I had my first internal exam today, I was dreading it so much. I just hate the nakedness even with my midwife! But it went well, and not too embarrassing.
She said Fierna was definitely head down, stage -3 so not really engaged in my pelvis yet. But she said that's common for a second baby.
She said I'm still very thick in the cervix, so not thinning yet.
But she said I'm about one centimeter dilated, just on the top of my cervix, not all the way through.
Idk how they can tell so much just from feeling but wow!
So all is good.
It would be fun to be able to share how our exams go, and see who is getting close to labor! I'm due the 1st but I'm hoping for the 7th so I've got a while to go yet but I'm excited it's getting closer :)
