Had my U/s today..

They couldn't tell the gender. The baby kept it's legs closed the WHOLE time. They really tried too, for quite a while.
Anyway ,they saw from the u/s my cervix was too short (?) I hadn't heard of this problem before, and so the u/s tech had me see the dr before I left, as I'm moving in two weeks and it would be my last chance to see them.
I saw the dr and he told me this makes me a higher risk pregnancy, and I need to stay off my feet as much as possible, no lifting anything, and no strenuous excercise. I guess this makes me more at risk for prematue birth, or miscarriage they said. They want another u/s done in 3-4 wks, so they'll just continue monitoring me, and that's that, I guess. Just wanted to update.

Thanks for the update. I wish I had more info, but I haven't experienced this or know of anyone who has. Hopefully, someone else on the board will be able to provide more info. I just wanted to wish you the best this pregnancy!

Re: Had my U/s today..

Do a search for " cervix too short" and you will get a wealth of material on this topic. All which will make you Panic. don't ! There can be a increased risk of delivering early with this issue. But there are things you and your Dr. can do to reduce the risk. My prayers are with you

Hi, my mom's friend is a ob/gyn nurse, and sent us a ton of info on it, we found a ton ourselves. I'm not super worried at this point. I am just going to do what the dr's say to do. I have another u/s scheduled for March 28th. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
