Hi ladies, I usually post in the January 2016 board. I hope it's ok I post here, I searched for my answers, but the most recent similar topic was from 2014.
Yesterday I had my 20 week scan and baby looked great. Then the tech checked my cervix and I could tell right away, it didn't look "right". When my doctor came in he said my cervix was short, 1.9 cm and he was sending me to the high risk doctor. He said usually they would put a cerclage in and go from there. I, however, have "sludge" or "debris" at the top of my cervix.
A little background, I've been pregnant twice. My first (daughter) I lost at 16 weeks. No one could ever give me any answers as to why. 5 years later and a new OB, I had my son at 34 weeks when my water suddenly broke. 2 weeks in the NICU, but otherwise a healthy baby.
Well I made the mistake of googling this "sludge." Not very much information out there and its all pretty frightening. Apparently it's associated with preterm labor. I'm already on progesterone shots (Makena), which I started at 16 weeks.
I guess I'm just hoping someone out there has some experience with "sludge"...? I'm waiting to hear from the high risk doctor and trying to remain positive in the mean time.
