Question about Position of Cervix

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am 37 weeks and have been having bouts of 'false' labor. My MW came to my house today for our appointment, I asked her if she thought there was any value in doing a pelvic. She told me that she didn't need to do one for herself but would be happy to do one if it would help me in any way. Since I had intense false labor this past Friday I decided to go ahead and have her check me. She found my cervix to be anterior, a stretchy 2 cm and 50% effaced. Now, this is #4 for me and I know that I could be 2cm for weeks. I was curious about the cervical position being anterior rather than posterior. I know that usually the cervix turns anterior before birth but is there a time table for that?
I'm not in a big hurry and am confident that this little one will come when he or she is ready, I'm just curious.

the cervix moves in late pregnancy and in early labor. An anterior cervix means that it's typically well applied to baby's head and that it's a more positive sign that your body during that "false labor" did some important work!

Never doubt the ability of your body - I doubt your "false labor" was "false" at all - it obviously did some things!

A posterior cervix is one that is found behind the baby's head. A midline cervix is one that is not posterior, but has yet to move forward.

With this baby (#3) my cervix became anterior about a week before SROM, two days after SROM I had Morrigan. so a total of about 10 days all told. Mine moved to tha anterior position when I had a weekend long bout of "false labor" too.
