Does this mean my cervix is effacing/dilating?
I remember before I was pregnant, I could easily feel my cervix - firm little bullet-shaped peice of muscle.  For a while, it turned all mushy and definitely got shorter and harder to reach.  Now I can't feel it at all.  Anyone have this experience?  Sorry if TMI.  Does this mean I am dilating or effacing?

When I was pregnant I couldn't reach my cervix anymore, it was too high up unless squatting. Even then was hard to reach. That was up to 12 wks.

Everyone's cervix moves very very high during pg.  No, it does not mean you're dilating - it just means you're pg.  :-)

I am not too sure on how I could tell if my cervix is too high. I don't even believe I know what that means? Could someone explain? lol. I know that I haven't been sexually active and I have been feeling some pain for instance when I wipe myself after using the restroom or when I go to sit down. I just am not sure if it means anything?
