Week 21 and cervix is 6mm. I'm trying to stay positive,and will my cervix to lengthen by my appointment on Wednesday.

This week my plan is to find a new book to lose myself in. I feel like I've exhausted tv, movies, Netflix, Amazon, etc.

My favorite food is CAKE! However, I'm being good and watching that I get a balanced diet.

Preterm Labor: Anything and Everything / Short Cervix at 20 weeks 6mm
« on: January 12, 2018 at 01:27 AM »
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.
