Question CP?

OK experts I need some answers about CP. When I do it yesterday and today I feel something really low and really hard, would that be my cervix? I know it is usually not as hard as it is now! Also do I have to go higher to find out if it is open or closed? I cant tell I dont guess. What do you think?

If it's low and firm, it's likely closed. You won't find a gaping hole or anything--when mine was its most open, it was about a half-finger-width wide. Once you find your cervix, you've found the opening.

This is why it takes a while (3-6 cycles) to figure out YOUR cervical position at different times in your cycle. Each cervix is different (that sounds funny
 
) so it'll take time to make sense of yours.

I'd say you found it! Deanna is right, you'd feel the opening when you find it.

"deanna" is it sometimes hard to reach? Like its high up there? I think I found my the last few days and it was really low and hard,like cartlige.Before I have never been able to reach it.
 
Unless I'm not doing it right or I found something else
