My DH checked my cervix about a week ago - I'm only 28 weeks, but I wanted reassurance that the contractions I was having wasn't causing me to dilate. (I went into preterm labor with DS and never felt anything more than BH contractions, even though I dilated to a 4 and eventually 6 cm.) DH had checked my IUD strings before but that was his only prior "experience" with cervixes.
I asked him (just now) if he was sure what he was feeling was the cervix and he said yes, definitely. He said the vaginal walls were much softer and squishier and the cervix was more firm and muscular, felt more like a sphincter. I couldn't feel him touching it, either.
I can't reach my own cervix even when I'm not pregnant so that's why I checked it.
