I guess I'll be the first to post in the high-risk category. I've had 2 leep procedures done in the past for abnormal cells. It's been several years ago now, but at my first Dr visit at 10 weeks, the Dr wanted to do an ultrasound to measure the length of my cervix due to the leeps. It was 2.1 cm, (I've read that anywhere between 3-5 cm is considered normal during pregnacy). So, it's short. I will be getting u/s every 2 weeks until 24 weeks to monitor my cervix and be sure it isn't thinning or weakening. A short cervix puts me at a greater risk of late miscarriage, and pre-term birth.
I am extremely nervous about all of this. I have to see 3 drs in the practice, and the first Dr I saw (for the u/s), left me with the impression that 2.1 cm wasn't a huge deal, just something to monitor closely. I saw the 2nd Dr for a routine checkup (no u/s that visit), and he pretty much scared the living crap out of me and made me feel like I need to be really guarded about this pregnancy. He acted really rushed, and didn't give me time to really ask questions, so I left with my head spinning. I'm so scared. I'm terrified obviously # 1 of losing the baby. #2 of having to go on bedrest or something. I'm the primary income in our house, and theres just no way we could ever manage financially without me working. I'll do what I have to do for the baby of course, but I'm just really worried. Does anyone out there have any experience with this? I go in for my next u/s next week, so I'm really, REALLY hoping for some good results. Sorry so long...I needed to vent a little.
