    Question Anyone Familiar with Cervix Positioning?

    I've only been able to feel mine a few times. I don't like the idea of checking for it since I really don't know how to feel for it.

    I remember the very first time I did feel it, it was right after AF, actually I still had her a little bit, I checked when I was in the shower. I remember it feeling very hard, like the tip of your nose from what I have read.

    Well I just thought I would check mind now just to see if it was close to feeling anywhere near that and IDK if I was feeling the right thing, but all I felt was very soft and Spongy. I'm still 5 days away from AF's Due date.

    Is this a good Sign that I am possibly Pregnant? I've been having allot of other Symptoms but I thought I would check things out since I did take a test this morning and it was Negative. I'm just getting antsy about the whole thing, I'm horrible with waiting

    I'm afraid I don't have much experience to share with you. To be honest, I really can't reach mine so I just don't check it! I do know from other ladies that it is important to check it everyday so that you get used to what your cervix feels like at different times of the month.

    I totally understand being horrible about waiting...I'm right there with you! I hope you have some good news coming!

    Took this from Fertility Friend's charting course:

    Early in your cycle, during and just after menstruation and prior to peak fertility when your estrogen level is low, your cervix is low, hard, firm and closed and easy to feel with your fingers. Your cervix lifts and straightens and becomes softer, higher and more open as your fertility (and the presence of estrogen) increases.
    These cervical changes make the cervix more receptive to sperm and allow them to enter your reproductive tract and travel into the fallopian tubes where an egg may be fertilized. After ovulation, your cervix again becomes more closed and firm and lower.



    It doesn't say anything about a pregnancy sign, but I think it stays closed and firm when you're pg. "Think" being the key word there.

    Thanks for that Jessica, I wouldn't have even remembered to look there.

    I was going to say that I never could figure it out and the whole soft/firm, high/low, open/closed stuff just goes over my head so I never did that part of it.

    I'm not a professional "checker" by any means. I used to chart cervix info. along with temps and using opks. From what I recall your cervix will feel about the same before af regardless of whether you are pg or not (should be high and firm, I think). The 2ww is hard. Those last couple of days before af is due are the absolute worst!

    My brain undergoes some kind of warped change in the last few days before af arrives. Even though I KNOW an embryo has to implant and hcg has to be produced before any test would be positive or any symptoms develop, I obsess over everything that could indicate a pregnancy and start peeing on hpts even when I know it's too early. I search on the internet for early signs, try opks to see if I can at least figure out where the second line should be on an hpt, etc. Yes, I need help. I'm waiting to ovulate right now. I haven't even started with the opks this cycle. The tww craziness seems so far away. I'm sitting here thinking that I won't use a bunch of hpts this cycle because I'm still waiting for my cycle to regulate (still breastfeeding). And I know I'm lying to myself.
