2nd Trimester

20 week ultrasound now hospital...

So I went in for my 20 week ultrasound the baby is fine 12 ounces, 152 bom, healthy and good. But when they did an internal exam they found that my cervix is short, and opened quite a bit and that there was also this "sludge" like substance. Now I am having to stay the night in the hospital and they are going to start me on progesterone which is inserted through the vagina, and they are waiting for a specialist to come and see if they need to take an amniotic sample, stictch my cervix, or whatever the case may be... But they said I would more then likely be on bed rest for the rest of my pregnancy. But what concerns me the most is that this "sludge" like substance could be an infection which could cause serious harm to the baby, and to myself as well... So it has been a very scary day, and I still have very few answers. Just wondering if anyone has gone through this, or knows of someone who has?...

  • I had a similar experience a couple of weeks ago. They ended up doing an amnio (to reduce the size) and stitching me up. It was a not very great couple of days, but they cleared me to go back to work after about a week and a half, and I was only on bedrest for a day or so right after the procedure.

    That said, I have no idea if your experience will be similar. But an incompetent cervix doesn't necessarily mean you're stuck on bed rest forever!
