Pregnant after a Loss

Cervical Cerclage Success Stories

Hi Everyone,
I am 23 weeks and I am posting here to see if anyone has any cervical cerclage success stories you could share with me to pick me up? I am currently on modified bed rest after getting a cerclage put in at 21 weeks for cervical funneling after weeks of a cervix that was "on the shorter side of normal range/2.7 mm).

I have had 6 losses before- none of them being from IC, so this is new for me. My doc knew that this would be an issue as I have had many uterine surgeries before this pregnancy which can cause a weaker cervix. I am grateful she caught it when she did but could use some encouragement.

Re: Cervical Cerclage Success Stories

  • I don't have any stories from my personal experience, but one of my friends lost their first to IC and has had cerclages with her subsequent pregnancies and now has 2 happy and healthy girls. 

    Hoping everything works out well for you!

  • I do not have a cerclage but I have been on strict bedrest since 25 weeks due to a short cervix. I'm on progesterone vaginally every night. I'm currently 31 weeks and it's kept it stable. I get measured every week and it's stayed between 1.5 and 1.7. Hope all goes well!

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

  • Hi, 

    I just had a cerclage placed on April 21st, so I am in the nervous boat with you.  I start progesterone shots this week.  I will be 16 weeks.  I lost my daughter at 21 weeks due to IC (they think), so my doctor decided to put the cerclage in.  Better to be safe than sorry.  This time we are expecting a boy!  I wish I could enjoy my pregnancy, but, nonetheless, I worry.......constantly.  My doctor has put the (bed rest) talk on the table, but, I am not having to do that just quite yet.  Eeek!  I am not sure how we would survive if I had to be on bed rest.  My income pays most of the bills.  Plus, with insurance coverage, my shots will still cost $107.00 bucks.  I will be receiving a total of 21 of them.  Adds up fast!  My little boy is the most important, so I will do whatever it takes.  I just pray I get my full term lil' guy.
