If I remember correctly, they just take a q-tip and swab right at the opening. They don't use the speculum, *IF* I remember correctly. lol.

yay for a soft cervix and 20% effaced. I can't wait till I get checked to see where I'm at. With both boys I walked around dilated to 4, for about 3 weeks.

With my last baby I was 3 cm's at 38 wks so I thought for sure I was about to go into labor.
