I went in for a follow up scan today and much to my surprise my cervical length was only measuring 2.5 cm it should be 3-5 cm
I also have a subchronic hematoma which is measuring 8.5cm x 6 cm
Very worry Dr is hoping we can make it to 23 weeks.....
I have a massive hematoma or blood clot just above my cervix. He would place to cerclage, but he's afraid it'll do more harm than good. He thinks the pressure from the blood over my cervix is causing the shortening. We go back for a recheck May 1st
And my Dr is very worried. He's a afraid that ill pass the clot and when that happens it will tear the baby's sac causing my water to break. He has his fingers Crossed that it won't happen until 23 weeks. But I REALLY do not wanna deliver prior to 26 weeks do to develop of baby and he'll have a much better fighting chance. And this is all coming from my perinatologist
Any advice, positive outcomes would be MUCH APPRECIATED
Not sure I have much in the way of advice, but I'll be praying for you. I did have a shortening cervix (less than 1cm at 24 weeks) but it was not due to an SCH. I ended up carrying my twins to 33w1d, so your cervix can hold on for a long time, even when it is short.
Have they discussed the steroid shots with you to help develop the baby's lungs? If not I would definitely ask when you could get those.
