What's Your Story? Tell us. / Short cervix with twins
« Last post by Lauren237 on January 11, 2019 at 08:45 PM »
Hi all, I'm currently 29+5 weeks pregnant with di/di twins and have been on modified bed rest since 24 weeks.

My cervix length was completely normal at my 20 week ultrasound but had gone down to 1.4cm at 24 weeks. I was not a candidate for cerclage at that time, but immediately stopped working, started progesterone suppositories, and modified bed rest at home. I have been having weekly ultrasounds since 24 weeks and cervix length has remained stable so far!

I'm grateful that we have made it this far - at 24 weeks I thought 28 weeks seemed impossibly far away. However I still have quite a bit of anxiety (worse at night) and obviously want the twins to stay in for as long as possible. Also bed rest is hard! I haven't been sleeping well and have pretty bad hip/pelvic pain off and on. Any advice is appreciated!

All was well at my 2 weeks post cerclage check up. I am sad that they will no longer be doing ultrasounds to check my cervix since I do have the cerclage now. it was nice to see baby often.   :-\ Next ultrasound is 28 weeks (i am now 22 weeks). I finally got clear instructions for my modified activities, which was rest 18 hours (which includes sleep) and up for 3-5. Thank you all for yalls replies and I will try to keep updated. I am very happy to have joined this group.

What's Your Story? Tell us. / Re: Effacement and Shortened Dilated Cervix

Also to add to this what worries me most is that I feel a movement in my vagina sometimes. More like a vibration. About 2-3 times a day.
Does anyone else feel the same?
I've had no bleeding. No cramps. And the baby's movement is normal and else. Please help

What's Your Story? Tell us. / Effacement and Shortened Dilated Cervix
« Last post by Namk on January 11, 2019 at 03:25 AM »
Hi all. I'm new here.
My EDD: 04/04/19
During my regular visit to the doctor at 26w4d the doctor was stunned to see effacement and shortening of the cervix with .68mm dilation since my pregnancy was going normal till then.
I've been on progesterone shots and tablets ever since then.
Waiting to hear success stories.
I'm 31 years of age and hoping to keep the baby baking till atleast 34-36 weeks. Currently 28w0d

Congratulations Pixiejan! That’s so amazing you were able to keep cooking until 30 weeks!

Yay kttwins for making it to 28 weeks! Such a huge milestone for baby!

Also checking in, still on hospital bedrest (7 weeks and 2 days and counting!) currently 31+3 days now!

My favourite bedrest snacks have been cheese slices, popcorn and yogurt! I also have a stash of chocolate turtles in my room when I’m craving something sweet!

Hello! After a month in the hospital (preterm labor with twins starting at 23w2d) I am now home on strict bedrest. Today also marks 28 weeks! I have my first outpatient follow up appointment tomorrow and so far things seem to be going pretty well.
