Why are you so nervous?

expatinscotland Mon 08-Sep-08 23:01:30

i think about sex to relax everything 'down there'. don't know if it works but it takes my mind off it grin

The nurse will be used to women being nervous about smears - have you had one before.

Good on you for booking the appt, will be over and done with v quickly.

I find the waiting is the worst bit.
Once I'm there I sort of go into over drive and just let it all wash over me.
It's over and done with in such a short space of time and is really worth it for the peace of mind.

Would rather have a smear than go to the Dentist! sad <<quiver>>

Hope all's well. smile

Aw sweetie, I used to be like this. Listen, the anticipation is FAR worse than the event which will be over really fast. Tell them how you feel and they will be super kind. But well done you for getting it done in spite of your fear, as it's really important. I think we forget how lucky we are to have these screenings - they are a really positive thing. Think up a nice treat for afterwards!

I had one last week. It was fine.

In fact I didn't feel a thing as DD was crying (I had to bring her with me, and she was upset that she couldn't see me as I was behind the curtain) and I was talking to her to try and calm her down.

You need to distract yourself somehow and it will be over before you realise...

Good luck

Hope it went ok. I had one this morning which I have put off and put off, haven't had one since 2001 blush

It's not pleasant, but it's done now.

Lazarou Tue 09-Sep-08 11:52:44

I can no longer feel 'the tool' as my flange is so bucket like after babies.

onlygirl Tue 09-Sep-08 19:34:42
