Good luck i hope this helps.

The Third Indicator - Cervical Position
Logging the position of your cervix on your fertility spreadsheet is a key element in charting.  When your cervical position rises within your body, the opening gets larger and feels soft to the touch, this is an indication of being at your most fertile time.  This page will give you information on the different positions, the changes of the opening as well as the feel of your cervix during your monthly cycle. 

Cervix is Low, Hard & Closed
After your menstrual period you will begin to start checking your cervical position.  At this time the position of your cervix will be low within your body and easily reached with your fingertips.  The opening to your cervix will be closed - feeling like a small slit or a tiny hole.  The feel of your cervix will be rather hard to the touch.  It will feel almost like touching the tip of your nose.   During this phase (the first phase within your cycle) you are considered infertile.

Cervix is High, Soft & Open
Right before ovulation occurs the amount of estrogen increases within your body.  This causes your cervix to rise.  When checking your cervical position, you will notice that it will move from the lowest point to mid and then extremely high.  At the highest point it may be difficult to reach your cervix with your fingertips.  The opening of your cervix increases making the slit or tiny hole much larger.  The feel of your cervix is much softer now almost like touching your bottom lip. This is an indication of your peak or most fertile time.  The cervix will remain high until you ovulate - after which estrogen subsides and the hormone progesterone is released causing your cervix to return to its low. closed and hard position.

I couldn't figure it out at first, either.  After doing it for a month or so, I'm much better at knowing what's high or low for me.  It's that whole middle/medium thing I waffle on!
