Stilll stressing myself into oblivion with my first pregnancy!
I’m nearly 21 weeks now and had my scan done about a week ago to which all came back fine and normal. I have a Doppler at home and can regularly hear bubs hb nice and strong on that.
My question is, I’m worried about the possibility of Cervical Incompetence…
For some daft reason I googled ‘Miscarriage chances after 20 weeks’ to which a few articles came up about people losing their little bundles at around this mark due to incompetent cervix. Now of course this has given me yet another thing to stress about.
One of the ‘articles’ I read said that a couple of the symptoms of CI are: Increased Vaginal Discharge and also a Heavy feeling in lower abdomen. Both of these I’ve experienced (althought never any spotting or bleeding or pain – of course I get the odd stitch/cramp due to stretching but never anything more serious!)
I was wondering, are these also common pregnancy syptoms for most people? Also, if I had a weird cervix would they have picked it up at my 20 week scan?
