Just got back from a u/s and they said my cervix is in the "borderline" range, and it was measuring 2.5 - 2.7 cm. They never said the word funneling, but it looked funnel shaped to me. Of course in the last 10 mins I've become a google md (bad idea I know) and I am very scared of possible complications. It seems like the risk is substantial, though it could be a lot worse, and the thought of losing my baby at this stage is terrifying. I am 21 weeks today, so even that 28 week milestone seems light years away. Suddenly I feel so fragile, and I hate it. I drive many places every day for work, chug up and down stairs, and lug around a heavy bag.
Has anyone else dealt with a shortened cervix before? The u/s doctor said the only thing to look for was contractions, or, "if your water broke you would notice it." She said my regular doctor may want to see me to monitor things in the next couple of weeks, and I guess that's all I can do, but... I don't know, just scared, confused. My husband doesnt seem to get it and said "well that went pretty well." I am petite and only 5 ft tall, so maybe my cervix is naturally shorter? Well, I will stop rambling, but any thoughts?
