Posterior Cervix

cyclemom - February 12

So I will be 40 weeks on Wed. and am depressed because at my appointment today there was no change in my cervix. Since I was 35 weeks, my baby dropped to station -1 and is now station 0(fully engaged). I have been 100% effaced since 36 weeks. However, my cervix is posterior and behind my baby's head. Since his head is so low and dropping even lower, my Dr. can't even reach my cervix!! She said that as labor begins, my cervix should move to the front. I am so frustrated!! Has anyone else had a posterior cervix? Any info would be great. I am getting really anxious to meet my baby!!

If I understand what I've been told correctly, it's not uncommon for the cervix to be posterior until actual labor begins. From what I've heard labor often is need to not only dilate you but to also bring the cervix forward and into a more anterior position. So, from what I've heard you have nothing to worry about and the cervix being posterior right now shouldn't really have any effect on when you actually have your baby, as you'll probably have to be in labor for it to move forward anyways. GL and I hope it happens for you soon.

My sister just had a baby.. she was 4 cms dialated and her cervix was still posterior. She was in hard labour and it was still posterior.. after they broke her water.. thats when it started coming forward. It can happen at any time. Try not to worry. ~Kristin~
