Usually you cannot feel it. If you are "getting close" then you may feel a heaviness in your pelvic area, but thats just the baby moving downward. If you think you can feel something strange check with your Dr. Now, if you mean to actualy feel it with your fingers then I will tell you what I can remember of what my Dr said. She said that your cervix is like the tip of your nose and feels like a crease across the middle of the tip. When you are close to full term the tip gets softer and thins out and will feel smaller. When you dialate the crease opens up and that "hole" is what they measure to determine how much you are dialated.
