They can be a little uncomfortable, and the midwife or doctor will always tell you before proceeding to do one and should endevour to be as gentle as they can be. Having said all that, some women actually ask for an internal to be done when they want to know how far along (dilated) they are and can find it a big boost to their energy/morale when they find they're nearly there. It can also have the opposite effect....i think my words were " 3 cms!!! but it's been 8 hrs already!" haha. I hope i've eased a little of your anxiety and i'm sure you'll be fine. good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!
