I’ve never had one (haven’t been pg), but I’m pretty sure it’s just a swab.

It’s not that bad, I promise!  ๐Ÿ™‚  It’s just a swab, like a Q-tip, and while it might be a little embarrassing, it certainly doesn’t hurt or anything.  They don’t “go in” very far.

No big deal- it’s just a swab.

@KellyV: So not looking forward to this. And I agree, we go through way too much stuff already.

@Mrs. Spring: But I don’t wanna!

@TheFutureMcBride:  Oh come on, I won’t take that attitude from you!  You’ve given birth!  What’s a little swab?

It’s really not that bad, guys, I promise.  Like I said, embarrassing but, um, so is having some little teeny bopper nursing student give you a catheter (and if you get an epidural, you also get the endless joy of catheter :).  You can do this!

You guys are killing me! C’mon, it feels like they just wiped you after going to the bathroom; that’s literally as far “in” as they go.  ๐Ÿ™‚  In other news, though, remember the enema thread from a few weeks ago?  That made me shudder.  This?  This is easy.

Honestly, they just barely touch your bum, it’s not like they poke it in there, just the outside.

@Mrs. Spring: I don’t care. I’m being a bigger baby about this birth.

 @camrie: I didn’t know what it was either until earlier today. Now I’m dreading it. Good luck.

@TheFutureMcBride:  Bwahahahah!  Alright, you get a free pass this once, I guess.  Maybe you can ask your doctor to swab your husband instead?  I’m not sure they’ll take the substituion, but it’s worth a try.

@KellyV:  DON’T READ THE ENEMA THREAD!  People were discussing whether they would have an enema before giving birth so they wouldn’t poop during labor.  Horrible stuff.

And by the way, most women poop at some point during labor.  But most of us do it on the toilet long before we get to the hospital/on the delivery table.  It’s nature’s way of preparing you for pushing.  ๐Ÿ™‚  You’re welcome.
