Can anyone make me feel better? What should I anticipate?

EDIT: I do have a kid, he's 1.5. I had a terrible OBGYN for my pregnancy and I didn't know I needed one. He never did a true exam.

Just scoot your butt all the way to the end of the table.

 Dont be scared you'll be fine. If anything you'll just feel a little bit uncomfortable with the doctor being right in your area. but its a pretty fast process, it'll be over before you know it. Good Luck!

Remember to spread your legs far apart it'll help make it not so painful. I'm not kidding. :-) its not painful but more so uncomfortable :-)

no sex,no oral,no douche, til after ur appt. scoot all the way down and relax ur legs. tell the dr you are anxious and they will walk u thru it. and shave ur pits cuz ull prolly have a breast exam. im always nervous too and i had one last friday so i sympathize.
