    LOL No problem! I didn’t know what it was until I got it! Its a heart med (Nifedipine) that is used to keep preterm labor at bay. It calms the smooth muscle (i.e. the heart or uterus) and reduces contractions. It has really helped with my BH contractions. I did not have it with the last pregnancy so it was new to me for this one!!

    Oneday~anxious to hear if your stitch came out!! let us now how it went! I had a trip to the L&D today…had my first episode with bleeding today. Has some on the tissue so I drove myself in. I was a nervous wreck. Turns out the baby and I are doing fine and I am back home. They don’t know what it was, but there was no active bleeding. I had…[Read more]

    Hi girls! So, i had my weekly cervix check yesterday and it was not what I was hoping for at all. I went from 25mm to 16mm in a week. the scary part was that it looked like it was opened a bit through the stitch! not good. I am in bed full time now, well flat on the recliner. My DD is in daycare again which really helps and my hubby is…[Read more]

    mbcanton~First off, you came to the right place! We have all dealt with short cervix and other complications. Is this your first pregnancy? if so, be thankful that they are watching you so soon. Many of us, like BeeGee, have lost one or more angels due to IC. I lost mine at 23 wks. I had my DD after an emergent cerclage and 10 wks of bed…[Read more]

    2angelbabies~ Great to get this far! Why are they giving you steroids already? I got them at 25 wks with my DD but that was because I had some bleeding which scared us all. this time I asked and they said I would get them only if I showed signs of labor. I’m glad they are taking care of you so well!
    Good luck with your check tomorrow, mine is…[Read more]

    oneday~thanks, I am and congrats on the stitch removal!!! how exciting!! Dominique~ I had my stitch removed and had my DD 1.5 days later. I was having mild contractions when they took it out which is why I think it went so quick. I think it all depends on if you are in labor already or not. I was 2cm after it came out and just about 4 when I…[Read more]

    dmayala~that’s pretty normal. I am constantly checking the tissue. I even check with tissue without having to pee because I an paranoid. I think it’s just one of those things we have to deal with. =) I talked to OneDay a few days ago and she was still waiting for something to happen.

  • KTPregers replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    dmayala~ congrats on the good check up! another week down!

  • KTPregers replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    Muskokan- I agree with you, I just called work to say I wouldn’t be coming in tomorrow or monday and wrote my dr. to say I don’t think 4 hrs is worth it. thanks for the comment!! mymiracle1- great news! keep it up!

    Hi ladies! I just had a cerclage put in on Thursday at 13 weeks. I had a loss at 23 wks, w my daughter, I had a rescue cerclage at 18 wks and bedrest for 10 weeks. she came at 34 weeks perfectly healthy. This pregnancy has been ok so far. I am worried about not having bedrest though. I may ask for it soon. I will be starting p17 at 16wks…[Read more]

    goddess~sounds like we are in the same boat. I am so scared that something will happen. I keep my feet up as much as possible but still have to come to work and take care of my 18month old! i see my DR. for my follow up tomorrow afternoon so we will see how it is all looking. As much as I love not being on bed rest like last time, i am a…[Read more]

    punkin~ so happy to hear you are hanging in there! every day with baby in your success gets higher!! I have not heard that bulging through a cerclage is common dmayala. When mine happened, I had no cerclage at that time and I had dilated with no pain or bleeding. for the most part, a cercage, when placed properly, will do it’s job. I have…[Read more]

    krystlehicks~ my last cerclage was placed emergent once my cervix was found to be below 2.5cm. My dr. want to place it at 13-16 wks if there is a history and with my first one, they did not like anything below 2.5. Clearly, opinions change from dr. to dr. but I know it’s hard to trust sometimes. Prayers and belly hugs coming your way!!

I was 4 cm and 100% effaced when I got there, pitocin for about 30 min and my contractions went on their own after that. after 5 hours I was ready to push, but 2 things against me…the epidural didn’t work all the way, I…[Read more]
