Question cervical check & dialation question

Okay so I work a lot better visually “diagram” below:

Feet------Head

Thigh-vagina-seal for cervix-cervix-baby

Here is what I had yesterday am:

Thigh-vagina-2nd entrance (cervix?)-mush
I didn't have to force anything; my finger slid right in (tilted to the left)

Am I dilating?

Sorry I am going by what I felt. I have NO IDEA what my anatomy should be.

1st "entrance" would be the lips (hotdog bun /what you see between your legs)

2nd "entrance" would be the fact that i didn't hit a wall or tip of a nose. I guess what everyone calls the center/hole of a donut. There was something else that i entered...and that is where the mush, wet cake mix feeling was.

i know a lot of analogies; sorry

Re: cervical check & dialation question

sounds like dialation to me and you probly felt the mucus of the mucus plug as the cake batter stuff and if you could get a whole finger in your probly about 2cm. I walked around for 4 weeks 2 cm and for 2 weeks at about 4cm! But id say take it easy momma, you need just a couple more weeks!
I tried to check myself yesterday and i couldnt even find my cervix! It was WAY to high still. i have 5+ weeks left though and not 3 or 4 like you do!

Yes, you are dilating. But that doesn't mean you are going to go into labor any time soon.

oh yes, i know about the dilation, but not actually going into labor.

thank you for the site. I had a mom growing up, but she didn't teach me squat!

Re: cervical check & dialation question

You were in the cervix when your finger slid in right? Yes mushy cervix is good i think that shows effacement but not sure. Only time i felt mine was when i was 1 cm and 50% effaced I was 32 weeks when that happened but was probably 35 or 36 weeks when I actually felt. It does sound like dialation though. BTW my DD was born at 37 weeks 3 days after a totally of 11 weeks of preterm labor and 5 weeks dialated some so means nothing really. My water broke day before and I was still 1 cm when I got to hospital 30 or so min later though by then I think I was 75% effaced..hard to remember 7 almost 8 years later.

Re: cervical check & dialation question

sounds like it but I am not sure bc I always have a hard time reaching my cervix.. I have stubby fingers..

I was checking the other night and right in front of my cervix, like through the roof of my vaginal wall (does that make sense??) I can feel Athena's head.. like if I push on it, she moves so I know she is LOW and I feel like I am walking with a cantaloupe in my groin heehee

Anyway I tried again the next day and same thing but I propped my leg up and could finally reach my cervix.. I couldn't reach well enough to make out "donut" or what not but it was VERY soft and ripe.. yay! Now if I could just figure out how to judge how long and/or dilated it is hehe

We are getting close hon, I am sure there is a lot of ripening and effacing going on for both of us!
