Customer Question
I am currently 24...

I am currently 24 weeks and 1 day pregnant. at 16 weeks a SCH was observed and I was given progesterone suppositories and bed rest. At 20 weeks appointment SCH was resolved but funneling was observed. I was directed to go directly to hospital. I spent 1 week there on bedrest and on 21 week TVUS funneling had resolved. At 23 weeks ultrasound my cervics measured 3.2 cm. my EDD is 2nd January 2018. I am currently on bed rest and progesterone suppositories until baby comes. what are my odds of carrying to full term taking all of this into consideration?

very unlikely that you will carry to full term

The good news is that you are already very close to a viable gestational age

If you can make it to 33 weeks, the baby will be totally fine and unlikely have any health issues

let me know if you have other questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
