New to the group, and as I have read some of the posts, I figured I would share my issues. I am on pregnancy number 4. I have a 6 and a 7 year old at home. My oldest was born at 34 weeks, the pregnancy was simple, very few signs no morning sickness and I gained maybe 20lbs. I woke up that morning gushing blood, ran to the hospital and delivered my son a few hours later. He did very well an was only kept 8 days. I was told it was due to placenta abruption. When we found out we were pregnant with my daughter, I was assured everything would be fine, it rarely happens more then once. At 28 weeks I was admitted in full labor, they were able to stop it with mag and consistent shots for awhile but I delivered her at 31 weeks 5 days, she also did amazing and came home a few days later... Again I was told placenta abruption. A few years later I found out I was pregnant again and a nervous wreck. They were telling me it would be fine and of course they were wrong again.. My angel baby was born at 24 weeks with no nicu any where near he didn't make it. They once again said placenta abruption. Though I knew they were wrong. I am now 26 weeks and this time i demanded a specialist, who properly diagnosed all my issues, my main one being IC. I had a cerclage inserted at 13 weeks. Though the last three week have been miserable I have had strong contractions almost non stop they gave me meds to try and control them since they weren't considered active yet... But I have an appt this morning to be monitored and checked since the meds have done nothing. Has anyone else had these issues with a cerclage?
