Incompitent Cervix, How do you know You are at Risk?
 
So I have been worrying myself to death with the thought I may have an incompetent cervix. (That's what I get for googling things)

Anyways, I read often there is no signs until it is too late, I have had pressure on my pelvis and some cervical pains, I did bring this up to my doctor around 12 weeks but he assured me it was just probably the pressure of the uterus growing.

Well I still have that pressure sometimes and I worry about something bad happening, I know it probably is unlikely such a thing will happen. I never had any prior trauma to my cervix and my PAP came back normal.

So should I be worried? I know they don't test for it unless you have had a problem before.

They do check your cervix during u/s... It is usually caused by having many pregnancies or a short cervix... I lost my son due to IC, but I had 12 pregnancies prior to getting pregnant with him... They did monitor for changes, but not as vigilantly as they do when there is a confirmed case. If it is really worrying you, you should call so they can at least set your mind at ease...

I'm so sorry to hear that.
As for me, I have had two prior pregnancies but I lost them at 4 weeks, so this is really the farthest I have ever been. I don't have any living children as of yet. I go in for a u/s on the 16th of April and I will ask them if everything is looking normal.

If you are really worried about it then I suggest calling. It never hurts to have it checked and just give you some piece of mind. :hug:

I agree with the others, if your worried then call. It can't hurt! I will say though, with 10 pregnancies that went full term I had all kinds of cervical/pelvic/vaginal pain throughout each and every one of them. Everything is streching and growing down there to accomadate baby, even your pelvic bones. Before I had my first baby I had a bunch of jeans that fit, and then after she was born I lost every pound of my weight, but my jeans never did fit again...my bones were too big! Streching and growing I say! However, better safe than sorry...mention it to the doc and make sure everything is ok!

I'm sorry you are so worried. My friend had this with her first pregnancy no pains or warning signs.

I was terrified of this as well with my son. I even had a slightly open cervix for my whole pregnancy, but they never were worried. My son was born at 36 weeks, an no cerlage was needed.
