Hello!

I am on week 32 now. They detected hourglass membranes at my routine ultrasound I had at 19 weeks. Hourglassing of membranes is basically where the water bag comes out and the cervix is already open. My cervix was dialated 5-6cm when the doctor pushed the membranes back in to place an emergency cerclage. We met with six different doctors in NH before we found one willing to attempt the cerclage. The doctors were very pessimistic. Now the two doctors I meet with are very optimistic because my cerclage has been stable for a little over 12 weeks now. I am on bed rest at home. I have another doctors appointment tomorrow but it is with my regular Obgyn and not my high risk MFM doctor. I hope everyone has a good week!

UpdAte!!!31 weeks today. Went to specialist and cervix held steady no changes!!!!! Doctor was so surprised, this is the first time I have felt so optimistic that I'm going to make it to at least the 36 week mark ( I make big goals). Cervix is still closed and measuring 1.4cm, cerclage holding strong !!! Without bedrest and cerclage we would have never made it. Feeling so blessed !!!!  A little history had a emergent rescue cerclage placed at 21 weeks for. bulging membranes, dilated and no measureable cervix at the time of placement. Have been on strict bed rest, procardia to prevent contractions, and vaginal progesterone.

I am 35 weeks now, and I am still staying in the hospital. I am moving around more. My cervix is 100% effaced and dilated at 4cm. Baby is still feet breech. I have a C-section scheduled on Aug 24. I hope my baby will stay put until then.
