    I have tried taking milk out of my diet, but I must admit just milk, althought I do not eat much other dairy at all, and it made no difference at all. I also cut out citrus fruit and chocolate (let me tell you that was hard), still no difference. I just bought a product called colic calm, and it really seems to help, anyone heard of it or used…[Read more]

    I cannot believe my time is almost here, my cerclage will be removed next Thursday at 36w5days. I cannot believe I had no bedrest no complications, just a normal pregnancy. My last pregnancy was disasterous with 13 weeks of bedrest, but all ended well. All I hoped and prayed for is that I would just have a normal pregnancy so I could take care…[Read more]

    missyminx- to do a cerclage at this point may put you into labour especially since the cervix is so short, that is why they would not do it for me at 20 weeks, it was that at 23 weeks I was going to have these babies that they put in the emergency cerclage, they had no other choice. These high risk docs know what they are doing, they see these…[Read more]

    adriana03-they put in mine with my last pregnancy at 23 weeks, I was 4 cm dilated and no cervix left. They managed to pull it all back together, and my cervix measured 0.9 cm after that, it stayed that way unitl 33 weeks, when my water broke and they actually took the stitch out, but even at that time the stitch was fine.

    mammadee-I don’t know if you are on bedrest, and if they recommeded it, but do just that. There are lots of people here that have gotten very far on bedrest, strict bedrest. My last pregnancy was twins, and at 23 weeks they put in a emergency cerclage, because I was 4 cm dilated and no cervix left at all, they managed to pull it back together,…[Read more]

    2ndtry-I was on bedrest with my twins from week 20 – 33, but had a emergency cerclage place at 23 weeks, because the cervix was only 0.5 after the stitch I was still on bedrest. This pregnancy I had a preventative cerclage placed at 15 weeks and everything is still great now at 28 weeks. I have not been on bedrest yet, actually no restrictions…[Read more]

    jbnurse: They put the cerclage in at 23 weeks because there really was no other choice. I was ready to have these babies. They did not want to put one in at 20 when I was 0.9 cm, because they were afraid to start labour, since it already was so short. But at 23 weeks I was 4 cm dilated already, they had no other choice. also they would not do…[Read more]

    I am one of those unlucky mothers that even thought I exclusively breastfeeding, and pump 3 times a day i got my period at week 4, my son is now 12 weeks. I just got my period again, and for the first time I see a great decrease in supply. I did not realize it at first, because sometimes when I pump I just don’t get a let-down, but realize today…[Read more]

    charlihadley- I had the same thing, spinal wilth my last and general with this one, and I like the general much better, you don’t have any more pain than with the spinal, you are just much more groggy. I hate spinals, and can’t stand laying there with my legs wide open while they work on you, so this was great for me. Good luck, it will be ok

    babyinjuly09 – I had steroid shots with my last pregancy at 22 weeks, and beside the fact that it really hurt when they injected it, I had no other side efffects. How great that you have your c-section in 3 weeks already, I really wish I was that far. Good luck

    I had my doctors appointment last Friday, and my cervix measured 3.4 cm I am 30 weeks, it seems to get longer as I go, she talked about 36 weeks, and the removal of the cerclage, and said she would’nt be suprised if I still went overdue (my first one I went 17 days overdue, without a cerclage)I just can’t imagine worrying so much, and it then just…[Read more]

    Halina- When I was pregnant with my twins 3 years ago I went for my 20 week check-up and my cervix was 0.5 cm and had funneled almost wide open at the top. The doc was afraid to put in a cerclage at that point since he was sure I was going into labour. I went on strict hospital bedrest, and it all remained the same until week 23.

They managed to pull the cervix back together and stitch it up, the procedure took over 2.5 hours because it was so diffifult, and the doctor said he had not done one like this ever.

    Artisticchic – thanks so much for the reply, I usually do my chores in the morning, and rest for the remainder of the day, but still feel I do to much. My Doc did not give me any restictions, but I am worried. How long is your cervix, and how long when they put the cerclage in. Mine was only 2.5 when they put the cerclage in at week 15.5 but…[Read more]
