In non-pregnant women, the cervix is soft around the time of ovulation. In pregnant women, the cervix becomes soft in preparation for labor.

What does it mean to have a soft cervix at 21 weeks?

A slight softening of the cervix can be normal, but a really soft cervix could be worrisome. It may mean that you have an incompetent cervix (one that will not support the weight of a growing baby), that your cervix is ripening early, or something else. DEFINITELY ask your doctor about it, and if you are not satisfied with the answer, get a second opinion.
