Hi ladies. I just decided to drop in and check out any threads pertaining to IC and cerclage. I am not pregnant, yet that I know of, currently in my tww. I have had too premature births and third short cervix was confirmed at 15 wks. I had a very succesful pregnancy once IC was diagnosed. My fear now is that since it seems to be happening earlier and earlier( # born at 29 wks, #2 25 wks, #3 effacing noticed at 15wks) when does it become a concern? At what week, and how early should I expect to have cerclage put in?

To answer your question Mum2rugrats, I had it put in under spinal and it was taken out right in Dr office. Don't rmbr if I had to be numbed or anything for that. It's like having reg. stitches removed, just down there.

HI Katerdid - your baby will be just fine if born now hun, so try not to worry (easier said than done I know ). As an aside for future pregnancies, yours does not sound like a case of incompetent cervix. IC shows itself much earlier in pregnancy, and because you were already 33wks before your cervix had dilated, it had held up just fine before then. Also, you had contractions so for you this was preterm labour probably caused by other factors. good luck with your pregnancy and delivery hun x

Mum2, I had a shirodkar removed under a spinal and it was fine. I felt nothing and was more traumatised by the severe blood loss I had suffered in delivering the babies. I was relieved to have the stitch out because my bladder had been so uncomfortable with it in x

MA - you lo has time to turn yet hun, tho there is every possibility she won't. Its such an unknown that I would definitely wait and see but keep an open mind for a planned section if need be. When they do turn you definitely feel it, it's a bizarre breath-taking feeling which is unmistakable x

Susannah hun, you ok? WOrried that you haven't been on here for a while x

Hi there hun and welcome

In your case the stitch should be placed as early as possible, at 12wks. Theoretically it can be placed before conception, and you could well ask about the possibility of doing so since you effaced at 15wks last time. However, they tend to opt for 12wks and won't consider any sooner in pregnancy until after the baby had been screened for genetic problems around 10/12wks. x

Hi there ladies! Thanks Lizzie. Yes, I have a heart shaped uterus and they are concerned she won't turn in time. I'm going to the acupuncturist tomorrow for moxybustion technique. Hopefully it will work.

Can you tell me..is it normal to feel REAL tightening in the upper abdomen. We're talking above the belly button. I'm not sure if this tightening is a sign she'll be here soon or if it's just her transverse positioning where she's shoving her back upwards and I'm feeling painful tightening. The hospital staff didn't think it was much of anything...I have the pressure in the bum which we all talk about....but I'm also feeling sick to my stomach the past couple of days and now the severe tightening in the belly. Last night was excruciating and I got no sleep because either side hurt. I'm assuming it's just that there's not much room there and she's transverse but thought I'd check in here to see if this could be a sign she's coming soon. Duh....I'm 35wks this week so of course she's coming. I think you all know what I mean though.

Hey everyone, how's everyone doing? (Sorry not had much time to keep up with posts!)

MA - how did your shower go?

Lizzie - it's been a while, how you doing?

For me I'm OK, still very tired with major pressure and lower back pain. Now bought all we need and stitch is out in 2 weeks (scary and exciting)!

Hi ladies,

Just wanted you all to pray for me. I am 22 weeks now. I went in to have my cervix measured today and it has shortened significantly, the Dr did not give me the exact measurement. I am going back into the hospital this evening, they want to put another stitch in, as they explained that the one I have is just about holding on. The funneling is also quite wide now. Will be on strict bedrest at the hospital. Absolutely terrified now.

Sham1 congratulations on getting so far, hope I can get as far as you, you have done so well. Best wishes

Hey Tbutterfly, I was wondering what happen to you. Havent seen you around in a while. First congrats on the new pregnancy. Second I have heard of people having a second cerclage and good outcomes. I hope everything works out for you.

Butterfly, your in my thoughts and prayers as you have the second stitch. Praying for a sense of calmness and peace, wisdom and guidance for the medical staff and victory over your thoughts and over the mountain your about to climb in Jesus Mighty name...AMEN

Sham, the shower went better than expected and we were blessed with a whole lot of things. I'll share pics and the experience in a couple of days. We really did get a whole lot of things for Amelia. I'm humbled.

Hey Butterfly, sorry to hear about your cervix length but try not to worry too much. Like truth said, the second stitch should yield good results. Hospital bedrest is the best thing. You will be in good hands. Remember, we're all here if you need us.

Thanks hun, trust me as far along as I am, I still don't feel 100% safe home and dry and prob won't until he's here!

MA, glad your shower went well! We don't have them so much in the UK but a few of my friends did last year. I was hoping to do one but I think we've left it too late so may it after he's born now! Have you got your hospital bag ready now?
