The Position of Your Cervix in Early Pregnancy




Cervix Position in Early Pregnancy
 
 

Cervix Position and Fertility

There are many changes that occur in your body when you conceive. One such change is the position of your cervix.

For the most part, you are able to pinpoint where you are in your monthly cycle by determining what position your cervix is in, as well as by the quality and quantity of your cervical mucus. During menstruation, your cervix will descend to a low level. It is during this time that you can feel how firm your cervix is by inserting your middle finger into your vagina, as it is the longest. However, do be sure that your hands are sanitized and clean beforehand. Your cervix should feel firm – much like the tip of your nose.

 

Cervix and Ovulation

When you are ovulating, your cervix will rise up and its texture will be softer – similar to your lips. Your cervix will also be open to allow sperm in and will be moister than before.

When you are finished ovulating, your cervix will dip lower and become firmer again. The cervix opening will be closed. This can occur either immediately after you have ovulated, or it can take a few hours to a few days to occur.




 

Your Cervix at Conception and During Early Pregnancy

If you have been lucky and have conceived this cycle, your cervix should rise up again and feel soft. The difference here is that the opening to your cervix will remain closed. When exactly this happens will depend on your body – it can happen within 12 hours after ovulating or long after conception is confirmed with a pregnancy test.

Although your cervix will rise back up again during early pregnancy, it will not go quite as far back as it did before you successfully conceived. During these early weeks, your cervix will feel soft; whereas a non-pregnant cervix will feel similar to a fruit that has not quite ripened all the way. The cervix is soft in pregnancy because it literally becomes swollen with blood.

The key point here is to remember that even though your cervix will rise naturally when you are pregnant, the timing of this rise is unpredictable. Every women is unique and you may be experiencing a low cervix in early pregnancy simply because your body is taking a bit longer to adjust. There are many cases in which a woman’s cervix hasn’t risen in her first month of being pregnant. If you are one of them, stay positive and remember that your body may just need a few more days to adjust to being pregnant. If you are concerned for any reason then, by all means, you should consult with your doctor or OB/GYN.

Due to the unpredictable natural timing of the change of your cervix, you should not rely on the position of your cervix as an indication of a successful conception.

    Here’s the thing, I have had 5 pregnacies and I am 100% that I’m now about 4 weeks preg with #6. EXCEPT 4 outta 5 hpt have came bk negative. I had an ultrasound done 3 days before my missed period. ( for other reasons) the tech said that my wall was thick. And assumed it was that way bk I was due. So anyways on the 21 of sept I started spotting, it lasted for 8 hours ( I could have worn a panty liner) and then nothing! Dried up. Let me just say that I am always a FULL 7 days and heavy. So again, here I am, all the preg symptoms, and the ” just know” mother intuition, with let me add, a soft cervix. And STILL negatives hpt. I’m scared to go to my docs incase he miss diagnoses me due to lack of positive tests. Sorry this is so long, I also want to add that for my 5th preg, I didn’t know I was preg and was rushed to the emergency due to severe abdominal pain, they did an ultrasound and thought that they had seen a tubal. Nice way to find out eh? Anyways If anyone has any answers or similar situation it would really be helpful.

    Where did the positive pregnancy test fall in the 5 that you took? Did your period start yet?

  • elysia

    Um I haven’t had the nerve to buy a test yet . and I did have sex all through ovulation . but I have this weird discharge its white and I’m wet a lot these last few days but I’m not infected and I’m not in the mood for sex a whole lot . My boobs always hurt but I don’t think their pregnant lol and I had a few sign like I felt like sick at 10 am and my back is sore and I’m like blowing my days off because I’m just tired and I got headaches and cramps like I think it was a muscle contraction . but my period was dec 26/13 they start for a few days before each month starts . but any ways I’m paranoid .

  • kasey

    okay let me backtrack a little bit. my son was born last April, ever since then I’ve had heavy periods ever since (9 to be exact). lasts for 7-9 days and I had to change a super plus tampon every 1 1/2 – 2 hours. I usually start on the 26th or 27th of each month. this time around I was 8 days late and started “bleeding” on the 5th more brown than anything..today ( 7th of feb ) I just finished “bleeding”… I wanted to see how long I could go without changing my tampon (you might think its gross but it was my test to see how much I was bleeding) 10% of a super plus tampon had brownish red blood in 10 hours. yea not a lot compared to my last 9 periods.. after that its been a coral pink. I took a test on the 8th of feb and it came back negative. took a blood test on the 11th and it came back negative. im very confused about this situation. im cramping, fell sick when I eat sometimes, certain foods don’t taste the same to me( makes me gag when I try to eat it), and im tired… im not stressed, nothing has changed with my eating or exercise. everything has been the same so why the late and short “period”?? if you need any other info let me know

  • Trinity

    I’m 8 weeks pregnant and not happy

  • Addy Bernard

    My cervix is high not hard not soft and closed.
    I took a hpt and it was negative (very light I could barely see it)
    Also I have every pregnancy symptom for a few weeks now. (I miscarried 3 month ago)
    I haven’t gotten my period it’s a few days late I just got a lil light blood not like my usual period.
    Help!!!???

  • Holly Dye Naughton

    Addy-
    You say it was very light…if this is the line that tells you pregnant or not, even a light line means you are pregnant. I am so sorry to hear of your MC, I had one MC and a late term stillborn. The light blood could be implantation bleeding or a sign of onset of period. As you know MCs happen more often very early on. Best wishes to you!

  • Desperate hoping for a baby

    I am 33 years old and my husband and I have been trying for 3 years now. As of today, I am 6 days late and still getting negative pregnancy tests. I am usually pretty on track getting my period every 25 days. I’ve never been this late. I’m so nervous I just want something to ease my mind…..any advice please!

  • Angel

    Have you used a clear blue they pick up really low amounts of hcg

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    As you have been trying for over a year with no success, have you gone to see your doctor about this? Usually fertility workups are done if you have been trying this long to find out if there are larger issues at play where your fertility is concerned.

  • Prayingforpositive

    I had an IUD for five years scheduled to have it removed last month but decided in march we were ready for our second miracle, PT after PT they kept coming up with the dreaded one line negative. On the 12th of aug. I started spotting and I mean for long enough to wipe and light pink two days after ovulating, then again on the 22 of aug. I was do to start my period on the 2cnd of this month and I haven’t but still that dreaded one line makes me fear my prayers go unanswered. I tested yesterday and once again neg. I’m always hungry and lower back pains, my face had been acne free for two weeks and I have semi lower abdominal cramps and I look and feel bloated and moody. Any advice? Did I mention I have NEVER spotted before?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Was it a mirena or copper IUD? If it was the mirena, that has hormones combined with it so removing it could cause some break through bleeding while your body tries to regain it’s hormonal balance.

  • halo

    hello there its 3-4 days dpo and i have checked my cervix and its high and soft could this mean pregancy ?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It could mean that. Wait 6 more days and take that pregnancy test to see if you are pregnant. :)

  • aboutlaws31

    Why not????? It’s a beautiful thing. You should be grateful that you can do what a
    lot of women can’t.

  • Mary Katlyn

    I had sex the last 3 days of ovulation, and 2 times on day of. After ovulation I checked my cervix and it was low and hard, now I check it and it’s higher up and feels kinda soft kinda hard. I have a lot of white gooey cream every day. A few days ago I had cramps in my lower stomach for like 15 minutes then just nothing. My breasts feel heavier and just look bigger, I’m constantly tired like with no energy. I miscarried in early July, my periods due this Saturday. Could I be pregnant? And is it too early for a test because I’m tired of waiting for an answer-I just wanna know already.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Did you test or did your period arrive? Typically, if you have a pretty regular cycle, you can test with the tests on the market today and get accurate results at 3 or 4 days before your period is due.

  • johwang

    I wish i was d one pregnant but I still believing in God

  • Andrea Ampy

    I’m 45 days late 5 have told me negative n my cervix is high soft n closed am I pregnant

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, there is no way we can tell. You would do best by going to the doctor and see if they can help you figure it out.

  • Kitsu

    i’m sorta in the same boat. not because i don’t want to bring forth children, but because i feel guilty that i don’t have a house, stable job, money in the bank and am not married. it’s not like a single woman can afford children all that well, after all. and i’m not sure my partner would be supportive if i am pregnant.

  • Sandra

    Hi looking for some advice. I’ve been trying to get pregnant for close to a year now. I’m very focused on my ovulation days, cervix, etc. Saturday nite I was out with my husband and about 4 times that nite I welled up with tears. For no reason. I said either I’m pregnant or getting my period. Period is due on tues. So that nite I took a pregnancy test and it came up a very faint line. Faint but I could see it and so could my husband. I repeated the test yesterday and this morning, both with negatives. Any advice? Should I be getting happy-am I pregnant? The only other “symptom” I’ve had is craving chocolate….I’m ashamed to admit but last nite I ate an entire bag of chocolate Halloween candy

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I would keep testing! It could be that you just tested to early. Good luck!

  • Ftm

    Im pregnant with my first, 4 weeks 3 days, and my cervix is low, firm and closed. Don’t rely on your cervix to tell you if you are pregnant or not

  • kat

    Hi i am trying to conceve and recently i have has a little light red blood just for the one day and now my boobs have gone larger but just finishee my ovulation two days ago and my period is due in nine days could i be pregnant?? Please help x kat

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I totally agree with you here. Every woman is different and there is no absolute where cervix location is concerned when you are pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It’s possible.

  • didi ging

    Hey, so I need some advice, I’m on birth control pills but haven’t been taking it they way it should be, I take it like anytime of the day, I had my period from October 5th thru the 8th which was a little odd cuz It usually last like 7-9 days but I didn’t worry too much cuz it was pretty heavy, but then I started spotting from October 13 thru the 15 and it was dark blood like old looking I have taken 3 pregnancy test and they all came back negative, could I be testing to early, the only symptom that I have it’s sore boobs, a baby will always be a blessing, I’m just afraid for it to end in a miscarriage because of the spotting I had,
    Maybe I should add that when I do too much lifting or force I spot, I also have been getting some cum clear looking stuff when I wipe
    I also have a one year old

  • orion

    Thats why you need to understand the risks when choosing to not use protection. If you choose to be risky you need to be ready just in case. Ask yourself if an oopsie were to occur, could you still be ok financially etc. If you are not stable enough and the partner isnt commited to the thought of a new little one, then its not worth the risk. There are ways to still have sex without a condom and still be protected. I know its not as nice of a feeling when using a condom. So its something to think of for those who really dread finding out they are pregnant or dont want to have it happen. As always, it only takes one time to possibly become pregnant.

  • Amy

    there are many couples who want children look into adoption.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well, considering you are not taking the birth control as directed by the instructions, there is always a chance that you can get pregnant. Spotting can be caused by hormonal imbalance which could be caused by inconsistent birth control taking. It can also be due to early pregnancy bleeding. Maybe you need to contact your doctor about this and continue taking pregnancy tests until you either get a positive or your period fully arrives.

  • Lelo73

    Hey, I have a feeling I’m pregnant but not 100% sure yet. I tested last Sunday and it said negative, but I might have tested too soon. Three months ago I switch bc pills to a different brand. Took it for a month and slacked on the next cycle, so I stopped taking it and spotted from sept 7 to sept 28, so not sure when to expect my period, but my bf has went inside a lot. I have been very tired, had very bad headaches the past two days, cramping but not as bad as period cramping it lasted two days, nausea, leg cramps only in one leg, stuffed up nose, dry mouth even with my increased thirst. And I have been using the washroom a lot more often. Not sure when to test again though, some advise would be awesome!!

  • Kerensa

    Hello,
    My hubby and i are trying to get pregnant. I had mirena removed October 2 2014 after 7 years of placement. I believe I recently ovulated, but am unsure how sex should feel if I’ve conceived. Or if there is a difference. We were in a doggy position, which is normal for us, but this time there was a lot of pressure, I mean a lot. It felt like he was ramming into a wall. What does that mean?

  • Gracey

    I’m wondering if anyone else has had this.. I was just over 1 month late for my period and had a pregnancy test and bloods done at the doctors which both came back negative. 1 month later I had a spotting in the morning then the next day I had a very light bleed for one day then it stopped. Anyway, I took a test the day after and it was negative. It’s now been 4 months since I last had a period. I had blood tests done again today and get results back Monday. but I’m looking to see if any other women have experienced this and what the outcome was? I’ve been feeling tired and bloated. I’ve also been urinating frequently. I just checked my cervix and it feels high(ish) and very soft. Could I be pregnant? Please help

  • flakiz2015

    I have 6 months living with my husband i wanted to get pregnant since the start when started living together and it wouldnt happen until we decided to stop trying to conceive a baby and here we are now we are expecting a baby thank God and im 3month pregnant… may be if you just dont try God will bless you with a Miracle…

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    As your hormones seem to be all out of whack due to the birth control, there is no saying if you are pregnant or not. You should continue to test every couple of days until you get a positive or your period arrives. If you don’t get either after a while, you may want to go and see your doctor.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It sounds like your cervix position has been changing around. The hormone in the Mirena could have affected how your reproductive system was working so now that it is not a factor, it could be that you are seeing what it feels like without that hormone influence. You can learn more about your cervix position and your cycle here http://www.babyhopes.com/articles/cervixpositionpregnancy.html

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It sounds like you have a major hormonal imbalance if you are not pregnant. While unlikely, due to all the testing you’ve done, pregnancy is always a possibility until it is totally ruled out. An ultrasound will definitely say whether or not you are but that can’t really be done until the 6-8th week of pregnancy so the fetus can actually be seen if you are pregnant.

  • amber

    I have a question. I’m 4 days late now. I’m usually never late. My cervix is high firm and Completely closed. I’ve been nauseated. Sore nipples random headaches. Me and my bf aren’t trying but were not using protection. So it wouldn’t be a shock. I just need someone else’s input. I’ve had white as well as watery cm PLEASE GIVE ME SOME INPUT ASAP

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Did you take a pregnancy test?

  • amber

    Not yet I don’t want to get my hopes up I just wanted advice

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well, if you are having symptoms, not using protection, and are 4 days late, taking a pregnancy test would be the next logical step :)

  • add

    If you’re A spiritual person. .pray on it. It is a blessing. No one is ever really ad ready as they’d like to be for parenthood, but you figure it out. I was divorced with a 1 yr old and a 4 yr old..and had just started wking through a temp agency. Through prayer,determination, and a supportive family we made it. I was a single parent for 8 yrs.
    Hope that helps.

  • Eliza

    Okay so lately I have been feeling all weird type of things after ovulation. Been feeling tired nauseous some days worse than others but not throwing up. I been feeling cramps and my period isn’t due for another 5 days. I have low cramps since a little after ov. The other day I was on break and my right boob felt like it was being stabbed. It happened around 1pm and then again @ 6pm only one day. Before then like a couple days after ov I was feeling myself if u know wat I mean. And then after u went to the bathroom and wiped and there was light blood on tissue. Only day that happened so I’m thinking I must have scraped myself. I thought nothing much. Today 5 days before my missed period I checked my cervix and it’s so soft and I cannot find it. When I checked yesterday it was there but u felt it. Then I pulled out my finger and there was a white sticky mucus on my finger I mean I could stretch it out. Also in to occasions I was crying for the dumbest things I feel something is up. I tested Thursday and got a neg but it was a dollar tree test. I have so many new things happening to me I swear if I’m not prego I’m bugging out. My boos are sore but only in the sides. When I touch I feel bloated for sure. I really don’t know if I should test again or wait till my period. I kinda wanna know now cuz this stuff is freaky

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You could have been testing too early. Try again closer to when your period is due.

  • Jamie and jaimew

    I know u don’t know me but I just want to say I’m very envious of you. I want to be pregnant have been trying for awhile now. I am a lesbian and married to the love of my life obviously we can’t get pregnant naturally but we have been using a donor this is our third try I’m only a day late but I’m never late tested today it was negative but I have no symptoms the afternoon is coming. Anyways I was just wondering if u have thought about adoption I don’t k ow how u feel about that but if u would think about it I would love to adopt we want a family so bad and I know u don’t know me from Adam but if you really don’t want it, I would b willing to adopt me and my wife would be so happy since we want more than anything to have a family. Please thank about it.

  • Tinaliu

    My cervix was high soft and open indicating ovulation, dropped and became hard and closed for a few days then suddenly became high like when I ovulate was soft but firm and closed with a stretchy discharge could this indicate pregnancy?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, as stated in the article above, the cervix position is not a failsafe way to determine if you have conceived. If you had been tracking cervical position month after month and what you noticed this month was not typical of how your body normally reacts, then you could possibly tell that perhaps you did conceive this month.

    Just saw this post . How are you doing now ? You must be 7 months now . I hope you’re happier ?! It is a stressful , but rewarding thing …

  • julie89

    My cervix is low and closed my breast are tender I’m very hormonal I pee a lot I missed my period for 5 days now what is going on and I cry over everything but had a negative hpt ?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Did your cycle come regularly (around every 28 days) befor you missed? By now, you should be getting a positive pregnancy test if you were pregnant. There are too many variables to really guess as to what is going on with your system.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Could it be that you were off on when you thought your period was due, or do you have irregular cycles? Both could play a part in your lateness if you keep getting negative pregnancy tests.

  • Emily

    Okay ladies..
    Today I’m 15 days late on my period and reason I haven’t tested is I have irregular periods. My last period was October 10th and my O day was November 9th. My cervix is very high and soft when I mean high meaning I can barley feel it. I’m having lots of acne thinking maybe AF is coming but she’s yet to show her ugly face. Haha anyways what do you think is it time to test or wait it out until I’m 3 weeks late?????

  • Emily

    Oh and not to mention I’ve had heated flashes like crazy!!!!! I’ll be cold and then break out into a sweat out of no where..

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It wouldn’t hurt to test. If you are pregnant, you want to know as soon a possible so you can get the correct prenatal care. If you turn out not to be pregnant, are you taking anything to help regulate your cycle? Do you know what is causing your irregularity?

  • Kailee

    I have 4 children but it’s been over 5 years since the last, I had an early miscarriage in the middle of October. I checked this cervical position thing before that pregnany tested positive and my cervix was high and soft. My period is now due in 4 days and I checked the cervix position and it’s very high and kind of soft. I don’t have any other syptoms, other than feeling crampy on and off which usually indicates my period coming. I don’t know if I’m now pregnant, if I am I am scared of another miscarriage because of the cramping. I had sex a few days ago and the semen looked like there was pink mixed in with it (from me) I thought my period would start early. My question is, is there any reason the cervix would be so high if I’m NOT pregnant? What position should the cervix be in right before menstruation?

  • Kailee

    I think it is helpful for people to follow up on whether they were pregnant or not so women reading this can compare syptoms. It’s now Monday and my period is due in 2 days (Wednesday). I was getting anxious so I took a cheap test this morning and I could not tell if it was positive or not, I wasn’t sure if I was imagining it (it was less than faint line). I went to the store and got a Clear Blue Advanced Digital pregnancy test and waited 2 hours to pee. I just took it and it’s positive pregnant 1-2 weeks. So I guess for me this high cervix as pregnancy sign is accurate but I don’t know what the position of my cervix is when not pregnant cause I only checked it twice both times when I was pregnant. Hope this helps someone. I’ll keep posted if I have a miscarriage because I’m very nervous about that.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Congratulations Kailee :) During menstruation, the cervix is typically the lowest it will be during the cycle. When it actually drops is variable from woman to woman. The blood that you saw in the semen could have been blood from implantation bleeding. Here’s to a happy, healthy nine months for you and your growing family!

    Hi, I’m 29 and ttc, I’m due 4 my period in 4 days but 4 over the last week I have been experiencing symptoms more like early pregnancy rather than my predictable pms, I checked my cervix and it’s medium height but firm, my breasts hav been overly sensitive and iv experienced slight pinching feelings in my lower abdomen! I’ve been rather moody and tired lately aswell! 4 me, I log my cycle monthly and it seems these symptoms r similar but way 2 early 4 me 2 b pms! Can anyone tell me if this sounds like I’m might be pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Do you know if you had sex around when you were ovulating? If you did, then it could be pregnancy symptoms. If you really are eager to find out, you could probably test in a day or two and get accurate results. Good Luck!

  • oggie001

    I’ve had unprotected sex at least every second day since my last period, we’ve been trying 4 at least 4 months and I haven’t felt like this b4! I’m so nervous that I might just b getting my hopes up! And dreading if I do get my period! What hpt due u recommend 4 the most accurate results?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Since you are going to want to test really soon, the drugstore brands I recommend are either clearblue or first response. They both are reliable.

    I need a second opinion please. Right now I am on day 22 of my cycle. We had unprotected sex on day 11 and 15 since I can be irregular on onvulation day. But following day 11 I had 2 days of egg wite CM. I am very tired lately, and my sense of smell has been strong. I also have slight cramps today. I checked my cervix and I could just reach it but it’s soft and slightly hard. Idk what to look for because I have not charted consistently.
    This will be my second child. But my first was unexpected and I only took a test on the day I was do for my pie roof because I had that feeling. Idk if I’m overthinking it because I really want this. It may be too soon to tell right?

    You times intercourse well for the fertile cervical mucus as sperm can survive up to 5 days after ejaculation. Day 22 is really too early to take a pregnancy test. The earliest I would suggest you test would be on the 24th of this month.

  • Shayla

    Thank you Vickie! I was trying to figure out if I timed it correctly since websites have many different answers. :) ok I will try and Wait!!

    So its now the day before my period is due, I checked my cervix again as I was feeling a bit more energy 2day, not as moody as I have been in the last week or so and my breasts aren’t as tender as they were yesty, my cervix now feels soft at medium height and is very much so closed! I’ve been experiencing rather sharp but short period like pains the last 3 days and as embarrassing as it is, releasing gas seems to relieve the pains, I’m extremely constipated so I still feel very bloated, but laying down helps, I’m just waiting to see if AF arrives before I do a rest as I have read a bit about chemical pregnancy and now know I have had approx 3-4 this year, I’m scared I could be having another 1 and am dreading AF arrival, does this all sound normal for a healthy pregnancy?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you are sure you have chemical pregnancies, it might be a good idea to have a doctor check you out. You really want to know as soon as possible if you are pregnant so your doctor can monitor your progress. I’d say take a test and find out. If you aren’t pregnant this month, you might want to look into herbal fertility supplements to help balance your hormones and improve your egg quality and improve your uterine lining.

    I’m 2 days before my period is due and I’ve got a faint positive. Anyways that’s good but I’m worried as my cervix is low and I’ve got lower belly ache. I’ve already a 5 year old which I never had a problem with that pregnancy. After having my son we decided after 3 years to try for another 1 but sadly in the last 2 years had 3 miscarriages. I’m worried about this 1 with all that says about a low cervix. I never checked with any of my 4 other pregnancies it’s only with reading up on stuff to try and find why it’s happening I’ve checked my cervix. I’ve not told any1 even my partner and I’m not going to until I’m 8 weeks and Christmas is over. I got so angry and upset and took it out on him that I would rather no 1 knows so I can deal with it my self if the worst happens. Thanks if any1 can help

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I’m sorry I can’t offer much in the way of help. It must be hard to have to deal with this on your own. :( Maybe you need to contact your doctor? Considering your recurrent miscarriages, having a medical person available to confirm and check your hcg levels would be a good idea. Maybe your doctor can advise you on what is causing them. Sometime low progesterone is the problem and some doctors will prescribe that to help.

  • Vic

    Thanks for your reply. I did get referred after the 3rd miscarriage and was advised to take asprin the next time I was pregnant which i am taking. I’ve also get like a burning feeling when I know I’m going to miscarry then after the fizzing burning feeling moved to the left. I’ve emplained this to them but they didn’t seem concerned. The gyno said for me to have a smear so I booked in at the docs and they refused as they said the lab would refuse because I’m not due till feb and it would be 5 month to early. I’ve had all std tests done ( I shouldn’t have any as I’ve been with my partner 10 years) but I went ahead and did it. I just feel something isn’t right down there even when I’m not pregnant. I send regular urine tests on to check for infections because of the warm burning feeling yet everything comes back fine. I’ve had a scan to check my ovaries when I’ve not been pregnant. I’m rather going bonkers or something isn’t right

  • oggie001

    Hi again, I did a test this morning and it was negative, I still haven’t got my period and my breast tenderness is coming and going, I’m distraught and in tears as I was sure by this time It would be positive, I used a 1st response test that can b used upto 6 days before a missed period! What is wrong with me?? I feel like I’m going crazy!

  • Vic

    I’m pregnant just about think it will be 5 week on sat. My cervix is low & soft. Will be trying to get in the doctors tomorrow just for peace of mind. With my other 3 miscarried I just knew. I remember the 1st 1 I misscarried I said I know something’s not right and the same with the other 2. My friend said you can’t know just see how it goes. Now with this 1 I’ve not got that feeling. I just worry about the constant ache and low cervix. Be my first baby boy who’s 5 I never worried at all even when I had my over due appointment and they couldn’t find the heart beat I just knew everything was ok. The thing with my first he never really moved he was lazy haha. Now all this count the kicks is scary

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Have you been to see your doctor? Did the visit help alleviate some of your worries?

  • Vic

    No I’ve not been yet with it being Christmas I don’t think they will be open. I work nights but I’m off work Tuesday so will try and get an appointment then. I’ve told the other half because he’s on sex ban untill I’ve the all clear haha. My periods did skip weeks some months but this time I did that pregnancy test that was faint and it was the same a few days later but not as faint. I’m not going to do any more because I will worry if it’s faint again. They did say the next time I get pregnant they will do a 6 week scan. My last period was 22 November so not sure how far I am as my period could skip weeks anyway. I only tested early because I got some cheap ones off eBay . If you do count from my last period I would be 5 weeks today so hopefully they will scan me in a week. Although I’m not sure if it’s a good idea as I’ve seen it stressing people out because it was to early to find an heart beat. Arrrggg think if it’s ment to be it’s ment to be. No offence to any1 but for me I look after adults with challenging behaviour and I wouldn’t want a child with a disability because the world is a cruel place and I’ve worked with some right nasty staff that haven’t treated them right. If anything was wrong I’m glad the other pregnancys ended when they did

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I hope it all turns out okay for you and you get the confirmation you are looking for when you manage to get your doctor’s appointment.

  • Vic

    Thanks. I’ve been today and he told me to book in with the midwife. She’s booked up in jan but the receptionist was helpful and said she will get her to ring me tomorrow and hopefully arrange an early scan. The doctor did say he didn’t really want to offer me 1. But there again I didn’t tell him any problems because he’s male and I didn’t feel like I could talk to him. Although he seen on my notes the gyno requested I have an early scan so abit strange.

  • jordan sparks

    What is high ?? I feel that im pregnant but csnt test cuz to early .. When i check its not as hard as it was lass month . i cant test yet so i tried the home bleach pregnancy test .

    Maybe she’s got bad morning sickness and unbearable symptoms that are making her unhappy at the moment she wrote it, you all sort of jumped the gun there unless there’s a comment I didn’t see saying otherwise.

    Did you end up being pregnant?

  • HaleyPugs

    Hey everyone, this is my first post, and I was just curious if anyone had any insight. I was using the clearblue fertility monitor, which tracks LH surges, and better predicts ovulation. My period was due yesterday and hasn’t come yet. I am more moody than I have ever been in my life. Breasts are sore, nipples are tender, and light pelvic cramping. Cervix is high, soft and closed, and my temp. Is normally between 96.1 – 97.5, it spiked at 98.6 during ovulation, and two days post ovul. it was 97.9, and the next 10 days it has been between 98.5 – 98.9. I’ve taken 3 tests that have all said negative. I know I’m fertile, I’ve donated my eggs many many times, and I have an extremely high follicle count in each ovary. Should I just wait and see what happens and keep testing? Any suggestions would be great, thank you!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well it definitely sounds like something is going on with you. :) As you already know, pregnancy is always possible until your period actually arrives. Not much you can do but wait some and test again unfortunately. And if you don’t get your period or a positive test, a doctor’s visit might be in order to figure out what is going on.

  • zera

    I know that feeling

  • Vic

    I’m 6 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I’m waiting on my first appointment with the midwife in a weeks time. My urine as white floating stuff init, does anybody know what this is? I’ve had 3 miscarriages before and do remember having this the day before I started bleeding with the last 1. I do have ache in my lower belly but I’ve had this for ages anyway. Thanks

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, I don’t know what to tell you. This is something you really need to discuss with your midwife. Good Luck!

  • Kailee

    Thank you!! I thought I would post an update…on Christmas Eve I had sex for the first time since knowing I was pregnant, I then proceeded to clean the house for several hours as guests would be coming over. In the late afternoon I showered and felt something odd slip out- it was a dime-size blood clot and a small gush of bright red blood. I went to the ER in tears. I was 6 weeks 0 days and my hcg was 30,000. They did an ultrasound and the doctor said with my days and hcg level I would probably miscarry because there was no heartbeat. The day after Christmas I spotted brown for a couple hours and thought it was starting. I was devastated for 5 days.
    At 5 days we got a new ultrasound- there was a heartbeat of 107. They said all was fine. A week and half later the doctor called and said I had a possible chorionic bump on my ultrasound which would greatly increase my chance of miscarriage. They were also considered of what they consider a “low heart rate”. Another agonizing 5 day wait. Had ultrasound yesterday, baby’s getting big, heart rate 173. And they think the bump is where the placenta is forming. I’ll be 9 weeks tomorrow, this has been so stressful but I hope will result in a healthy baby.

  • Kailee

    Sounds like you must be due around when I am (August 19 for me). I know what you mean by the burning sensation, my miscarriage in October felt like pins and needles in my uterus. I had a little this time but not that bad…I read that eating kale and spinach was a uterine stimulant that encourages bleeding, and I’d been eating both of those daily so I cut them out of my diet a couple weeks before I confirmed this pregnancy. Are u sure the sensation isn’t coming from your bladder? Are u drinking a lot of water? I’ve had a little burning weird feeling and although I’m slamming water, I don’t have a full-blown UTI, but there is bacteria in my urine for some reason my midwife told me. I’d try not to worry, these sensations could just be from your uterus growing and putting pressure on different things :)

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    As your period hasn’t arrived, maybe you need to go and see your doctor to see if they can figure out what is going on.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Until you get your period, if you have been having unprotected sex, the chance of you being pregnant is there. If you are concerned, you can book a visit with your doctor and hopefully get some answers that way.

  • Claire

    Hi, need some advise please
    Got the copper coil fitted for about 10mnths! Have normal periods lasting between 5-7days
    Had my last period 5jan n had sex with my partner though out the month, about 22jan I have been having really bad cramps on n off all day! They have now stopped. I also had a pink milky show on a wipe to a trip to the toilet. I’m due to start my period in 4 days! Hpt was negative. Been to doc for check up, as wasn’t used to this sort of cramp pains. They checked for infection n all clear, checked for coil threads and couldn’t find them, this could be due to how close I am to start my period n my cervix is low! But booked me in for a scan in three weeks to check coil is still all in place! I am going to toilet more, no extra smell no sickness not sure about breast could say there more sensitive no headache discharge is milky n some says watery! Tried to feel for cervix and can’t give an answer, does any one have any clues
    Thanks x

  • Nobody

    Oh please…my issue is medical. God can’t help me. We tried for two years before I finally went to the doctor to find out what was wrong. If Giod could help me he would’ve already. People like you need to think about how hurtful your words can be to others.

  • Jamiegrl

    Jesus gave me a son after 3 years of praying and doctors telling us we couldn’t have kids. Then He gave me a beautiful daughter. Now I am 10 weeks with my third baby and am searching out the way my cervix should feel because it was hard at week 6 and now it’s soft low and open since week 8.,, all websites say different things, since Jesus blessed me with this baby too I trust all will be well. Just curiously searching…ps Jesus is coming back soon and no one will suffer for any reason, well, those who love him and seek him…

  • Laci

    That comment was obviously not intended to hurt you in any way. God can do the impossible and I feel very sorry and ashamed for you. My husband and I have been trying for what feels like forever now and I have not once blamed God for not allowing this yet. I know mine will come when He says it’s time! A child is a Blessing from God and when you realize that, I hope you then get the child you have been desiring to have.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, if they can’t find the strings there is a chance that the coil became dislodged at some point. If that is the case, it’s possible that you could have become pregnant. Your period should be due around now… did you test again?

  • Radisha Rhone-Thames

    Well then you weren’t using them correctly if that has happened to you MULTIPLE times.

  • KBD2015

    Oops, disregard my last post. What I meant to say was as follows —–> Well then you were not using either method of pregnancy prevention correctly if that has happened to you MULTIPLE times… If the condom was not defective, and if you were using your birth control correctly, the chance of you becoming pregnant is very very very slim; Let alone it happening MULTIPLE times. A condom alone, if it doesn’t break during intercourse or slip off inside of you, should be enough to prevent you from becoming impregnated. Same with your method of birth control, if you are using BOTH correctly, it is almost physically impossible.o. As far as your know it all attitude toward that random person goes, they were just trying to give helpful advice. It seems as if you just feel like you’re the “exception” to human nature, which I am postive is not the case….

  • Reality Check

    3-4 dpo? Your cervix could still be in the position it was while you were ovulating. Even if you were pregnant it would not be high and soft already….. You wouldn’t had even implanted yet. Don’t let people give you false hope/info on the Internet…..

  • Reality Check

    That’s not completely true, why are you giving all of these women false information…. You are going to have some women thinking they are and aren’t pregnant left and right! You told that other lady at 3dpo to test in 6 days, and that her symptoms of her cervix may be “pregnancy related”… Which for one, totally contradicts whar you’re saying here, and two, when there is no way she would had even IMPLANTED yet. It can take up to 12 days to even implant so why the hell would you tell her to test at 9dpo…..? Most women will not even test POS even when they ARE preg at 9dpo! You are really going to mess women up mentally and emotionally, so how about not giving out information you are not 100% sure about…. Also, this exact statement you made right here is partly FALSE as well…. Every healthy pregnant woman’s cervix rises while pregnant. The only difference is that it could take a day after implantation – to months for that to occur! So obvious the woman you replied to hasn’t had it happen, YET, Hence why her cervix is still low (& note that she is also in very early pregnancy). But unless there is an issue further along with placenta placement or cervix placement your cervix does engorged with blood and it does rise. How much is rises depends on your body, however…. Please, Please, Please stop giving out information and answering EVERYONE’S questions with your answers (which are false which makes them your *OPINIONS* anyways) You definitely are not helping anyone out here. Last, with women who are desperately TTC, you could be playing with their emotions going out of your way to answer their questions and giving them false hope that they are or are not pregnant….

    When you ovulate, you will usually see clear stretchy cervical mucus. The type you are having now doesn’t sound like the fertile cervical mucus at ovulation. You should have been able to test now, as it has been a while since you posted this. Did you get a positive pregnancy test?

  • myoulzazong

    I just need more opinions on what’s happening to my body. I’m 7-8 weeks pregnant, and I originally went to the er yesterday for severe constipation. I had only gone once in about a 3 week time span, all the while taking stool softeners that are safe for pregnancy. Well, I received my diagnosis and treatment for that, and I thought I was all done. But they had done a vaginal ultrasound because I am so early. When I got home, I discovered I was bleeding very heavily. I figured it was because of the ultrasound, but I went back to be sure, because the bleeding was a dense deep red and was flowing, not spotting. I had a cervical exam at the hospital and another ultrasound, this time not a vaginal ultrasound. They found that my cervix is open, about a finger width. But the baby is attached, it’s heartbeat is strong, and was showing no sign of distress. They did believe that the bleeding was caused from the vaginal ultrasound, and I’ve stopped bleeding since, but obviously I’m terrified about what my open cervix means. I won’t be able to carry once the baby starts getting heavier unless my cervix changes, but I don’t know how likely that is. Has anyone ever gone through this and carried their baby to term? Or should I start mentally preparing myself to lose the baby?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I’m sorry you are so stressed out. I wouldn’t prepare to lose the baby. The doctors can do a procedure where they can close the cervix up if needed. It’s called a cervical cerclage http://americanpregnancy.org/pregnancy-complications/cervical-cerclage/

    You should talk to your OB about your fears so they can tell you how they can help you make it to term.
