    Default Open cervix

    I'm 18 weeks at the moment and I noticed my cervix is open this morning. Throughout ttc both for this baby and my first I regularly checked my cervix and cm and have never felt it this open before.

    Please tell me this is normal. Can the front part be open but the bit close to Bub be close? I made the mistake of googling..

    Yes, I'm sure your inner os is still closed... Don't stress unless you show any signs of early labour.

    Hopefully your right. I feel a touch crampy but no spotting or anything.

    I know I would worry so maybe call your healthcare provider or go to ED. I have no experience though.

    If you're worried, go see your healthcare provider.

    I think it's quite normal especially for second babies. Mine feels really open sometimes, I assume it's when my mucus plug is regenerating, it opens to let out the old stuff.
