The cervical opening should be small in the early stages of pregnancy. A closed cervix is a good indicator of a healthy pregnancy.

When does the cervix close during pregnancy?

The cervix is always closed, it only starts opening towards the end of pregnancy just befor you go into labor. The mucus plug forms somewhere between 8 and 12 weeks. That completely is not true. The cervix is always open, only a tiny bit, or else sperm would have no way of entering. There is a tiny opening of the cervix at all times for sperm to enter, and for you to pass blood during a period. Once fertilization takes place, the cervix is "sealed" by what is known as a "mucous plug". During the early stages of labor, the mucous plug comes out which is one of the first signs a woman is truly in active labor. Once that happens, the cervix begins the dilate once contractions start being more persistent and close together, up until the baby is born if it is a normal pregnancy. If the cervix does not dilate, there are a number of things that can be done by a doctor to help the cervix to dilate. If everything fails, a C-Section will take place to deliver the baby. After birth, it takes a while for the cervix to completely close up again and it is extremely easy to get pregnant. Also, it is very easy for bacteria to get up into the cervix and cause infection, so all doctors recommend you do not take a bath or get in a jacuzzi for at least 6 wks. Also, if you dilate early way before time for the baby to be born, which is what I did, they also recommend (if your water breaks prematurely) to not sit down in a bath because bacteria can go up into your cervix and cause infection, not only in your uterus, but it may also spread to the baby.

Why would you have a pap smear during the last stages of a pregnancy?

Pap smears are done to detect cervical cancer and precancerous changes in the cervix. They are typically done during the earlier part of pregnancy, but may be done later if not done early.

What is placentas?

During pregnancy, the placenta attaches itself to the uterus to provide the developing fetus blood, oxygen, and nourishment as well as removing waste from your baby. The placenta may implant itself at a low position in the uterus, during the early stages of pregnancy. Normally, as the uterus begins to expand to provide more room for your baby, the placenta moves upward but away of the cervix. If it doesn't move away, it may be blocking the opening of the cervix. This is known as placenta previa. If this does occur, the placenta will detach itself from the uterus in advance as the cervix begins to open up for labor. Generally, placenta previa can be detected before any severe harm is caused.
