Not sure what this means *tmi adult content

I went to my ON yesterday and she checked my cerrvix and said that it was "soft" and that it was about 1cm in length and that the "top" was open but I was yet dialated but she could stick a finger in there if she tried but didn't want to. Not to sure what all that mental. Any ideas ladies? Thanks!

  • Why didn't you ask her at the time?

  • The cervix needs to be soft so the baby can pass through. It's getting shorter because the baby's head is pushing down on it. All it means is that your getting ready to start labor. It could take days or weeks, but still.

  • I did not ask then because I was more concerned about the biopsy she had just done, so my questions were more about that
