    What is a favourable cervix???

    I've read this in a couple of threads lately and I have no idea what it means!!!

    I'm worried that as a B&B addict I do not know this term :haha: :haha:

    Well I don't know the technical details, but I know that it basically means how ready you are for labour... how high your cervix is, how open etc. The more favourable your cervix is, the more ready you are to have your baby. Hope that helps!!

    I was told yesterday mine was unfavourable! I didn't have a clue what it meant so got googling!

    From what I can work out if it's unfavourable it's closed and your not ready for a sweep/induction etc.

    Favourable is obviously the opposite!!

    I saw on a sheet of paper at the hospital the phrase 'imcompetant cervix' that one got me wondering!!

    Incompetent lol, here's betting I've got one of those!!!

    I don't like to google because I always find things that scare me....and I was pretty worried about the images! x
