I went in for my first pre-natal appointment today, they do them at 13 weeks where I live (in the arctic). I have a midwife, but she is in Calgary, where I will be delivering (bit of a long story....). Anyways, I went in for my pre-natal with the nurse here, planning to refuse a pap smear, but when I got there, it was the head nurse, who is a midwife herself, so I let her do one. Big Mistake! I bled quite a bit, and I'm still bleeding now, and I'm very worried. She told me not to worry, since its external, says she was very gentle, this has only happened one other time in her career, etc. etc.... But I can't help it! Is there anything I can do? Has anyone else experienced this? I'm sooooo frustrated! thanks for listening to my vent ......
