    Been in hospital past week and had to get my cervix stitched at 19 weeks emergency cause bag was bulging out...it was a MIRACLE! By the time I got into surgery I was fully dialated and barely any cervix to stitch..for 30 minutes the ob surgeon said he just said "Lord it's in your hands now" and suddenly the membrane went back in enough for him to put in 2 stitches...i'm on strict bedrest..only bed, peeing/pooping (lots of laxatives so i don't strain/push) and a shower sometimes. I'm only 20 weeks tomorrow...just would love everyone to please pray for me and my baby girl..I lost one baby girl because of this last year same time and didn't know what caused it and I don't wanna lose another. Thanks!

    i have read up on this procedure when i first found out i was pregnant and i wanted to know everything i could about pregnancy and i remember coming across some info, it usually has a good sucess rate so i hope u can take some positive from that. Make sure u rest hun, and get every1 else around u to fuss and do everything for u - ok !!!! keep your chin up and stay positive, take each day at a time and look after your emotions as well as your body because its stressful enough being pregnant without any complications adding to that stress so try and take your mind of it and be peacful so u dont get to emotional and over whelmed

    I remember you worrying about this a while back, and that your Dr wouldnt do a stitch until this happened twice! I couldnt believe it,and for this reason, that it could happen again, and its better that he take the precautions anyway! I will pray this baby girl can hang in there for several weeks!

    I would suggest that you talk to them about anti-biotics to prevent the risk of infection after the operation. When I had my stitch put in at 21 weeks and so many days with my lil boy Corey after losing a lil boy at 18 weeks gestation previously they put me on 4 weeks of anti-biotics. They may 'cause thrush but it's worth it just to keep infection out. Also I had and I am having progesterone pessaries to prevent cervix from shortening. Maybe suggest these to your consultant. They're messy but they worked for me last time. I had the after I had stitch put in up until 32 weeks and I'll have them up until 32 weeks again this pregnancy. I carried until 39 weeks last time. My cervix was checked this pregnancy at 24 weeks and it was shortening again that's why I'm back on progesterone. I'm now 29 weeks. Hope I've helped and hope your lil one stays put!
