Last night I felt my cervix. It's so different feeling than it was when I was ttc and doing cervical checks! It's soft, kinda mushy, but with definite sides and it seems closed. Is like a swollen and soft version of it's old self! I felt the Os and it was closed but the putter maybe 1/16th of an inch was soft and the very tip of a finger could prolly' nest in it.

So when it starts dilating what does it feel like? Does the mushy Os just get so soft that anything can squeeze through the mush? Does it open up and feel like a nostril with a definite hole?
