My cervix is still rather high and posterior (to be expected) but I was happy that I could find it and that it was already softening. Maybe this baby won't be as late as my others.

I can feel mine but don't know what the heck to think of it! It's soft and has an opening ~~ I suppose that means a little effacement and dilation?

I think that there are two layers to the opening. Sometimes it feels like it's dialated a little but really the inner layer is still closed? Dunno. Anyway, I checked today, too, and while it was still very posterior and closed, it was more anterior than a few weeks ago and only about as thick as the rest of the uterus that I can feel.

Can anyone else feel the baby's head? Mine is so low that I have this hard head in my vagina and that's what I press the cevix against to see if it's softer or thinner.

Funny thi sshould come up, I was just thinking of starting this thread last night. I can't find my cervix at all! It's gone........I only started checking in the last month or so (since I got pregnant) and have yet to feel it........I've never had trouble finding it before, oh well I guess when it finally re-emerges I will know somethings happening. And yes I to can feel the babies head in my vagina, I could for the last month with DS to, its so wierd to feel something so hard in there.

Cheers
Heather

Wow... I have trouble wiping myself, nevermind finding my cervix. My arms are just not long enough!

Amen that! I can't even reach all the way back when I wipe anymore, much less feel for a cervix. Nobody warned me about that!
