Pre-labor question. Probably a stupid one.

For both of my last weekly appointments I was slightly dilated and softening. And I felt like I was ready to have a baby ANY day. My pelvis had been under immense pressure, etc.

I'm 39 weeks now and I don't feel like my body is ready at all. I hurt less than I did two weeks ago. I just don't feel like it's going to happen. Is it possible that cervix progress can reverse??

I have my next appointment tomorrow and I'll probably cry if the doctor tells me not only have I not made progress but I've moved backwards.

I would just not get a cervical check, honestly Checking can introduce all kinds of bacteria to your body and it can cause unneeded stress! Your body will go into labor when it's ready, which for most first time moms is around 41w3d!

But to answer your question, I have heard of cervical regression, but it's usually while mom is in active labor. I hope you stick around and ask any other questions you might have!!

And progress/lack of progress when you aren't in active labor doesn't mean anything. It doesn't indicate if you'll go into labor soon or if your labor will be quick or easy or anything like that.

With my son, my water broke when I was 1cm. With my daughter, I had an appointment in the morning and was 1cm/50% and then I went into labor that evening. So don't get discouraged if there aren't any changes.

No it isn't possible for it to go back, however different checkers can find different things, so you can be told you'll be at one point and then another, it's no fun. Cervix checks give me hope at the end, but if they're too frequent they aren't good.
