What Does This Mean? Enlarged Uterus
Ok, I just got back from my check up (just a tummy check). My OB stated I would need a sono due to enlarged uterus. I cant find anything out about this and now I am freaking. i was fine and didnt think much of it when I was in the office, but now I am wondering does is this a symptom of I/C? Please give any advice. Thanks!

I don't think an enlarged uterus would be a symptom of incompetent cervix. THe first thing that comes to mind is that some women measure larger in their uterus than expected but it doesn't always mean a problem. Keep us posted! (And hopefully someone here will know more.)

I think it just means you are measuring....
bigger than your dates. However I have to tell you that if you are fluffy it is harder to get accurate measurements. My doctor doesn't even measure. I measured big for Darby all along and she was only 7lbs 8oz at 5 days past due. An U/S just gives him a better idea of the size. I know it is hard not to fret over these things but it is most likely nothing. Belly rubs.

Why in the world would you think this was a symptom of IC? I know there are lots of things to worry about during pregnancy but really, it pays to at least be informed about what symptoms are, rather than worrying randomly.
An enlarged uterus means your uterus seems bigger than it should. There are lots of reasons why it might be, most of them are pretty harmless. Some of them are not. Try calling your doctor tomorrow and asking what it is that he is worried about, and I'm sure he can give you better information.
Meanwhile take a deep breath, worrying yourself silly isn't going to make it any better.
Aviva, you sound irritated with me - though i do not know know why. It actually is something for me to be concerned about. My uterus should measure roughly 18 cm and is measuring 22 cm. And because I cant find anything on the internet about this, I thought maybe people that know something about IC (since it is a valid fear) could tell me if this is something they experienced too. I am not a big worrier, but I did turn to my fellow cysters for any advise, not irritation or being criticized for supposed "worrying randomly". Am I not trying to inform myself by seeking advice? I am sorry to rant but your post really is harsh.
