I'm going for my 16 week check up at the hospy today (even though I'm already 18 weeks, they made all my appointmants 2 weeks out ) and was wondering if this will involve an internal examination? I read somewhere that that don't really do them any more unles they need to for some reason. I had one with my first but can't remember how far along I was at the time.
Is it standard procedure?

I didn't have an internal at any of my appointments and I'd be refusing if I did! It's completely unnecessary!

No there is no internal exam at 16 weeks , unless they have a reason then there is no need for an internal exept at term when they might check the dilation. The exam should invole a bllod pressure test and maybe a small ultrasound to check bubs heart rate etc and a measure of the belly and a few questions.
If you are asked for an internal you can say no if you dont want it done.
