So i've been trying to read what it might mean when it's low and open? I can stick the tip of my finger into it and I guess it's pretty soft since I can do that, lol. AF is 4 days late, all bfns. Thanks guys!!

I thought low and open was AF? And if you've given birth vaginally, it's always gonna feel a little open.



Dammit.. I can't remember!

Yeah both of my girls were delivered vaginally.

How often do you check your cervix? I was surprised that mine felt like a smile :oops::lol:. It took me a few months to get used to the more subtle change between normal and open.

The day before I got my BFP I checked my cervix and it was slightly open ( but if you have been pregnant before it will be) and high...hard for me to reach. I could just barely reach it with my finger tip. It also felt soft still.

When AF is about to show, your cervix should be low, firm and open. :(

Not very often, I only checked it cuz i'm waiting on AF and was curious lol. What really alerted me was my b**bs feeling heavier and fuller and my nips being sensitive...where the heck is AF lol..normally my b**bs don't have any change like this.

Ah i see, well I don't think it's very firm it's hard for me to tell cuz it was soft enough to push on...when it's firm does it stick out more or something? It felt like it kinda came to a point if that makes sense.

It varies. You would need to know what your cervix feels like throughout your cycle to really tell.

Like a nose tip? For me when it was low and easy to find AF was on her way :(

Make sure you check it at the same time each day.

Yep, that's what confuses me...I dunno why i'd be having all of these symptoms starting like a week ago and still nothing *sigh*. Guess i'll keep waiting, nothing else I can do lol.
