Hi all,

Thank you for sharing your stories, especially your success stories- they are giving me some hope during this time.

I am 37 years old and in my second pregnancy. I lost a baby last year at just 8 weeks, so when I got to 12 weeks this time around, I naively thought we were in the clear. Last week, at 13w3d, I started bleeding and went to the ER. They saw funneling and within two hours, I was in the OR. Emergency cerclage and strict bed rest until at least week 20. I had my check-up this week and they saw no sign of funneling, but my cervical length was still only 3.5cm.

I am just in a constant state of sadness and worry. I am weeks away from any kind of reassuring point in the baby's development and the thought of losing her or him makes me sick to the stomach. But I also know that I have to rest and stay positive. To add to this, I live on a military base with no friends, and my family live 3,000+ miles away in England. My husband and stepchildren are being great, but I just feel very alone.

Did anyone else experience an emergency so early on in the second trimester? What advice can you give me? How did you stay positive when you still had so far to go?
