35 weeks pregnant felt your cervix and can fit your finger tip in what does this mean you have also lost your mucus plug?
Is it safe to go into a public swimming pool if you are 38 weeks pregnant and the cervix is starting to soften?
Certainly. There is a plug of mucus in your cervix blocking off the path to bacteria then you also have your bag of waters protecting the baby. So go, have fun. Swimming is GREAT for pregnant women. Read More
You can't see your cervix. I'm not sure why you would think it's open. Have you put your finger in your vagina to feel it? If you do that, it should feel soft like your lips if you're pregnant. If you aren't pregnant it should feel hard like the tip of your nose. Read More
Well I'm 5 weeks pregnant and my cervix is extremely high, medium hard, and closed completely. I hope this helped you a little! Read More
Maybe a "show" where you are losing the mucus plug that has been in your cervix until this point. If you are also having contractions, labour is on its way. If you are not having contractions, labour may still be a few days (or weeks, but at 40 weeks probably not) away. Read More
This generally happens when you are pregnant. The cervix starts to soften often weeks before the birthing process occurs. Read More
Yes, it's normal. It could be your cervix softening and your mucus plug going away. If there's a lot of bleeding, go to the hospital. Read More
Yes this is normal. There is a thick mucous plug in your cervix while you are pregnant. A few days or weeks before you deliver, as your cervix softens and you begin to dilate, this jelly like plug will fall out. Read More

2 cm is a little less than 2 finger widths. That is how open your cervix is. It means some progress. I am the same and was hoping for change this week with no such luck. Any day now!!! Read More
Well, this could mean you are in the early stage of a miscarriage. The cervix dialates and then the tissues and extra blood flow out first, then your baby (if it's small enough) I was 2cm dialated at 15 weeks. I went to my dr's and they sent me to the hospital. They went in and litterally tied my cervix closed. My cervix made a new mucus plug and closed on it's own and the… Read More
Yes, perfectly normal. Read More

No. If only 35 weeks pregnant, your cervix will not be ripened enough to allow true labor to begin. Will cause you lots of diarrhea and cramps, possibly back pain as well. Castor oil is know to work best after 37 weeks gestation and a ripened cervix. Read More
probably your mucus plug. ask your doctor Read More
That happens sometimes. As the pregnancy progresses, the clincial picture will become clearer. Read More
The clearest indication of whether or not you are pregnant is a positive pregnancy test - these can be taken from two weeks after you had sex - obviously you will also not have menstruated when you were due to start menstruating. Ovulation occurs two weeks before you are due to menstruate and typically you will see symptoms such as fertile cervical mucus and an open cervix. Ovulation and pregnancy are two very different states… Read More
If you are spotting pinkish red blood and mucus at 6 weeks pregnant, this could be normal. However, you will want to see a doctor to ensure that the pregnancy is still viable. Read More
Closed. It is one of the ways your body helps to protect your baby. The cervix only opens slightly to allow the sperm in during ovulation, then if pregnancy occurs it closes and what is known as a "Mucus Plug" fills in the rest of the gap. As the woman gets closer to delivery, one of the signs of early labor is when she loses her mucus plug.. that occurs when the cervix is begining… Read More

This means you have a short cervix. I am 22 weeks and my cervix is also 2.1 cm and I have been ordered to bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy and I may also have to get a cerclage which is a type of stitch they use for extra support for your baby. Having a short cervix during pregnancy increases the chance of preterm labor and even misscarriage. The farther along in your… Read More

When you are pregnant you have a mucus plug that is there to stop bacteria entering your uterus and harming the baby. As you approach your due date and your cervix thins and dilates, the mucus plug can come out. It is just like a big bit of goo. Some women report seeing it fall into the toilet. Some women never notice it go. And sometimes it is still there when you go into labour… Read More
How long before labor will begin i am 34 weeks pregnant and I'm losing my mucus plug now in clumps it's clear and thick?
I know it seems like things are moving along quickly, but this is just a sign that your cervix is changing and not that labor is imminent. It is normal for women's cervices to soften and open. This makes the cervix unable to hold on to the mucus. Did you know that you are constantly making more mucus? You'll probably continue to see this until you do finally go into labor. My advice is to… Read More
Cervix becomes soft at 4 weeks pregnancy. Not only cervix but uterus also becomes soft. Gynecologist is very careful while doing termination of pregnancy. ( Suction and evacuation.) Otherwise perforation of uterus occurs. Non-pregnant uterus is a tough structure and duringD and C, (Dilatation and curettage.) uterus does not get perforated, unless you want to perforate it.

First of all, no-one would be able to tell if they were only 3 weeks pregnant (this means a week after ovulation!) if your going off your ovulation, then yes it can feel spongy & swollen - the reason for the swelling is, increased blood flow, therefore your cervix would be blue also, which is very normal. Read More
Not sure if it is common or not but I was diagnosed with a shortened cervix at 16 weeks. My cervix had fallen to 2.8. I was placed on bedrest for one week. At 17 weeks, it measured 2.3. At 18 weeks, my cervix grew to 3.4. So I do know that it is possible. Good luck. Read More

Hi there. I am now 8 weeks but at 7 weeks I noticed that on day 5 my cervix was extremely low and soft and I wasn't sure what that meant either. Looking up stuff on the internet about it put my mind at ease as a tonne of other women had experienced the same thing at 6 or 7 or 9 weeks etc. I don't think it necessarily means anything as I was not… Read More
If you have had one or more babies previously, the cervix may not completely close after birth and so is slightly open during the next pregnancy. This does not mean that the woman is in labor. Labor is diagnosed when there are contractions that increase in length, strength and duration accompanied with effacement (thinning and shortening) and dilation of the cervix. Read More
