    Please don't check your cervix at this stage!!! The risk of introducing infection is quite high, I happened to be talking to my mum about it yesterday, and she said that you should only have a speculum examination until your in labour because even a midwife poking a gloved hand up there could risk infection.

    Mind you with ur BHs it couldnt mean shes on her way pretty soon!

    It never goes completely closed after first baby so 2cm dilated all the time might be normal for you - I had a check the other day too (oops) and was surprised I could also put a full fingertip in there and that I could reach it at all!

    Ooh scary! Well I had it checked last year and it was totally closed, so maybe it's just opened a little bit recently but not as much as it feels.

    God why can't we just have a little digital monitor that tells us everything we need to know that's going on in our bodies!!!! X
