If things havent changed by tomorrow, Im going to my OB.

 

Now, I can admit that Im super over cautious this time, and maybe this is nothing. When I sit on the toilet, my cervix is low (less than one inch inside my vaginal opening) and feels soft. I'm fairly sure it's closed, but I dont remember it ever being this low before. Im 16 weeks pregnant with twins, measuring about 22 weeks. Someone please just tell me this is normal and I just never noticed before.

SIDS happens.

I last touched my cervix about 4 weeks ago, consequently freaked out because it felt soft, I couldn't tell if it was open (i was spotting at the time) and it just did not feel "right" to me, only to be FINE. I vowed I wouldn't touch it again for the rest of my pregnancy because I upset myself for nothing.

If you're concerned, get checked out for your peace of mind.

New mama!

Sounds like prolapse. I had it last pregnancy. I noticed it right in the beginning og pregnancy and then my ob brushed it off as nothing when I told her I could feel my cervix RIGHT THERE. I did a little googling and figured out what it was and started implementing wholewoman principles about proper female posture. The posture and few exercises worked for me. This pregnancy I am having difficulty even reaching my cervix.

Well, I dont know what caused it to be so low last night, but when I woke up today, it was fine. High and fine, but I have a yeast infection now, so maybe that had something to do with it!

My cervix can be really weird, sometimes high sometimes low, always very soft (but closed). I'm glad it is back to normal today!
