Question Can cervical position indicate pregnancy?

Hello! I am on my fifth cycle of TTC, and I have a question. I am appx 10DPO and I noticed yesterday that my cervical position is high, soft, and closed. Most of the time at this point in my cycle I am low, firm, closed. The only other things that are going on is some CM that is slightly yellow, some mild uterine cramping (which comes and goes), and some upper thigh "cramping" (don't really know how else to describe it
) My main question is about the cervical position. Can this alone be a sign of pregnancy? What about the other things. Thanks in advance.

I know cervical changes can reflect pregnancy, but I don't think they're something you can detect by touch alone. My ob told me he can tell by a combination of color, texture and position.

Hi there! Welcome to TBC!

Cervical position can be an indication of pregnancy. After ovulation, the cervix often drops lower in the vagina and feels firm, like the tip of your nose. During pregnancy, the cervix will rise a bit and become softer, but the timing of this happening will vary from woman to woman. For some, this happens shortly before their period is due, but for others, this will not happen until quite a while after their pregnancy has been confirmed.

Cervical position can also feel differnt at different times of the day, so it's always best to pick a time and stick to it, and of course when checking cervical position should be done with very clean hands.

Hoping it's a good sign for you! Good luck!
