Title: Short Cervix at 20 weeks 6mm
Post by: 1sttimemomwatson on January 11, 2018 at 10:27 PM
So I'm expecting my first child and I'm 20 weeks and 5 days. I'm currently high risk because of my shortened cervix but also because my baby has been found to have a heart defect.
My doctor currently has me on modified bedrest. I'm also taking progesterone vaginal inserts, Indomethacin, and a Pessary inserted.
I'm worried about going into preterm labor, especially since my baby needs to cook as long as possible to be strong for surgery.

Has anyone had luck relaxing their cervix, enough to show lengthening? Has anyone been able to make it to full term with this much shortening?

Help! I need some other mamas and their stories.
