervix. It's also normal to have some spotting after that as well. The spotting shouldn't last more than a few days though. good luck and congrats!

  • Probably from checking your cervix. You might even have a little blood, too.
    Try to drink plenty of water, and rest tonight.
    Best wishes!
