I've never heard of a "high cervix" but I suspect they mean you have a retroverted uterus. Uterus is tilted backwards towards the rectum instead of forward behind the bladder. Many years ago doctors thought it was difficult to get pregnant if you had this condition, but there is no evidence to support this. PAP smear can be difficult due to "high cervix" doctor has to look up toward the ceiling to find the cervix. This can cause pain with intercourse in certain positions since the penis bangs into the uterus with sex, if so just try a different position and tell your partner what hurts. Don't worry about it, but might want to mention it before each pelvic exam.

What does it mean for your cervix to be high and turned towards you whe you are pregnant?

Usually the cervix is suspended just above the vaginal canal. A high cervix means that your uterus is placed high in the abdominal/pelvic cavity. During pregnancy, the cervix undergoes expected changes and becoming higher is one of them. These changes can occur at anytime during a pregnancy. I suggest you speak to your OB/Gyn for more information.
