Pregnant with triplet.Have history of preterm labor 29 weeks (twins) due to rupture membrane.Is it important to do cervical cerclage? (cervix is fine)
Hmmmm. : Let's see. You had preterm labor at 29 weeks with twins and are pregnant with triplets? I'd go for cerclage given the risk of an incompetent cervix is present with 3 babies. I'm guessing you see a perinatologist? If that's what she/he is recommending, i'd sign up for it. Good luck. ...Read more
Anterior placenta previa with placental lake seen at 28w ultrasound, 2 D&Cs & no c-section hx. Any risk of placenta accreta? Best time to deliver?
Placenta Previa: Placenta previa occurs when the placenta is covering the opening of the cervix. Vaginal delivery is possible in mild cases of previa. Placenta accreta is a different condition where the placenta gets "stuck" to the uterus. While the risk of accreta increases when you have previa, that risk is low if you have never had a c-section before. Follow-up with your obstetrician regarding delivery dates. ...Read more
My cervix was 4cm at 20 weeks and water bag broke at 21 weeks cervix was 2cm. Is it incompetent cervix? can we go full term with incompetent cervix?
Highly suggestive: Your presentation is suggestive of a loss of cervical integrity. The regression back to 2cm occurred because the bag of water broke. PPROM at 21weeks in the face of cervical dilatation, unfortunately, carries a poor prognosis. However, subsequent pregnancies can be have very favorable outcomes when treated with progesterone and/or cerclage and serial cervical ultrasounds. ...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

U/s @23 weeks placenta 3.8cm from os-trans abdominal full bladder. At 28w different clinic transvaginal -3.4cm from os. Who is right? It's posterior
Irrelevant: Transvaginal ultrasounds is the best modality for assessing a placenta that is near the os (previa). However because your placenta is more than three centimeters away from the os on both scans, I would not worry about this finding of a difference as it does not matter. Make sure you don't have any bleeding though. Hope that helps and good luck. ...Read more
