PROM at 21 weeks, bedrest in hospital
« on: April 27, 2012 at 09:00 AM »
Im writing this from my phone so its going to be tricky pls excuse any typos.
My membranes ruptured last night @ 21 weeks with cerclage. i went to the hospital and after hours of discussion
and deciding, we chose to have the cerclage removed due to PROM and infection plus my history of
'no contractions baby comes out'.
It hasnt been 24 hours since the cerclage came out but nothing has seemed to happen. a scan was done
after the removal and cervix was short but closed.
There is no way my membranes can reseal, ive never seen so much fluid in my child bearing career.

We all doubt i can get to 24 weeks in this mess but hey, miracles do happen right?

thank you so much for your thoughts. it's been 5 days now since my waters have broken and i'm back at home on strict bedrest and antibiotics around the clock.
i'm taking every hour as it comes and if i can get to viability i'll be readmitted back into hospital.
this is exactly what happened last time as well, PROM @ 24 weeks and PROM again @ 21 weeks. i wonder if this is a pattern of something which should be investigated further although there never seems to be any straight answers.
so i'm officially on bedrest from now on - praying this is a long journey for me and bubs

thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, as we can all understand here, with problems relating to premature births we do everything that we can for our little ones.
to get through each day, then each week are big milestones and deserve to be celebrated  :)
i chose to join keepemcookin with my pregnancy as it's a small community of bedrest mamas who share advice, knowledge, inspiration and stories and there is just an overwhelming amount of support here to one another.
there is so much positive attitude and wonderful happy endings through patience and perseverance.
my short journey will end from here, and i would like to thank everyone for everything that i have mentioned above.
occasionally i would like to drop by to continue to stay informed on any advances or trials done to prevent premature births.
from the bottom of my heart, i wish you all the best xo stay motivated and proactive and keep em cookin xox
