Two Cervixes?

My 20 year old daughter found out she was pregnant in Janauary. She had an ultrasound that revealed she has two cervixes. I am surprised that no obgyn has never seen this since she gets her regular exams.
Her primary care doctor has warned her of the symtoms of her water breaking and says it could happen at any time.
My wife passed away in 2006 so I am just a dad here trying to figure out what kind of risk she is facing. She and her fiancee are living together and they have already stocked the baby room with everything the baby will need. My fear is that she is at such high risk, this is not going to end very well.
Does anyone out there have any experience with this condition or know of anyone who has?

Re: Two Cervixes?

Hi D&N

Congratulations on the soon to be new arrival. How far along is your daughter in her pregnancy? Is she seeing a high risk ob/gyn?

Maybe you need to sit down and have a talk with her. She most likely has already discussed the pros and cons of her situation with her doctor and can hopefully alleviate your fears.

I have heard of instances were a mother has two cervixes and I thought I had read that the baby's birth is achieved via a scheduled c-section.

Write back with any other questions.

Re: Two Cervixes?

She is due in October and has regular visits with specialists. She has 1 detailed ultrasound every few weeks. The doctor tells her to expect an early birth and to be very aware of signs of her water breaking.
Obviously they want the baby to stay put until the lungs are developed but, of course, they cant make any promises.
The specialist did say he was very surprised she was able to conceive given the two cervixes and their position...but admitted they "pulled it off" somehow.
He also said that should she become pregant again, the second pregnancy would have a much higher chance of going full term since this one is stretching out the limited space she has on each side of the cervix. That made me wonder if she has two uteruses as well, but she tells me they said no. So I am still a little confused but my fingers are crossed she will be ok.
Thanks for the reply.
