my cervix is about 60-70% shorter
. It is still completely closed but she really wants me to see her backup OB so they can 'talk about it together.'
So, just wondering if my fellow MDC mammas have any input/info/sugg?!?
Hello, just wanted to let you know that I had a shorten cervix since a leep as well and carried my son to term (38 weeks) on total bedrest from 6months on and constant ultra sounds and monitoring of cervical length...
Then I was pregnant again 2 years later and lost my baby at 19 1/2 weeks. My cervix was fine on Friday at my ultra sound (everything Good) and on Monday I lost my baby quickly with out a lot of warning (incompetent cervix). It was horrible and I pray you never have to experience anything like that...
Now I am pregnant again (6 months after loss) and am 20 weeks pregnant. I had a cerclage put in at 14 weeks and so far so good. I would never want to go thru with what happened last time so I am glad this is available to me... I wish you luck in your decision. Just make sure you rest alot and take it easy because you need the extra time off your feet
. Please contact me if you need anything. Otherwise, I will post later and let you know how it's going. Blessings to you and the family
