Not much: I'm so sorry you're going through this, it must be nerve wracking. Your cervix is shortening. I'm sure you're being followed by a maternal fetal medicine specialist, if not, consider a consultation with one. Hopefully the cervix doesn't continue to shorten. Definitely get steroids for fetal lung maturity at 24 weeks. Pelvic rest and off work. Progesterone can't hurt, and may help. Good luck! ...Read more

What you described!: If your cervix changed that dramatically before your eyes you are at risk for Pre-term labor and delivery. You will need to be watched closely. Depending upon where you are at in the pregnancy, a cervical length of 2.5 cm or less may alert your doctor that you may need a stich in the cervix called a 'cerclage' to keep it closed until 36 weeks. ...Read more

Have IC.21 weeks cervix 23mm,funneling 22mm.no bulging sac.placed emergent cerclage successfully.strict bedrest. % chance of carrying at least 28wks?

Likely very good: You should have a very good chance of reaching 28 weeks and longer. The current literature would support your management, with a cerclage placed for your history of an incompetent cervix. However, current literature would take exception to the "strict bed-rest" as that will increase the risk for complications such as a DVT while not decreasing the risk for premature or preterm delivery. ...Read more

I had my anatomy Scan yesterday @ 22 weeks and was told my cervix was funneling but that my cervix measured 32. Should I be worried about preterm labor? My doc said she will check cervical length again in 4 weeks. I am afraid that that is too long to wait

Its not too worrisom: Despite the funnel, a cervical length of 32 mm is still pretty long, and suggestive that your risk of preterm birth is not substantially elevated. Rechecking it in 4 weeks is reasonable but it is not a strongly dangerous finding. The most important finding is closed length, and a 32 mm length at 22 weeks is fine. ...Read more

I'll be 16 weeks in 2 days. How would I know if my cervix with cerclage is funneling and what causes it, how can I avoid it?

I'll be 16 weeks in 2 days. How would I know if my cervix with cerclage is funneling and what causes it, how can I avoid it?

By sonogram: The issue with an incompetent cervix is that the cervix softens and dilates without contractions and without the patient being aware. The only way to know is for your doctor to perform sonographic measurements of the cervical length. Ask your doctor if you are a candidate for 17 OH Progesterone injections too. ...Read more
