I went to a sono yesterday after noon for the major measurements when the sono lady said she needed to speak to my dr. I went from a 4 in cervix to a short cervix with the top "funneling" and diated about 3 cm.I'm only 25.5 weeks..the babies are healthy but they just found out that I have a mucus something between the bulging sac and my cervix showing the sac has been exposed. Dr. says now that chances of me getting to 28 weeks now are less than 50% :( we don't know what to think.. we are at a hospital with a level 3 nicu? We picked it for this exact reason .we are worried. They are giving me steriod shots andmagnesium....anyone been through this or have any advice? I'm so scared. I wanted to see our babies but not like this...not this soon
Oh none!! It sounds like they are on top of things though. I am going to go back and check my cervical length now. I know I had funneling from week 17 until I delivered at 34 weeks, so hang in there!!!
The exact same thing happened to me at 30 weeks with my twins. I had the magnesium and steroid shots as well, and ended up being released from the hospital, but got put on bed rest at home until I had to deliver at 32 weeks, due to severe preeclampsia.
Well the meds are in my system...they will check my cervix again Friday. They are gonna be moving me to a different floor since I'm going to be staying for the remander. Babies are still doing good....still chugging along
