cervical cerclage and bed rest

My last pregnancy ended at 22 weeks due to cervical issues/infection. So this pregnancy, my Dr. wanted to monitor me with weekly us's from 16-24 weeks. Last week as exciting, finding out we have a little boy. This week was very different. My Dr noticed that my cervix looked like it was funneling a little. So I went to the perinatologist for a second opinion and at first she wasn't too concerned but wanted to do another u/s on Monday. After we got to talking for a bit, she asked me if I would allow her to do a internal check so she could feel - I sure am glad I did because she found that I was almost 2cm dialated and lost most of my cervical mucus too. So I went in a had a stitch put in. I had some bleeding so they kept me overnight for onservation and was released today. I am so thankful to be with you ladies today but could you say a prayer for me that after this procedure and a week on bed rest that my cervix holds strong and that I carry our son, Will full term? Thank you so much for all of your support ladies!

So glad she checked. Just take it easy. rest rest rest.

I know you are terrified but try not to stress too much.

Praying for you- both for the baby to stay in there and that you can make it to the end.

Dear God, please give Lori and her doctors wisdom. Please help little Will to stay put and be strong and healthy and stay put until June. In Jesus' name, amen.

The good thing about bed rest is that you'll get plenty of sleep before the baby comes! That was a good catch by the perinatologist. Sticky baby vibes for the next few months.
