  • thats totally normal =) Get some good rest and you should feel much better by morning.

  • That's a normal feeling. I would let them do that though if I were you. it has the potential to introduce bacteria into the cervix and it really doesn't tell them anything pertinent. Tell them to skip it next time.

  • It can be normal, but you also have to stay tuned in to your body during pregnancy and follow your instincts. If you feel something is wrong, call you doc. How far along are you?
