  • how do you know your cervix is flat? have you stuck your hand up there and felt? or do you mean your stomach is feeling flat and not showing as much as before? thats your uterus where the baby is and that happens sometimes.. sometimes if the baby is laying far back i just look kinda chunky and not pregnant. its normal.

  • I would think that it is your cervix changing for labor and all... but you are still early, so I would tell your doctor everything you feel and that you want her to check you. You can't really be too safe if your cervix is changing... not to scare you, but my curiosity got to me and I was researching 2nd trimester miscarriages and cervix changes could be a sign.

  • If you are talking about your actual cervix and you stuck your hand inside to feel it you could be doing a lot more harm then good. However if you are saying your tummy looks flatter then it is fine the baby could be just farther back then normal.

  • it really isn't any different than your doctor feeling... But it does introduce bacteria to your vagina, just like when your doctor does a vaginal exam. I would still suggest you talk to your doctor about the change in your cervix combined with the cramping. Has the cramping stopped?

  • The baby probably just moved to the back of the womb making your stomah feel flat... If your doctor says its okay... it probably is. But if you're really worried... go to the OB and have them check for a heartbeat. They won't tell you no, and you'll feel better.

  • You vagina gets shallower as your pregnancy progresses (the cervix gets lower). It's normal. If you're not feeling okay about this, have your doctor check it at your next appointment.
