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.

Keep taking it easy, really easy. I lived through 2 cerclages, the first one similar to yours. Thinking of you...

Sorry for the late reply. My second pregnancy when I had a preventive cerclage placed I was only placed on modified activities rather than bed rest. It actually surprised and scared me after being on bed rest for months during my previous pregnancy. My cervical length held fairly steady throughout, only a little fluctuation. I had a 2-year-old at the time and though I had some help, there were times when I was afraid I was pushing it. I didn't lift anything heavy, I walked when I had to, I cooked dinner sitting down. Definitely not bed rest, but I wasn't taking any chances. My second little girl was born at 39 weeks. So, it is possible.

With that said, I was placed on strict bed rest after my first emergent cerclage after some severe cervix funneling. Same doctor for both. Not sure if that is helpful...

Yes, I had a similar uncomfortable feeling from time to time with both of my cerclages. It was worse right after the cerclage and later in the pregnancy.

You can do it! I had a cerclage twice and was on bedrest from 15 weeks the first time. It was scary, it was boring, but I made it!  I know how hard it is with a little one too. You can do this! Call in favors and let things go when you can.
