Is my cervix suppose to be like this?

My hubby and I are TTC our 5th child. I am 9dpo and my cervix is still high, soft, and slightly open. Isn't it suppose to drop back down and get firm right before AF? I've had some other symptoms: VERY crampy, but not like AF cramps more like twinges kinda and an upset tummy. I'm hoping these are good signs!!

  • if you're pregnant, it won't be open.

  • Due to this variation between women, checking the position of your cervix to determine pregnancy is not a reliable indication of whether or not your are pregnant. More reliable ways to find out if you are pregnant is take a sensitive home pregnancy test or by visiting your doctor for a pregnancy blood test.

  • It can feel open on the outside but actually be closed. The cervix will move high, become soft on the outside but firm on the inside, and be like I said be closed on the inside at some point during pregnancy but unless you chart regularly you won't know if this is normal for you or if it's a pregnancy sign.

  • My cervix was the least reliable thing when TTC.....I got pregnant 3 times and my cervix was usually low and not very soft (it also was always a little open since I had previous kids). I used temping for my second and just "let it happen" the other times, would wake up and say "I think I am pregnant," I was RIGHT! I always had a "feeling" but never anything concrete until I finally got my BFP.
