Hi i'm 30+4 weeks pregnant and was admitted to hopsital this afternoon with cramps and extra discharge, after giving a sample found out i had protein x2 and blood in my waters. Dr done an internal and it said on my notes cervix closed but soft admits fingertips.

this means that your cervix is ' ripening & and softening ready for when you go into labour . it begins to dilate a bit which is what is meant by it admitting fingers. Its all normal!!

Isn't it a bit early?

may be a little early but doesn't mean to say anything will happen. midwife will probably just want to keep a close eye on you !

One good thing if it happens early, baby is head down!!!
