After a week, I went back to my MFM to have my cervix measured again. It's still long at 5.86cm, and she wouldn't even consider doing a cerclage at this point. She said that particularly because it is very curved, any additional pressure that might cause shortening on a straight cervix would have no effect on mine. I feel lost. On one hand, I'm thrilled that it is long. On the other, I'm terrified it won't stay that way and will shorten just as significantly and put me back in high-risk territory. I have to wait 4 more weeks to go back and have them measure it again, and I know I'm going to be a nervous wreck in the meantime. If it's back to being short then, I'll have completely missed the window of opportunity to have a cerclage done at all. Part of what frustrates me is that I live in a very small town and this is the only MFM in the region. There isn't anyone I can go to for a second opinion. I know the cervix can be "dynamic", but a change from 2.06 to 5.86 is practically unheard of. I can find nothing in all my research to explain such a change or give an indication of what might happen from here on out.
I hate this. I hate this so much.
