I know...it's really that uncomfortable...when my doc checks I'm like..ohh I have to run from there right now..it's even painful sometimes. But we have to na dear :( good luck!!!
Its uncomfortable and painful but soooooo much worse when they check it whilst your in labour, I literally screamed!
I encourage you to talk to your doctor about this - there is no hard and fast reason why she has to check your cervix. It lets her and you know if you have started to dialate and efface, but even this does not accurately predict when labor will start. So she may be fine with skipping it, if you want. The famous midwives (Ina May and her group from "the farm") never do cervical checks.
Yeah I hate being checked too. Not just bc its uncomfortable but also bc I'm really shy and it just kinda embarrasses me lol
