Is a Cervical Length of 3.6 at 17 Weeks in Twin Pregnancy Something to Be Alarmed About?
16 weeks with boy/girl twins.
I found out at 7 weeks I was pregnant with fraternal twins. My cervix at 10 weeks was 5.1 cm. One month later my cervix measured 4.3cm my Dr. said no more sex and he was going to check it again in 2 weeks. At the next ultrasound my cervix measured 3.6cm. I had not been having sex but had been shopping and on my feet alot as I have a one year old son and it was Easter. We also found out that we are having a boy and a girl so we shopped quite a bit for 2 or 3 days in a row out of excitement. The Dr has now put me on restricted activity, no sex, no shopping!!! I have been doing pretty well with this but I don't have my cervix remeasured again for another week. I am sitting around constantly thinking about it.
The Dr has told me that 3.6 cm is still a normal measurement and nothing to be worried about. He says that we just have to keep a watch on it. He also says if it drops below 3cm he wants to do a cerclage.
has anyone on here had a cerclage placed? Do you know if 3.6cm is a good measurement at 17 weeks with twins? Should I request the placement of a cerclage? Thank you so much. Any advice or anything will be appreciated! Should I maybe call and request they check the cervical length earlier?
