Uh... I have never heard of a rectal exam for preg. Am I missing something? lol - Pretty sure its a Pelvic Exam. The baby doesnt come out the backdoor?!?!

And do you mean 3 - 5 week or 35 week?! If so, why so late!!!

With my first I never had any rectal exams. o.O And the nurse didn't check to see if I was dilating until my due date. That was just how things worked in my Dr's office though. I hope for your sake they don't do the rectal! Good luck!

I think your gramma had a pervie doctor. The exams they do are vaginal.
