Making the Best of Bed Rest / Re: Monday Roll call for September 24, 2018
« on: September 25, 2018 at 03:51 PM »
Hi, I’m Alissa. I’m 23+4 weeks pregnant with my first pregnancy. I just got out on bedrest last week after my cervix shortened and I started contracting. It’s scary and nerve wracking and I’m in the process of switching to a hospital with level 4 NICU in case we don’t make it to 32 weeks. Hanging in there.

Preterm Labor: Anything and Everything / Shortening cervix
« on: September 20, 2018 at 03:04 PM »
Hey guys,
I’m new here and this is my first pregnancy. I just got back from my MFM appointment and my cervix was down to 3.1cm at 22+6 weeks. I went into labor and delivery just two days ago on Monday for some spotting and they told me my length was 4.3cm. Since then I’ve been having a lot of cervical pressure and Braxton Hicks but I wasn’t concerned. I started having measurements at 18 weeks and I’ve never been below 4.1cm. I’m just really scared that it’s going down so fast. The MFM doesn’t want to see me back for 3 weeks and I’m not currently on restricted activity. Should I seek a second opinion?
