Hello ladies

I'm new here! I live in Pretoria, South Africa. I've had a pretty sad pregnancy history so far and I was diagnosed with a weak cervix after my 2nd second trimester loss in 2016. I'm currently 23 weeks pregnant and I had a transabdominal cerclage (TAC) placed pre-pregnancy in 2017. My pregnancy has been great thus far except for a brief stint in L&D due to a bladder infection/yeast infection. This past Wednesday my ob/gyn noticed some funneling above the TAC. The funneling bit was about 1cm and the cervix below theTAC 2.5cm and closed. My dr made me stress with her reaction and ordered me to be on bedrest. A follow-up scan yesterday showed a funnel of only 0.6cm and a closed cervix of 3cm. The dr said I must still be off my feet.

I honestly don't know what is good or not and whether to stress or not. With my history, I struggle to stay positive that this pregnancy will work out. Some say a bit of funneling above the TAC is normal and some think it's a concern. In addition, my on/off bladder infections/yeast infections are driving me crazy!

I'm committed to stay on bedrest for as long as necessary but didn't even think it was necessary with this cerclage. My next appointment is on Wednesday.

I really hope I can remain positive.

I'm happy to have found this group.
