No unfortunately - I was overseas with my ex husband in Turkey and the doc off base in Adana wouldn't do one because I was over 19 weeks.

Have you spoken to your doctor?, I know my consultant would say you don't have an incompetent cervix because you were over due with out a cerclage just a short one. Good luck hunny!

Ladies, I'm due to have my TAC placed on the 1st August but I'm now pregnant!

We are considering trying a TVCIC but so unsure!. I don't really know 100% which way to go. I gave birth to my twins through my shirodkar stitch due to placental abruption, I've been worried about possible damage higher up on my cervix. Urgh such a hard decision!!

dsemcho I had ic with my 4th pg and she was born at 35 weeks despite a cerclage. my 6th pregnancy went all the way to 39+3 with a cerclage but my cervix was nice long and closed throughout. so I guess it can happen

misszoe why on earth donline i think I knew this? congratulations hun, I m not sure of the procedure you wrote but given your history they really need to be proactive I guess??? a very happy and healthy 9 months

TVCIC is just slightly higher than Shirodkar if they can get it in, I think some doctors would just call it a high shirodkar. My doctor has offered to see how the top of my cervix looks and if he thinks its too damaged to carry to term with the TVCIC he will do a TAC there and then.

I'm going to see my consultant on Wednesday and I think we will discuss it further then. I'm not quite as far along as I originally thought so I've had to wait another week for scan. x

Help and advice needed


Hi all

I have been researching around the issue of incompetent cervix for the past couple of weeks and only just found this forum which is amazing

I guess I am trying self diagnose what went wrong several months ago with my first proper pregnancy. My story is this - after an early miscarriage and subsequent MRI scan I was diagnosed with a didelphic (double) uterus, 2 cervices etc. So I have two separate uterusís each connected to one ovary. When I was told these results the consultant said I am at slightly higher risk of second trimester loss but didnít really elaborate much past that.

When I got pregnant again I was just excited to make it past the 12 week mark and although I was under the high risk consultant (I also have crohns disease which isnít active) I didnít see them till 19 weeks which I realise now is really late

Anyway she then says I need to have a cervix scan to measure the length of my cervix as this can be an indicator for preterm birth. After various phone calls back and forth I finally have a scan booked for just shy of 21 weeks. I dread it as I just have a bad feeling about the internal ultrasound, especially as the last time I had one done I miscarried the next day, but I tell myself iím just being silly.

The cervix scan takes ages. The sonography struggles to see my cervix so goes to get the consultant who then takes another 2 attempts and also puts his fingers in to check where my cervix is because they just arenít sure. So after having the ultrasound probe repeatedly stuck up inside me he finally comes up with a measurement of 19mm.

He says itís short and that thereís a real risk of preterm labour and I have to take these progesterone suppositories but that a stitch isnít useful in ďwomen like meĒ. Then he dashes back to clinic and I numbly plod along to the pharmacy wondering what the hell just happened and feeling like utter crap.

I feel crap for the rest of the day and night with loads of pressure and just canít get comfy in bed. I start to bleed a bit and make the decision to wake up hubby and go to the hospital. Well 20 minutes after arriving at the hospital whilst we are waiting to see the doctor, my waters just burst and gush out. It was such a shock and I half expected to look down and be covered in blood until it slowly dawned on me what had happened. Hubby ran off to get someone and then helped me undress. Still no sign of the doctor and by now I feel like I need to get to the toilet to do a poo (sorry tmi) and then after a big pain inside my son just seems to fall out of me. I didnít push once and I didnít even have what I would consider contractions.

The doctor rushes in shortly after and then big flurry of motion as people dashing in and out. Iím not even in L&D area so they have to run round the corner to get all the stuff and bring it back. They eventually pass me my son and he looks perfect and I a mother just in complete shock and shaking uncontrollably. My son Mason lives for 2 hours but because he is only 21 weeks they will not do anything for him. This is still hard as he was so strong and it feels like the only reason he died was because my body pushed him out. I didnít. I wanted him to stay in to term but sadly my stupid body had other ideas.

Now I a more s
