    Well, the cervical stitch is now IN!!

    I had a very weird, long uncomfortable day yesterday, and experienced my first epidural. Kind of hated the whole experience, and had a whole room full of students watching my lady bits being stitched. All dignity was well out the window, with my bum tipped halfway towards the ceiling!

    The doc said he was glad he did do the stitch straight away, as although my cervix measured 2.5cm when he scanned, he actually only had 1cm to work with when placing the stitch (not sure how that works...). He said it went well, and was pretty positive that it should now help me. If all goes well it gets removed at week 34 (God i can only dream about being that far along right now!)

    So i'm home, in bed and in a bit of pain. But very relieved that hurdle is over. Now i have another scan next thur and just hope my cervix is behaving itself.

    Thanks for all your positive thoughts and messages. It means a lot when you're stuck in bed with nothing but the tv to make the days go by!

    Glad it went ok honey - I can sympathise with the whole room of people staring down your lady bits - I think all sense of dignity disappears completely when you go for the pregnancy checks :( Make sure you get plenty of rest xx

    Thats so awesome that it went well.
    A roomful of students, though? I mean someone has to let them see, but that would have sucked. I guess its good practice for labour...:hugs:
