My MW has been able to feel babies head since 37 weeks when I had her start checking my cervix. It's only about 50% effaced...but still really far back. She tried to do a sweep the other day and couldn't quite reach....but I also have a tilted uterus which makes the cervix harder to reach during paps.

I know her head is low now because she likes to move it and it's very uncomfortable...lol! I haven't felt myself simply cuz I can't reach...lol!

I thought I would attempt to check my own cervix and as soon as I put in fingers about half a finger in I could feel babes head obviously covered with tissu and couldn't get far back to see if I was dilated or not .
Is this normal??
how deep did you go? I can never stick my finger anywhere in there..I would be all weirded out and not sure what I am feeling.
Not very far at all half a finger .

There.s no chance I'll be able to feel my baby's head - I was told by gynae that I have a long vagina and a tilted cervix....
