An incompetent cervix is something that can be difficult to diagnose. Unfortunately, it is something that is usually not detected in the first pregnancy. In these instances, an incompetent cervix is found only after the mother has recurrent late term miscarriages. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Women who have an incompetent cervix are typically placed on bed rest early on in the pregnancy. The condition is a result of the cervix dilating and thinning before the pregnancy has reached full term. This process could begin as early as the first trimester, making it very difficult for a woman to carry her baby to term.

Gestational diabetes is also a condition that can be dangerous for a pregnant woman. This is the result in the body’s inability to produce enough insulin to keep up with the body’s added amount of sugar. Both sugar and insulin should increase when a woman is pregnant in order to care for the baby.

The danger in gestational diabetes is that is can make it more likely for the mother or the baby to develop type 2 diabetes in life. It is also can cause issues with the size of the baby. Because of these problems, a woman with both gestational diabetes and an incompetent cervix may find it even more difficult to carry their baby to term.
