Do I have a freakishly deep vagina? - Page 2

post #21 of 35
I can't find mine either, at least not anymore. I think it's too hard when the buddah belly is in the way and you're high and posterior. I make my partner check since he has longer fingers.

It is sometimes hard to reach, especially if it's posterior and up and behind the baby's head. If I get into a deep squat and tilt my pelvis forward in a pelvic tilt I can usually reach it. But - admittedly, sometimes it's just too far. Thankfully once active labor starts and dilation is underway it comes back around in front and I can easily reach it to feel progress and the baby's head! That's such a wonderful feeling! It's worth it to try in early labor even if you're convinced you can't reach in the end of pregnancy. Unless, of course, your water is broken so you're practicing infection avoidance.

Also more possible is checking for it right after sex/orgasm.

During both my pregnancies my cervix completely "disappeared" after about 6 weeks.

I took it as a sign to keep my fingers out of there while pregnant since I normally check it everyday as part of trying to get pregnant.

My sister has never been able to reach hers, ever.

Hi again, I have another tip for you cervical seekers out there I was in my large corner tub the other night and was quite easily able to feel the baby's head and right up past to my cervix while in the water. My position was like a splayed kneeling, with my knees out wide and with a pelvic tilt. I know water submersion can make the dilation and effacement feel different than "on land", so do take that into consideration (often feels less dilated/effaced I believe). And at this point, fairly close to birthing I think, I could easily fit two fingers in (3.5-4cms). But it's odd because I'm not completely effaced yet, so it's like a loose turtle neck hanging there. Anyway, feeling the baby's head right there was completely awesome and really got me excited about birthing soon. I highly recommend it to lift your spirits and get you "in the mood" without all that pain stuff interfering.

I can't ever find my cervix - I know where it is, I just can't reach it. I've tried all the positions, all the techniques, and all at various times. I have small hands ... so that could be a part of it. And, then, I may also have a bizarrely deep vagina, lol.

When I'm interested in checking my cervix, I have dp do it. It's just so much easier for me that way!

I do not have a deep vagina, I mean, I don't think so anyway. Like I know from inserting tampons or whatnot that it's pretty normal. And I can barely reach my cervix when pregnant. If at all. I think it has to do with not being able to get the right angle going.

Sometimes it can be a door at the end of the hallway. Sometimes it is more like a skylight on the ceiling of the hallway. And at 42 weeks, it is probably really soft and feels like the vaginal wall. Non pregnant, it is much firmer and more pronouced because it is not only not soft, but not effaced (thinned) or dialated.

Well still pregnant here and no cervix in sight. I've really enjoyed learning and laughing with you gals on this thread!

QUESTION.....
Wanting to try EPO tonight, but everything I read says to "massage it into my cervix" or "insert it near my cervix"...How on earth am I gonna do that if my cervix is no where to be found???
Guess I'll just insert it vaginally and hope for the best?!
