Why does my uterus feel swelled?

Let me start by saying that I don't "feel" as though I am pregnant. I have been TTC for 4 months. I monitor my BBT, CM and cervical position. My periods have been abnormal lately. My usual cycle is 28 days but they have been 30-31 days the last 2 months. My BBT has remained above the coverline this cycle. And my "period" this month was only 2 days of light bleeding and 3 days of spotting (NOT requiring a pad or liner). Here's my concern~for the last several days my uterus has felt "swelled". Usually my cervics feels long until it's high and then I can even feel some length. But lately I can only feel the opening of my cervics and my uterus right behind the opening the cervics. I hope I am not being confusing. It just feels really different. I also have a reoccuring staph infection...not sure if it's related??? Any ideas would be great. I don't know many women who check their cervics.

See your doc then...  Are you on some kind of hormone to help you conceive?

I'm not on anything. It will be a little longer before I can see a doctor...in between insurance at the moment. Today my abdominal area seems very huge. I look 5 months pregnant! But my uterus no longer seems swelled. I wish I knew what is going on. I believe I have PCOS..don't know if that means anything. I had breast cancer and my sister had cervical cancer so this all makes me worry a little more.

I just found out today that I'm preg.  And I have that same swelling feeling, along with nausea, and tender breasts.  Just take a test, 1st response is the best, you can't go wrong...God Bless!

Thank you. I have taken two test and both BFN :(
But when I was pregnant with my DS I believe it took like 3 weeks longer (7wks preg) to detect the hcg. I was a month farther along than anyone thought.
Congratulations!!!!!!!! I am sooooo happy for you!!!!!!!!!!!!
