    Red face Silly TMI question...

    This is rather embarrassing...

    Last night I was... doing it myself... and i noticed my cervix felt open. As in was actually able to put 2 fingers into it (sorry, no better way to explain it). I thought it should be closed?! Obviously there is something up there somewhere but I thought the whole thing was meant to be closed? And yeah, 2 fingers in width.

    I would go and see your doctor. With 13 weeks left to go...I don't think you should be dilated!

    If you've had previous natural deliveries I'm sure I've read it is natural for the cervix to not be as tightly closed as with someone that hasn't BUT that being said definitely see your care provider incase it is more than that.

    Good luck.

    I've never had much luck with the whole cervix finding thing but here is a lovely site with lots of photos of cervix's at different stages of different women's life and cycles. It may give you a better idea of what you're feeling exactly.

    Only follow if you are prepared for graphic photos: CLICK.

    At least call your hospital, I'm sure they'll give you a clearer idea of what you're feeling.

    don't feel like an idiot, it's probably a good thing that you've found it if something is happening that shouldn't. Good luck.

    Thanks Sam coupled with the fact my midwife is already concerned and the fact i have started getting period pain on and off for the last few days and am having some back pains and stuff today. Nothing regular nor is it getting worse so not going to freak out unless it does start changing.

    If you've given birth before its totally normal to dilate a while before labour begins. It does seem like a long time before your due date though...

    I was 2 cm and could be stretched to 3 at 36 weeks. I would check with your care provider though with so long to go still.

    My midwife has been concerned for a while that I will go early. My pains have started increasing and are quite regular so I'm going to go get checked.
