5 weeks..open cervix?

Postby MamaBird912 » Thu Dec 03, 2015 5:46 pm

Okay so I'm not a doctor, but I checked my cervix today and it seemed high and soft...but it felt like there was a hole in it. It seemed to be about the size of the tip of my pinky. Am I crazy or is that bad? I'm starting to get very slight aches in my pelvis as well... I'm scared it could be a miscarriage. No bleeding though.. Words of comfort would be appreciated.

Mine always feels like that until late first tri, sometimes off and on even later during the pregnancy. Everything I've read and been told is that it's completely normal if you've dilated before (even for women who didn't birth vaginally), and that your cervix is actually closed above it. You know when they check your cervix and tell you that it's "still long"? There's a lot more length of it to be closed in pregnancy.

If it helps at all, my cervix signs were not the first with any of my miscarriages (it was always the bleeding first).
