I mean in the first week or so. Does your body continue doing what it normally does (like it's still thinking AF is coming) until implantation happens??<br><br>
Does the cervix close immediately if the egg is fertilized?? What direction does it move in?<br><br>
Just obsessing during the 2ww<br><br>
Thanks!!<br><br>
(I also posted this in the TTC forum but so far no takers. I thought someone over here may have more insight <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> )

Hi, Kim, in my experience and reading of personal accounts, it REALLY depends. Some women experience creamier than normal CM (outside of the possible EW that comes just before AF). Others just get that out of the blue without being pregnant. As far as cervical position goes it usually is high, firm and closed like always and then sometimes ripening up just before AF.<br><br>
There's just not any real reliable sign of pregnancy that I'm aware of! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> I know that 2WW can be torturous! I hope you're not waiting too much longer and that you get your <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"> very soon! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

My experience is that it changes all the time. It was so hard for me to determine anything about the pregnancy by feeling my cervial position/or amount of mucus. What is more reliable is having your blood drawn to check the HCG level.

the only thing that was the same for me both times I was pregnant was that after ovulation, my cervix got hard and closed and stayed that way. Normally, for me, my cervix starts getting softer and more open right before AF, continuing to soften and open more until ovulation, when it closes tight and gets hard again.<br><br>
with DD1, I had what was exactly like fertile-quality cm my entire pregnancy, and lots of it. with DD2, I sometimes had ewcm, sometimes creamy, and sometimes none.<br><br>
my cervix moved around a lot, both pregnancies.

I know. I actually have a Dr's appointment on Mon and I have to get my blood work done to make sure my TSH levels are OK (hypothryroidism). I was thinking of having the preg test thrown in there too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> But I'd only be about 9dpo and I don't want to pay for it if I don't have to. I think I'll just have to find some patience *sigh*
