Jessabella...my doc told me that after taking progesterone suppositories many women all of the sudden have a gross gooey large discharge and come in freaked out...it collects in a vaginal cavity and then eventually falls out. So maybe that is what it all was. She warned me ahead so in case it happens to me I dont get upset.
Have they been doing cervical measures and are you the same at 1.5 as originally. I was wondering because that is comforting to know that at that measure it can still hold strong.
MM.....please let us know about the scan. good news is that even if you are close, your baby will be ok at this point!

As for me, having the same experience as MM. No cerclage, only bedrest and progesterone suppositories. After 2 weeks, now I am 2.2cm, up from 1.4.
I was sensitive and bleeding during exams and now I am not at all and clot went away. Im so tired of the bed after 20 days here almost, but guess I could be here until Xmas if all is going well with our little guy. Seems impossible! The 1st two weeks were fun...to relax, catch up on stuff, and have a break from my two year old for the 1st time in 2 years. Now Im over it but oh well. Too afraid to move much!

Welcome Mummy7! I too had a stitch placed with my twins and made it to 38wks and scheduled section. You need any advice, I'm always here

Jessabella - I know I'm sounding bossy hun, and I apologise, but IC is an issue I feel so strongly about, and I just want you to avoid my preemie horror On that note - drinking water is sooooo important. With twins I was on 2/3 glasses per hour, and that was the only way to keep my "pee" clear - otherwise it was like treacle TMI

With a singleton you probably don't need as much, but atleast a glass per hour should suffice. It does help prevent PTL too. xxx

Mummyof7 - steroids not necessary once a baby reaches 34wks gestation. Weights sound perfect for 20wks xxx

PS - Anyone know if MPG1502 is ok? She hasn't been on the board since the 20th, so getting a bit concerned. She is at 30wks now so things are not quite so worrisome as they were 8wks ago x

hey ladies..scan thismorning in 2 hours!a little excited a little nervous.i have been in sooooo much pain and every time i do a wee it feels like baby is trying to drop out (i think its the position of sitting on the toilet?) so am a little worried things have been progressing but im 30+5 now and im sure they can hopefully hold it off another two weeks (hopefully) and then i will quit being worried cos although he'l be premmie im sure hel be fine cos of his big size..i am just hoping he is still 2 weeks ahead in growth as he was at every scan between 20-30 weeks!cos that would make him the size of a 33 weeker right now!wish me luck.x

well i had my scan and everything seems to be going quite well
my cervix is down to 28mm (it was 29mm last time it was checked) but to me that seems quite good for nearly 31 weeks?she said there was no membranes around and the cervix was all closed. so i am thinking its quite possible after all this hassle i will carry to term!i am going to ask my doc in 2 weeks if we can move the ceaser forward to 38 weeks instead of 39 as i have been so prepared for this baby to come really early and i am MASSIVE already no one can beleive i have 9 weeks left!

i am 30+5 today and baby is measuring 32+2..so still quite a big boy so i know he'l be fine to go that extra week early.his bladder was full from drinking the fluid and we saw him drinking it on the 4D which was adorable!she also said she could see him practising his breathing so he's doing everything right.

my placenta has moved 3cms away from my cervix which didnt matter much cos i require a csection regardless but still good news. i honestly think now i will be right to carry on life a bit more normal than i have been and start preparing the house for bubs since its a pigsty cos iv not been able to vacum ect!

Hi there, I was wondering if I could join you ladies on here? A little bit about myself, currently 19 weeks pregnant with twins. I had a shirodkar stitch placed at 12 weeks, this was due to a previous loss of twins at 22weeks 5days in my previous pregnancy. My cervix was fine at 20 week scan but at 21 weeks I had another scAn and it was seen that cervix had opened. An emergent cerclage was attempted to be placed and the amniotic sac of baby was ruptured during procedure. I went 10 days before the contractions started and unfortunately I lost both babies, was an extremely sad time for us. However we continued with the ivf treatment and I have been blessed with twins again although it's so scary.

I had my last scan on Wednesday and cervix is holding well with stitch, length was around 4.9cm. I have placed myself on bed rest since 12 weeks and although I have been told that it won't make any difference i really don't want to take any risks. I lay on the couch in the day and have recently just been leaving the house to go to appts or other necessary trips. I'm really not sure on how struct the bed rest should be as every time I do walk now I'm out of breath and feel very unfit.

I really hope I can join you ladies and provide support for one another to get through these tough days. My first milestone being 21 weeks when it went wrong last time.

Looking forward to getting to know you all and any advice would be appreciated.

X
