    What I know - it's very common. My OB described it like some people are right handed some are left handed, etc.

    It isn't a cause for concern. It can make earlier scans harder to see - saying that I had a heartbeat detected at 5 wks 4 days with DS1.

    When pregnant your uterus will naturally come forward as it grows up and out of your pelvis.

    I have one, and know all this because I have asked 😊

    @sunnygirl79 thanks for your reply.
    Just wondering if you ever tracked your CP throughout your cycle?
    I am TTC #2 after giving birth to our beautiful girl stillborn at 29 weeks. And have noticed my cervix is always high throughout my cycle. This is our firsf cycle TTC #2 and approx 6dpo and cervix is still high! Just wondering if this is because of my retroverted uterus?

    I have a retroverted uterus and yes my cervix stays high. I monitored for ovulation mainly through CM and tenderness as cervix position didn't help. So sorry to hear about your stillborn, wishing you all the love and hope that you have a healthy full term bub soon x

    I have a retroverted uterus. My cervix was always high during my cycle, surprising now that I'm pregnant it's not so high up. It flips forward usually by the start of 2nd trimester and there's a bit of speculation that some positions are better for conceiving.

    @babymummatobe congratulations on your pregnancy.

    Its so fascinating isnt it. In my first pregnancy it flipped forward sometime after 12 weeks. I wonder if there is any truth in the different positions.
