I had an emergency McDonald cerclage places at 22 weeks. I am now 28 weeks. Over the last fortnight I have experienced some pulling/pinching/ shooting sensations. I had my cervix checked a couple of days ago and it’s currently sitting around 2cm for the last few weeks. My specialist couldn’t explain the sensations other than maybe it’s the tie rubbing against  my vaginal wall.
Anyone else had these sensations??
I have not experienced any of these in my three previous straight forward pregnancies.

Hi ladies,

This is my 5th pregnancy. I had three full term pregnancies without complications. Last year I suffered a missed miscarriage.
 I am currently 26 weeks pregnant. I was diagnosed with a large hematoma at 7 weeks. I bled until 22 weeks and it has finally resolved.
At my 20 week morphology scan I had a long Closed cervix. 2 weeks later it had shrunk by half. A week of progesterone later and my cervix had shrunk again. I had emergency surgery for a cerclage the next day at 22+6. On the op table I was effaced, 4cm dilated and membranes and bub protruding.
They managed the pop my membranes in and secure with a cerclage at about 1cm.
I then had a few days bed rest and reduced activity. A week later my cervix was 3cm!
I recently had a scan at 26 weeks after reduced activity and some bed rest, also progesterone, and my cervix has reduced again to 1.6cm.
The last month has turned me into an anxious head case. I worry about every niggle and pain. I also worry that the drs do not think I need steroids yet. However I have very quick labour sand this makes me worry I won’t get them in time. My next appointment and scan isn’t until 28 weeks. I really hope I get there!
