4 Years Later...
« on: June 30, 2015 at 03:10 PM »
Hi everyone! I was on this forum 4 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. I spent 12 weeks on bedrest starting at 22 weeks with a short cervix and an emergency cerclage. I was on a variety of meds, in and out of the hospital a few times before delivering at 35 weeks because my water broke. It was an emotional time and having this forum helped me get through the days!

My daughter just celebrated her 4th birthday and is a happy, healthy little girl. Every year on her birthday I remember how scared I was during my pregnancy and am thankful for the community of women I found here during that time :)

I am SO thankful for her and just wanted to offer you all encouragement as you deal with a stressful, high risk pregnancy! You can do it and, in the end, it will be totally worth it!

Thanks for sharing your story. I have been on bed rest 3 weeks already and had a rescue cerclage placed about a week ago. Hearing your encouraging story is motivating especially on a day like today were I am sooooo frustrated with laying in bed. Everything aches and nothing I do seems to give me relief. Ugh!!!!
