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!!!!
