What is "rimming your cervix"?

Ok, I was looking at this other site and I found on there where it says something about having the doctor rim your cervix for you? I have never heard of it, and was wondering if anyone knew what it was or how it is done...all these new terms, and ideas for helping labor along are making my head spin...lol... <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dizzy.gif">
Thanks alot for all your input!

Re: What is "rimming your cervix"?

When my doctor used this term, she used it to mean that she was trying to gently induce labor for me by running her finger around my cervix and "stirring it up", to possibly get things started. Don't know if it worked or not... I went into labor 3 days later, so who knows.

I know what really helped stimulate me was cervical tape my doc put in there and it defintely got things going..in an hour or less. And it just felt like menstrual cramps..until they administered the Pitocin. But of course that all comes later. And I was induced b/c my b/p was jumping around.
