surgery yesterday for cerclage


hello Ladies

Just passsed my 14 week mark and decided to head on over here with you ladies!! I had a cerclage put in yesterday and I'm in a great deal of pain when walking and laying down (as long as I'm sitting upright, I'm ok lol). I had lots of scar tissue and my cervix wasn't healed from the last surgery.
A lil History:

I had most of my cervix removed when I was 5 weeks pregnant because I had cervical cancer. (my doc didn't know I was pregnant ) They removed all my cancer, but I'm in deep shit now because baby could fall out. I also have Protein S defiency and get blood clots often, and hypothyroidism because I had my thyroid removed 3 years ago.

damn, when I write it all down I look like a sicko . . .lol
Anyways if anyone has questions or advice I would be glad to take them!!!!

Praying baby stays put! Take it REALLY easy and hopefully the pain will go away soon and you can lay down more so your cerclage can hold

on a positive note, 14 weeks is a great time to have a cerclage! The less pregnant you are when getting a cerclage, the closer you are to getting to full term. I was 20 weeks when I got my rescue cerclage, my dr. didnt think I would make it to 24 weeks now that im 25 + 2 he just wants me to get to 28 weeks. I wouldnt imagine you having to do bedrest since youre only 14 weeks? What was your cervix like when you got your cerclage? You sound like you have just a few complications blood clots etc but im sure your doctor is aware and will take care of you! When I got my cerclage placed, I had zero cervix left I was completely effaced, now I have about .5 cm of cervix so with bedrest and shots I should be ok until 28 weeks!

I too had an elective stitch at 14 weeks and am hoping it will take me through to at least 28 weeks. I am going on modified bedrest as I would rather not put any extra pressure on. Good luck with your pregnancies. X

Thank you, my cervix was 2.5 cm so I was short for being only 14 weeks. I am not in danger just yet, but because I had a surgery on my cervix the month prior to getting pregnant and another surgery when I was 5 weeks, we didn't want to take a chance. . .
