So I am currently TTC and have been paying a lot of attention to my cervix and cervical fluid. A few days ago (right around the time I suspected ovulation) my cervix felt high and open and around the opening I felt a bit of...roughness?
Any idea what this might be?
I have previously been pregnant (2 years ago), and fully dilated at birth but ended up with a c-section, could it be from the dilation of the cervix?
What I'm feeling feels a little like this (NSFW) cervix looks : www.beautifulcervix.com/cervix-photo-gal
To a much lesser extent, and just on the inside of the opening.
Currently, I'm what I believe to be between 5 -7 DPO and my cervix feels lower, softer but still somewhat open. So with the roughness and open cervix should I be concerned?
I'm also having a bit of cramping, both sides of my lower abdomen, just quick sharp pains (not very intense) that sometime radiate into my upper thighs as a dull pain. I feel like it's too early to take a pregnancy test--- could this be implantation?
I don't remember any of this with my last pregnancy, I think I'm being overly in tune with my body.
I will be seeing my midwife not to far from now so I will ask her, but I would like either my mind to be eased or a fire under my ass to go see a doctor.
