Cerclage cross posted

I am 17.5 weeks and my cervix has been shortening a lot each week. I'm down to 2.5. (History: @ 28 weeks with my last pregnancy I was put on bed rest bc of pre term labor, shortened cervix and low fluid).

Anyone have the cerclage and everything was ok?
I'm so scared I don't get it soon enough and go into labor. I know this pregnancy isn't viable yet so it's all freaking me out. On top of this I was supposed to start a new job and the dr suggested not to. Right now I'm a sahm and my husband doesn't have a job. He was going to stay with our lo and me work.

My head is spinning. I'm so scared. Any words of encouragement or wisdom!?

I had one when I was 13 weeks pregnant with triplets. My doc had performed hundreds of them and said he never saw a complication. It was NBD and the piece of mind was priceless. Good luck!

I had one placed at 14 weeks and was on modified bed rest (ie limited walking, no heavy lifting) and progesterone but carried to 39 weeks. No issues from the cerclage and I managed to work(desk job) until 36 weeks.

I would do it for the peace of mind.

I would bring it up to your doctor. Don't wait for them to offer it. Sometimes you have to be your own advocate when it comes to doctors and medical procedures.

I go twice a week to a high risk dr to check my cervix. We talk about it every time. It's not to the point from medical standards to put one in yet based on my last pregnancy and history. I will know more at my appt. tomorrow. Thx

I have an transabdominal cerclage due to my incompetent cervix. I lost my daughter to IC at almost 24w. If you can I highly recommend a TAC because it will get you to term.

Most dr's will not recommend it because they think its "drastic" but to me losing a baby is drastic. They wont tell you that they deem success with a vaginal cerclage is getting you to viability and anything beyond that is a bonus. I dont think thats success in my book.

You can check out this fb page for more info:

Also my blog on the different types of cerclages:

https://mylovelosslife.wordpress.com/incompetent-cervix/treatment/

With a TAC you need to deliver via a c-section but for me it was worth it so that I could carry a baby to full term and still be able to lead a normal pregnancy.

Just advocate for yourself and know that there are options out there for IC.

Also, Dr. Haney in Chicago is a leading expert in the treatment of IC and he does free phone consults.
