uncomfortable after being checked for dialating (sp)

I went to the dr today. i will be 37wks tomorrow. today i had my group b strep test (swab) done and checked for dialation which hurt like hell and dont remember ever being checked when pregnant with my daughter.had a c-section with her and have a c-section with this one on june 8th. anyway i am uncomfortable when i walk around maybe not pain but somewhat could it be from being checked or something else. my baby is head down been that way for 2wks. its not contractions.even though i dont know what contractions are like or water breaking or anything like that (yes i know i am lucky lol) its not coming and going its just a dull uncomfortable type thing. any ideas?

  • My first dilation check made me spot which is normal. i also had discomfort for 2 days due to the check. if it doesnt cease or it is really worrying you then call your doc, they should answer your questions.

  • The last month I was checked at every visit. I haven't been checked for dilation with this one yet, but I'm only 14 weeks. But I know after any checks you can have some discomfort and even bleed a little from irritating the cervix. I wouldn't worry.
