Well I went to the OB today to have cervix checked. As you may remember, w/ twins, my doc checks every 2 weeks. Well the last measurement my cervix was 3.2, which was great, however, today it was 1.8. Not so good. The doc still wasn't real concerned. I'm still not on bedrest. He said to take it easy and my only restrictions is no prolonged standing and no lifting heavy objects and sit rather than stand and lay rather than sit. Plus now I have to go in next week. I'm assuming if it doesn't get any longer than I'll be going in every week.
So has anyone else had this type of thing happen? Doc said there's a 20% chance I'll go into labor before 35 weeks and 80% chance that i won't. I just really want to carry full term and obviously the longer the better. I'm 28 weeks tomorrow, so it's way too early. Any help, advice, or feel good stories would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!!
We have had a lot of girls in my ddc with a shortened cervix like that, two of them delivered early. Babies are doing great though. All of our other mommies are still hanging in there and we are in the 34-38 week range. We have had 3 of our 5 twin mommies deliver already...one of them having the shortened cervix (born at 32 weeks). But, all of those babies are doing fantastic. Hang in there mommy!
