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!!!!
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. . .
