    Question What position should the cervix be in the first trimester?

    I am 6-weeks pregnant and want some insight on how your cervix supposed to feel and the position. Last 2 weeks or so it was high so i couldnt reach it. Now it at the point I can reach it so just wondering if this is normal.

    Your OB or the nurses that work for him/her can tell you. I also recommend the Pregnancy Bible - superior IMO to What to Expect.

    It is not the same for every woman because women are not all built exactly the same and have the same cervix or the same pregnancy etc etc.......

    The thing is worried won't save you from anything. Just be at peace. Also don't go poking your fingers around in there if you are worried.

    Gong through pregnancy and motherhood (so far) really helped me with my worrying -it's so bad for my health and such a waste of energy. I have little mantras I do when I start going down that boring, repetitive path of worrying like "oh please that's silly" -whatever works.

    All I know is the cervix is supposed to be closed. At 6 weeks I was spotting -talk about worried!
