High, Soft, Closed, and... not pregnant? Help please...
Over the last little while, I've noticed some traditional pregnancy symptoms pop up in my everyday life. On a list of 10, I would probably have 7 or 8 of them. However, one symptom I thought couldn't be explained away. When checking my cervix, I noticed it was high, soft and closed. It's been that way for about a week now, even though all my at home tests were coming up negative.
Being sick of conflicting evidences, I decided to bite the bullet and get my blood test done today. It was negative.
I've always had very irregular cycles, so I don't have that milestone to fall back on. But if my carefully calculated hypothetical timeline is even remotely correct, my "missed period" should have been about two weeks ago.
My question is this: what could cause my current cervical position? Should I trust the science behind the test and move on? Or do I trust my instincts and pursue the matter?
Yeah, I had a few other common pregnancy symptoms. Nausea, swollen breasts and darkened areolas, heightened sense of smell, constipation (I know, tmi :S) food cravings, fatigue, and pretty bad mood swings. All that, and my body just feels .... different. I can't quite put my finger on why, but I know it does.
The only thing keeping me from being sure is those darn negative tests.
