What's Your Story? Tell us. / Short Cervix
« on: March 14, 2019 at 08:05 PM »
Hi Everyone!
I’m just coming to terms with everything’s that’s happened over the past few days. On Monday, at 16 weeks, I went for a cervical scan at MFM. Unfortunately, it was discovered that I have a short cervix. Currently measuring 2.45 cm. I did have a LEEP procedure about two years ago, and a D&E last June, so I knew this was a possibility.
I was put on progesterone suppositories and bed rest for the foreseeable future. At this point, I will be monitored weekly for any changes in my cervix. My doctor doesn’t want to do a Cerclage because I have never experienced pre term labor before, and right now the risks outweigh the benefits.
I’m just feel really scared and really discouraged. I’m only 16 weeks, so I have at least 8 weeks before we even reach viability. There’s a lot of bed rest in my future. I’ve been super stressed and I’m just hoping with everything I have that this baby will keep cooking for as long as possible. I know I’ve read some really positive stories about women who went through the same thing, but there’s always a chance I won’t bring a baby home and that’s terrifying.
I’m trying my best to stay positive but it’s definitely hard!
