around 8-10 weeks and My cervix has never been this open.

So I have taken a hpt that showed positive, I have to be around 8-10 weeks pregnant, but I have had cramping (some severe), no bleeding at all, and I can stick about 3/4 an inch of my finger into my cervix. What does this mean??? I also have a 4 year if that changes anything. My cervix has never been this open.

I hope that finger was clean! A doctor will be happy to see you for your first prenatal visit once you have missed a second period. You could perhaps run another hpt to see if you get a stronger, faster response.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.It's not unusual to have period-type cramps in early pregnancy as the fetus settles into the wall of the womb. This can also cause spotting. Although it is likely to be harmless, see a doctor if you have any bleeding. Also do ultrasonography to confirm the fetus viability.

Take care
