That was surprising! (TMI)

So I've been have pretty constant contractions for three days now but they are all over the place time wise (10 - 40 mins a part). I was reading an article on signs if active labor and it said your cervix lowers/comes forward. At my dr appt on Tuesday the dr said my cervix was still high (2cm, 50% effaced, -2 station).

So while in the shower I decided to poke a finger in there to see if I could feel if my cervix dropped (sorry TMI). The baby's head is right there! W. T. F!!!! I knew she was sitting low but wasn't expecting to feel anything. It totally freaked me out. I won't be poking around anymore that's for sure.

  • OP, you gave yourself a cervix check? SG/Elisan style?? Lol

    Lmao! No not checking for dilation just looking for cervix location.

  • Lol at least you were in the shower so your hands were clean :P. I actually asked my doc for one at my last appointment and he said no... I think there is something wrong with my doctor.

  • OMG that would freak me out. I remember while DD was being born and I was pushing, the dr told me to reach down so I could feel her head on the way out. I just remember it feeling so soft and squishy! If I was at home and felt LO's head (even via an internal check) I would probably panic and want to run to L&D. ;)

    I didn't actually find a cervix in there anywhere that I could tell lol. When we were ttc DS I would check cervix location to help determine ovulation was coming so I figured this would be the same. I just felt a giant hard lump and freaked out. I guess it's a good thing DH didn't agree to sex last night. That would have probably traumatized the poor guy from sex of life lol

  • oh wow, how crazy!! haha.  That would freak me out too.
  • This now makes me wonder... The other day DH and I were having sex and he said he felt like he was poking the babies head... I mean I'm sure it was the cervix, and I was going to post about it, but then kinda forgot about it. I don't think he's traumatized yet, but all of a sudden I may be LOL

    Yeah I don't think I'll be asking for sex anymore. He would definitely be hitting her in the head.

    You know, people always say to have lots of sex toward the end to get things moving along, but my sister's OB actually told her the exact opposite.  He said he could so easily feel the baby's head during her cervical exam, that he advised them to abstain until he was born.
