Pregnant after a Loss

Apparently, I am one of those freakish women who get a cerclage with no bedrest

Hi ladies,

I've been away for about a month helping DH get his new business off the ground, so I've missed a lot.  That and getting stuff ready for baby.

But it hit me this morning, I'm going to make it to removal without bed rest.  I'm kind of looking around bewildered thinking to myself that I had prepared for every possible contingency and well, here I am, still working, no major complications (aside from cervical irritation and some very early Braxton-Hicks) and no bed rest.

Not that I am complaining.  I love that baby is co-operating so well and staying put.  It's just disbelief.

My OB did say it was possible and that some women do go all the way through without anything, but at the time I didn't really believe it.  Mentally, I though, "yeah, but those women are freaks".

So here I sit, a "freak" IC woman, stunned.

  • Very exciting! One of the reasons I went with the TAC versus vaginal cerclage was to avoid bedrest (I knew I wanted to try for multiple kiddos after the loss and couldn't imagine it with one or more kids running around), so it's awesome to hear that you were able to make it through without having to do that!!!!  I wouldnt' be surprised if they clip it and then you go full term! Go cervix!


    I didn't have the choice of TAC versus TVC.  Here in Canada it's hard to find a doctor that will recommend a TAC before at least one failed TVC. Luckily, it seems that it's not an issue right now.

     I'm taking this all one pregnancy at a time.  Right now, I'm still going strong and everything is going okay.  After this LO is born, we'll evaluate if and when we will can try for a sibling, based on any scarring or other complications.  Regardless, we'll probably wait until after LO is old enough not to be picked up all the time.

  • Thank you for posting this, I love to hear success stories.  I've been a little nervous lately about bed rest in my future.  If I go on extended bed rest, I will basically lose my job because I only have so much STD and FMLA.  I've decided whatever will be will be, but it makes me so happy to hear of women who didn't need any bed rest...and I am glad for you too, what a relief that must be.

    Well, that's illegal. They don't have to pay you once you run out of leave options, but they can't fire you for going on medically required bed rest while pregnant.
