Low Cervix at 6 weeks? ILoveCoop! {EBFB} Spencer, 753 posts

Is it normal for the cervix to be low at 6 weeks? I thought it got higher when you got pregnant, I have been worrying because of my brown discharge I had (which the dr said was normal) and so I checked my cervix and it seems kinda low, also I was sitting on the back part of the toilet seat not the front (sorry if thats confusing) would that make a difference of the way it felt? thanks alot!

I really dont think you should be messing in there. Couldnt you cause something to happen? If you have concerns you probably should call your OB.

You checked your own cervix? :shock:

Anyways, I don't think it means anything. It probably changed because you are pregnant. I heard on this one show, this guy could tell that his wife was pregnant because he could feel her cervix even more when they were having sex..

your still early on in pregnancy mine was low at the beginning and hard and a couple weeks later it moved up and has been like that, and has changed positions from high to medium etc but most of the time its high up. Brown discharge is normal and you CAN check your cervix but make sure to wash your hands before you do so. And dont check it often since it can irritate it and make you bleed from the increase in blood flow.

My cervix is still low and I am 6 months. Sometimes it is up there and soetimes when I am sitting on the toilet bowl I get a mirror and I lean back a little and look at my vagina and I can see my cervix sitting right down there.

Ladies you can check your cervix, a lot of women do it, to see when they are Oing and some do it to see if they are dilating, There are lots of links to see information on it :wink:
