I gave birth 3 in a half weeks ago and I'm just not sure what I should "look like" at this point but I did notice that it seems like my cervix is "right there". I felt inside my vagina today and noticed it right at the opening. Is this in the realm of normal for 4 weeks postpartum or should I be worried about a prolapse?

Sounds like prolapse is possible, I'd talk to your MW or OB.

I'm now in the prolapse club myself.

Ok so I haven't ventured to stick my finger up there and dig around for my cervix yet (still have some stitches that are healing) but when I look with a mirror things look... weird. I can't tell whether my vaginal opening is just SO stretched out that I'm seeing the muscles inside that I normally don't see, or what? This is where I wish I could find a picture of a 3-week postpartum view of the perineum.... Not readily available on google images Guess I'll just wait it out until my 6-week checkup.
