Have any of you checked your own cervix in late pregnancy for dilation? I used to check it to determine when I was ovulating, and I've been really curious to see if I could check it now at 34 weeks.
Well, I just tried it for the first time because I've been losing tiny pieces of my mucus plug here and there for a few days now - so I suspected I was dilating a little. It was much tougher to reach than I expected! However, I managed, and I think I'm 2cm dilated! What I felt was a little opening that I could fit 2 fingers in. When I stretched it a little, it felt like a tiny elastic band. This IS what my cervix would feel like, right?
I hope I'm right because the idea of being 2 cms already is exciting!
