32 weeks & baby at cervix???


went for a scan yesterday to check on placenta. it is now no longer too low and baby is in the 50th percentile for size!!!

what i'm curious about is that the baby's head is right at the cervix. i thought that this happens when the baby drops. i can definitely feel movement around this area.

the dr. didn't say the baby had dropped and didn't seem concerned. so, am i to assume this is normal?

i thought i understood some of the anatomy, but now i'm a bit confused.

thoughts??? thanks

It's ok for the baby's head to be at the cervix. At 32 weeks, the baby is probably still moving all over the place. You'll definitely know when the baby truly drops. The head comes much lower into the pelvis, creating LOTS of pressure, and some difficulty walking.

Im not sure if my baby has dropped or not. But my baby has been close to cervix since my 18week ultrasound and everytime at 27,28,34. So its been normal for me.

Also i have this where it feels like my leg is going to be detached from my hip and i have to walk with a limp or it hurts to put full pressure down on the leg. my doctor says thats the joints loosening up.

i hear you girls on the harder to walk situation. my hips don't hurt so much...but my lower pubic bone/groin area hurts. i feel it especially when i'm putting on my pants, shoes, etc. i've got the slow/waddle happening too.

the movement last night was crazy...i could really feel her moving around the cervix area. didn't really hurt, but it also didn't feel good. just strange.

it's just all so surreal.

be well

glad your placenta is no longer too low. i think the position of your baby is normal
