What should i expect?

I will be 38weeks tomorrow, and my doctor will be checking my pelvic and other stuff down there. What should I expect? How does it feel, what all happens? I am a first time mom.

      It's definitely awkward and depending on how your cervix is, can be a little painful. I have a tilted cervix, so for them to get a good idea of effacement and dilation, they have to kind of search around... not. comfortable. They will check to make sure baby is head down and in a good place for delivery. I was 0 effaced and 0 dilated at all my lead up appts and when I got checked into the hospital at 41 weeks for induction so I'm not sure what it feels like if your cervix is more cooperative, but it's not a super awesome feeling, that's for sure.
