3 Little Ones to Love.....
3 Gorgeous Girls!
I had to have one done a couple of weeks ago (YAY... NOT) but then that could have been due to the fact that my last one was done pre-Pumba lol.. Opps he-he
Anyway I asked about the safety of it all and stuff and they (well my doc) does not do the full smear just takes a swab.. Sorry TMI but that is the easiest (and nicest) way to explain on here lol, call me if you want me to explain properly lol

if you don't feel comfortable with it and your pap smears have all been normal in the past then tell your dr you would rather wait until you have had your baby.
I think it's just a some docs do some don't. I remember when I was pregnant with DS mum drilling into my head NOT to let them do a Papsmear, so at a check up when the lady said alright Papsmear time I jumped of the bed and said NAH-AHHH she tried to convince me to but I stood my ground so then she said fine just get it at your 6week checkup.
When my doctor and other midwives found out they all seemed pretty shocked about her trying to give me one?! So I would just stear clear til after the birth!
Q: Is a Pap smear safe in pregnancy?
Not only is a Pap smear safe in pregnancy, it is considered mandatory by many obstetricians. An abnormal Pap smear discovered during a pregnancy may determine the management of the pregnancy as well as management of the abnormal Pap. Thankfully, most problems, even most severely abnormal Paps, can be managed after a normal pregnancy concludes.
The Pap is a gentle scraping of cells from the mouth of your womb. It is far, far away from the pregnancy and even the mild spotting it can cause has nothing at all to do with the baby. The cells are delicate and it's not unusual to have a little spotting for a day or two, so don't panic if this happens.
So yes, you need that Pap smear--it's considered good obstetrics and must be part of the prenatal care.
might be different in different countries so dont know about that but will keep searching for my own interest. good luck in making your decision.
