- 0Sep 30, '03 by TexagainI'm in antepartum and see lots of funneling cervix cases, sometimes as early as 18 weeks (yes we do get 18 week admits). We generally consider a funneled cervix to be an indicator of an incompetant cervix, and frequently the woman will get a cerclage and bedrest.
Have you been diagnosed with a funneled cervix, and if so, how
many weeks are you?
On a personal note, I had a funneled cervix at 18 weeks that very quickly allowed my membranes to hourglass, and so was unable to get a cerclage. I was hospitalized for many weeks and had a premature delivery.
- 0Sep 30, '03 by LisaMoI just saw your post & it sure caught my attention.
I had my funneled cervix discovered at my 16 wk u/s.
I was immediately put on strict bedrest w/ every other day u/s checks. My mucus plug came out soon after that, a few weeks later in fact & our baby boy did not make it.
Please stay on bedrest. Not everyone can get a cerclage if the funneling is severe & the leftover length is too short, like in my case. My length was only 1cm at the end.
