So this morning in the shower, my cervix was definitely protruding a bit out of my vagina. I don't guess this is normal, right? Should I be worried? Any one else have this happen?

Yeah, sticking outside. Not far, but definitely outside. I've put a call into my midwife, just waiting for her to call back.

I've never heard of that, but it doesn't tend to come up in normal conversation, so who knows. Let us know what the MW had to say. Hoping for the best for you...

There was another poster who asked about this same thing a long time back, if I can dig up the link to the thread I will-- (I need to eat something, take a shower, and go to a doctors appointment, so it won't be until later this afternoon)-- and hopefully you'll have a better answer from your midwife by then. Anyway, I believe it ended up, in her case, not being the cervix. Otherwise I'd be worried about cervical/ uterine prolapse.



ETA I looked and looked for the thread, but couldn't find it, sorry.

I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon with my midwife. She seemed kinda concerned, which, of course, has me all anxious. I'll let you know how it goes.

Well, she didn't insist you go to the ER, or come in to see her that very moment... there is "concern" and then there is "emergency", so maybe that will help you get through until your appt.

Well, just got home from the midwife. I have an appointment to see an OB and possibly get an ultrasound in the morning. The midwife thinks my uterus is retroverted, which would be why it is pushing everything down and out (so to speak). She says it shouldn't cause any problems for the baby right now, but it could put me in some pain and we want it to go back where it belongs as soon as possible. We'll see what the OB says tomorrow. But I feel much better knowing it shouldn't be hurting the baby. But, until further notice or return of uterus to its proper position, I am on bedrest.

Thanks for your hugs and well wishes!

At least they had some ideas. Take care and hopefully someone is bringing you lots of snacks in bed . Rest well.

Yes, I'm glad that the MW didn't freak. I hope you aren't too uncomfortable, and that maybe you'll get some answers tomorrow.

Well, the OB didn't seem concerned at all. (Though I think when he stuck the speculum in it moved my cervix back, so he didn't see how far down it was. Ouch!) He just said we'll keep an eye on it and it should move itself into position as my uterus gets bigger. We did get to see our little Kumquat, though, in an ultrasound!! He or she had a little arm raised and waving at us!

Glad to see you don't have anything to worry about, and you were able to see your babe.
