I took a h.p.t. thursday and i am pregnant. according to the calculator on this site i am due 2/2/12. My last pregnancy ended one day shy of 16 weeks because of an incompetent cervix. it has been four years since we lost our son and i am afraid. i know that god is with me and will keep us safe, but i still worry a lot. can anyone relate or at least give me wisdom?? thanks -----worried mommy-to-be
*lurking from 2nd trimester* I had 2 mc one at 5 weeks and the other at 6 weeks, I am now 17 weeks along and doing pretty well... the more time that goes by the more confident I am that I will carry this baby to term... :) just remember relax, it will be ok :) sticky bean dust to you!!!
I've heard they can do a cervical cerclage (sp?)- basically sew the cervix shut until close to the time of delivery to ensure that there are no repeat problems with cervical incompetence. I understand the proceedure is very effective. Good luck- I hope everything goes well. Check out the pregnancy after loss thread for more support if you haven't already.
