Hi, This is my second bed rest due to incompetant cervix. First one was in late 2009 for 4 months. I was admitted to hospital for an emergency stitch with a 9mm cervix and stayed there for 2 months. Got sent home at 28 weeks and gave birth at 34+5 waters broke with the stitch in BUT I was only on modifies bed rest at home, not strict). This one my cervix was 16mm at 25 weeks. It was 37mm at 18 weeks, but has gone on a rapid down hill slide wince then! Even with a stitch put in at 15 weeks. I have been on bed rest since 21 weeks, strict bed rest since 22 weeks, currenlty 27 weeks (woohoo!). So, my question is, Has anyone else been on bed rest? How far did you get?? This is kinda my own survey so I can sort of gauge what the success rate is (at to keep me in bed, I just want to play with my 1 year old, she's so cute!). Might be easier to write it like this: Time: 4 months (2 months strict, 2 months modified) Length of cervix: 9mm at 20 weeks Type: Strict/modified Stitch: YES, emergency at 20 weeks Gestation at birth: 34+5 Time: 5 weeks so far Length of cervix: 16mm at 25 Type: Strict Stitch: YES preventative at 15 weeks Gestation at birth: 40 weeks??!!
