21 w and short cervix
« on: November 13, 2012 at 03:39 PM »
Hi there
This is my story. I've been on bed rest for two weeks already for short cervix. I'm having twins boy and girl. Last week I had 1.63 and unfortunately this week when down to 1. I'm worried that something bad might happen to the babies but I'm being positive since despite of having a short cervix, I have it closed.
The dr suggested myye to stay calm since he has seen many women with short/ closed cervix who have made it almost until the end. So I'm hanging in there which that thought.
Any success story about short cervix, cerclage and bed rest?

Hi! I'm new but our situation is very similar. I'm 23 weeks with twin boys and just got put on bed rest with a 1.2 cervix and some funneling. I wanted to check in and see how ou are doing? I've read several success stories on this blog that are similar to yours, I was wondering what they thought the cause was, I have been diagnosed with irritable uterus, has your doctor mentioned that? Are you on anything. I had it with my 2 year old son but just took ibuprofen for 3 days and took it easy and carried him to 39 weeks. But on singletons they don't measure cervix so I have no idea what mine was. Anyway let me know if you're hanging on!!
