Title: 1.13 cm at 20 weeks
Post by: Alolita on November 21, 2017 at 03:35 PM
Hi Everyone:

I'm new here. Joined the live chat today and it was great talking to other people walking the walk on bedrest.

My story. I had a normal uncomplicated pregnancy. 2nd preganancy ended at a loss at 19 weeks - painless cervical dilation. Cerclage attempted and failed.  My world has never been the same.

With this pregnancy. Preventative cerclage at 12 weeks. 2.5 cm at 16 weeks - light duty modified bed rest, 20 weeks 1.13 cm at bedrest for real.

Currently 24 weeks, reading all the stories on this forum give me so much hope. Praying to carry to term. Trying to keep occupied and not worry much. Taking it one day at a time.

Do share your stories. Will keep you ladies updated.

Have a happy  thanksgiving  :)

Happy Thanksgiving! Here is to hoping your cerclage will hold. My second cerclage was preventive, and my cervical length fluctuated, but I was able to make it term. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hi Everyone:

Just to update my story. I went into labor at 31 and 5 days and had my son at 31 and 6 days last year January. We stayed in the NICU for 30 days as a feeder and grower and he is doing amazing. To others on bed rest. Keep the faith and I pray you keep em cooking. Just wanted to encourage someone. I cried so hard when I went into labor. I was on bed rest, makena and yet still went into labor. Somethings cannot be explained and we just have to let go.

Want to thank Angela and the live chats. They keep me company  every week.

Hugs and much love,


Alolita

Hi, Alolita!

It is wonderful to hear from you! What excellent advice. Something I regret is not letting go of what was beyond my control. I couldn't accept what was happening. In any case, I'm so happy to hear where you and your little one are now!

Thank you for taking the time to share your story! Much love to all!

Thank you for the encouragement and there update.   The thought of being in the NICU is a scary one but it’s encouraging Hearing others who have been on that path and are now doing well with their sweet babies at home!
