Low hard cervix in early pregnancy im 5 weeks with my 5 th is this normal i also have a tipped uterus?

Mild uterus prolapse: It is possible since this is the 5th pregnancy and the cervix is low and hard, that there is some uterine prolapse and the uterus is sitting lower in the pelvis than usual.

Hi I am 8.5 weeks pregnant and checked cervix in bath and it feels low soft and it feels quite open is  this normal? it is second pregnancy

???: I don't know where this "checking cervix " fad has come from but it has absolutely no usefulness. It's very difficult to check your own cervix. Visualizing it would be better than blindly poking around. Most women do not know what it is they are feeling when they try. They often misinterpret what they think they are feeling. I think it worries women more than it enlightens. ...Read more
