open cervix, maybe in early pregnancy

I'm quite worried at the moment, just googled open cervix and early pregnancy, and it said it would probably lead to a miscarriage.

I am currently on cd31, not sure when AF is supposed to arrive, think I may be pregnant, getting quite a lot of symptoms, such as nausea, bloating, funny cramps etc.  

But, I have noticed the last few days that my cervix is high and open.  Has anyone had this and taken baby to full term?

I had a m/c a year ago, and don't want another.  If anyone can shed some light, please do.

Thanks

Just a little curious.....how do you know if your cervix is open??  ive been hearing alot of women talking about that lately??  Ive been having alot of problems with my pregnancy...4 u/s's so far and they have not checked my cervix.  Im 10 weeks along.  Would an ultrasound show an open or closed cervix in an u/s?  I hope you dont mind me asking you a question.  I just dont know the answer.

I don't think you can really tell yourself if your cervix is open.  I have cervical prolapse from my first pregnancy and during different times of my cycle I can actually feel it and sometimes it drops out of my body.  Very gross I know!  Anyway, I was worried this pregnancy because I had a miscarriage or chemical pregnancy in June and was concerned it was because my cervix was low....When I am able to feel it it always felt very open to me.  Well, after getting pregnant this time (now 18 weeks) I told my concerns to my doctor and the base part that I was feeling that I thought was open isn't actually your cervix being open.  Most people have a fairly long cervix, longer than you would be able to feel with your fingers.  I had an ultrasound and found that I do have a normal, long cervix and it is closed.  

When I was waiting for my positive pregnancy test this time around, I thought for sure I wasn't pregnant because my cervix felt open and high, but I was.  

Unless you have a very abnormally short cervix, I doubt you are feeling if it is open.  A short cervix can cause msicarrige or preterm birth though.

I have known I had an open cervex since I was 28 weeks when I went into preterm labor. I have been 2cm & 50 percent effaced since then. I am now 37 weeks & go to get checked today. I have been on bedrest since 28 weeks & meds to stop contractions. I would talk to your Dr. They can stich you if they think it will be a problem!

im not sure how early they do this, but ive heard of women getting their cervix stitched together to allow the pregnancy to continue, if you are pregnant i would go to the doctor immdiatly and see what they can do for you, good luck!!!!

Thanks ladies, I called the doctor today, and they can't get me in until next week, or they will call me if anybody cancels.  But I'm sure that will be a list as well.

I felt my cervix with my finger and it felt open to me, maybe it opens in a different place.  You have eased my mind a bit.

It got me so worried because I kept on thinking that the ongoing sexual abuse I had as a child may have caused it to be open.

I'll guess I'll have to wait until I see the doctor to fully ease my mind.

Thankyou again.
