My cervix was remaining stable with progesterone and modified bedrest from weeks 12 through 19.  At my 20 week check it had gone down to 9mm but closed.  Devastation and sheer panic was my mood all throughout the visit.  I was admitted and received a rescue cerclage the next day they said my cervix was still closed and they were able to gain a little bit of length during the procedure.  I have just come home today and am so scared and very frustrated/upset they didnt do this sooner.  I dont know how to forgive myself if the worst happens and we lose this baby!

Thanks for your response.  It does help knowing some others out there dont have a cerclage and have made it to a point where their babies at least have a fighting chance.  I just cant imagine losing baby at this stage and ever come back from that.  I dont want to switch doctors as I do trust mine and hes a respected and "well seasoned" practitioner but I cant handle the thought of having a miscarriage.  Hopefully ill get some reassuring news next week.  Hoping things are well with you!

Hi im hoping to get some advice or reassurance.  Im currently 16 weeks pregnant with my second child.  I developed a severe case of ashermans syndrome after my first child and went through 2.5 years of procedures and surgeries to finally get to a point where we were allowed to try for another.  We finally conceived in December but shortly afterwards I was diagnosed with a short cervix measuring 27mm.  I was put on progesterone suppositories twice a day and taken off of work Ive been going for measurements every two weeks and my cervix has since gone down to 21mm.  My doctor wont do a cerclage at this point- he says my uterus is really irritable and hes worried it would cause too much inflammation im really struggling mentally with all this.  Everything I read makes me feel like a cerclage would be my "only shot"  at saving this pregnancy and I feel like this is our one and only chance for a second child.  Im going for another measurement next week with a different gyne (suggested by my doc) but im terrified things will end badly in the meantime.  I guess im just looking for any advice or success stories with people on progesterone only in this situation.  Sorry for the long post!
