On Wednesday I checked my cervix and discovered that it was extremely soft and squishy. I figured maybe it was just that day or the fact that I had just woken up, so I checked again the next morning. Still soft. And again after waking up this morning... STILL soft. Wondering if maybe it was the time of day, I decided to check this afternoon and... yep... still extremely soft.
I'm 21 weeks and worried that this could be a sign of a possible incompetent cervix. Its hard for me to tell if its any shorter than what it used to be, and because I've had a D&C in March, 6 months before I got pregnant with this little one, its also hard to tell whether it feels open, but it doesn't feel completely closed. There was even a pin sized little bump that I felt on it near the opening which wasn't there before. My culture came back clean, so I don't think its an STD but that also concerns me.
Could it be an incompetent cervix?
Should I call my doctor or the ER right away (since she probably went home and doesn't have an emergency number)?
Is it safe to wait another week for my next appointment or call on monday to ask whats going on?
*Edited to Add* My history: I had an early miscarriage in August of 2006, a D&C in March 2007. 6 months later I got pregnant with this little one. Earlier in pregnancy, my cervix was low and firm, although I haven't checked it since entering in the 2nd tri until now.
