Okay, I have been doing googling on a high cervix at 40 weeks, and it is not making me feel good! A lot of sites are saying things that I may need a c-section because of a high cervix? Is my cervix suppose to descend down? I thought labor was when the cervix shortens and dilates. So does it need to descend too? I guess I am confused. And now I am curious when my doctor said posterior, if she meant my baby is, or my cervix is (Or both?!). My appointment is on Monday, so I will able to clarify all this then, but I was curious if anyone had any knowledge about what a high-cervix really means, or maybe I should just stay away from google!

Don't let google scare you! I have a VERY posterior cervix and my doctor usually has to reach up and behind baby's head to even check me. With at least one of my labors the nurses thought I was going to take hours and hours because my cervix was still so far back -- he was born within the hour. For me all it's meant is thwt when my cervix gets in the right spot I usually dilate very quickly, so it's actually been a bonus for me! So don't stress, I'm sure yours will get where it belongs before much longer and you'll be holding your princess!

My doctor said the same thing, that she had to reach behind baby's head to check me. And she said "Your cervix is way up there in Alaska!" Haha!

Thanks for the reassurance! I just keep wondering about my labor and what it will be like, especially now that I am over due. I think for me, overdue=over-thinking every little thing!

My cervix was extremely high too. I got induced and had a vaginal birth. Good luck
