My cervix feels high and very soft. I want to know if I am dialated or not. What does a super high and very soft cervix mean in pregnancy. Im 37w6d?

Maybe: Generally, as the cervix readies for labor, it becomes softer, it "moves down" a bit, and then it starts to dilate. Usually, this is caused by contractions - if you're not having contractions, or any bleeding, or any loss of fluid, then you probably aren't dilating just yet. But your doctor can check at your next visit! if you are having any of those signs, i would go to your doctor sooner. ...Read more

Hello my cervix is soft, high up, and tiltED back. I have been trying to conceive do you believe that is a sign of pregnancy?

Nope.: Usually the cervix is only useful as an indication of pregnancy on visual inspection and classically it appears bluish in early pregnancy. Nevertheless the best way to determine if you are pregnant or not is with a simple home urine pregnancy test. Head to the pharmacy and pick up one designed to detect early pregnancy. Most test kits have 2 or 3 per box so you can recheck in a few days if needed. ...Read more

What does having a pliable cervix mean with early pregnancy?

Friable?: I'm going to make a guess here: you mean "friable' not 'pliable.' Friable is a plain English word that means the cervix might bleed more easily than usual, such as during a vaginal exam, this is nearly universal in pregnancy. Pliable is like flexible, that is not used to describe a woman's cervix. ...Read more

2nd pregnancy @ 12 wks. Doc says baby is low. What does that mean, and why mention it? Risk of incompetent cervix? 1st preg went smoothly no problem

2nd pregnancy @ 12 wks. Doc says baby is low. What does that mean, and why mention it? Risk of incompetent cervix? 1st preg went smoothly no problem

Seems meaningless: Comments about "baby is low @12 weeks" do not seem to have any meaning to me either nor any scientific or clinical basis at this point of your pregnancy particularly in light of your previously normal 1st pregnancy. You may need a pregnancy sonographic exam by a certified sonographer to confirm that all is well and be reassured. ...Read more
