cervix length with fundal pressure
« on: June 16, 2014 at 12:37 PM »
Hi
My cervix length with fundal pressure is 2.4 cm but without pressure it us 3.4 cm
I am worried what does it mean.
What exactly does this fundal pressure tells...

I'm not sure exactly but what I do know is that my mfm pushes my belly down while doing a transvaginal sonogram of my cervix....to see if the cervix is handling the pressure or does it shorten when pressure is on cervix...pushing it down inf of mimics the contractions...if this makes any sense..

Thanks for the reply.
so if the length reduces drastically does it mean only it will happen
only during contraction or when I sit and stand..

Now you want to know what it means? ::) ....I just know that when he did put pressure on belly and cervix did not shorten while he pushed down he said that's a good sign that my cervix was handling the pressure...I should add that I have a cerclage so it could be he was testing that too...

Thanks for the reply Evelyn..
May be I should exercise more caution as mine decreases drastically with pressure..

Not really sure if its up to u being careful...think it's just how your body is...you probably have enough restrictions...wouldn't look for more...although you will learn your body what makes out contract etc...
