    Im reading it too!!! As understand when you ovulate your cervix is Soft (liike touching your cheek), high up (barely touchable sometimes), open with a slit or a small opening and wet with cervical fluid leaking out!

    I love this book so much, i tried for 2.5 years before using this book and got preg straight away, dont know if it was connected but i think it was!!!!

    I think straight after you have ovulated your cervix drops down the next day and is firm again.

    Hope this helps. xxx

    ok this is why I'm confused, I am 9 dpo and its so high I can hardly touch it but kinda firm. Shouldn't it have dropped by now? I am suppose to start on 8/26. I took a hpt yesterday after lunch and lots of tea drinking and it was a bfn... Should I just wait until the 23rd?

    For some ppl the hcg level takes longer to show on a pg test. i know for me my cervix jumps all around. after ovulation its supposed to get lower for af. but mine goes from high to low everyday several times a day. for pg its supposed to be high and soft and closed. but this happens at different times for each individual.

    mine always stays high for some reason..the only time it comes down is the day after AF starts...then as soon as its done, it goes back up. but around ovulation, i do notice it going much more higher, almost untouchable..and soft. after ovulation, it stays high but it gets more firm.

    of course its different for everyone..and like "soon2 b wifey" says, depending on the time if day, it can change.

    How do you feel for your cervix? I've tried but i haven't ever felt it, no matter how far up i feel!
    Do i have short fingers or a long vag? :dohh:
    Do you squat or lay down?
    Sorry if i'm being thick.

    I have to really reach for mine. Sitting on the potty is easier for me and I have to use my middle finger and can only touch the tip.

    if you have a hard time touching your cervix, squat right down to the floor and use your two longest fingers to find it. make sure your hands are clean as you can give yourself an infection and make sure you dont cut yourself with your nails.

    Its like the tip of your nose and sometimes its softer than that kinda like your check. My bbt went up higher today??? I'm 12 dpo and it went from 97.77 to 98.08? Wtf? Why would it go up? I expect af on the 26th but still no sign of her.
