Post Some information for those who want to know ;) Marie, you might find them interesting

I noticed the questions about what the cervix feels like, etc, and did a bit of research. I havent been able to find an acceptable link with a pic of anatomy on it for the "where" question, but I did find these.

This first link is a photo of a real cervix, and not for those who are faint of heart! But, if you dont mind the very graphic, it will give you an idea of what a cervix looks like. It is a closeup shot, so it is not actual size, but you will get the idea [url=""][/url]

This second link is to a network of sites (OK'd by the mod) that has a great deal of information about the female body, hormones, etc. [url=""][/url] It is probably a bit more suited to those who dont know much about how their body works, but I found it pretty interesting and detailed. We ought to add this second link to the "Info for teens" thread!

Angel - thanks for all the research! I looked at the pic of the cervix, and even at the cancerous ones. You're right, it's not for the faint of heart. It does make me want to learn more though. We should show these teenage girls what a cancerous cervix looks like. Thanks again!!

I have seen this pic so thanks to your description on how to check and remembering this pic from highschool I was able to easily understand what I felt at the beginning of this pregnancy. THANKS FOR THE LINK!!!! I could not find anything on checking your own for dialation though. I actually just need to know how many fingers/finger tips = cm. Like 1 finger tip = 2cm? That type of scale. Do you know? I think the 2 finger tips spread completely apart (index and middle fingers) like a spread apart peace sign is 10cm right?

It's A Boy!!
