Follow-up visit to OB-kind of long

I lost my son a little more than a week ago. I was 16 weeks and 6 days pregnant. I have my follow-up visit with my OB on monday.  I orginally went to the ER because I was leaking fluid and thought I should get checked as a precautionary measure. As it turns out the fluid I was leaking was amnioutic fluid and I was already dialated 3 cm. I however did not have a contraction, I don't think... The OB that I saw when they wheeled me to the labor and delivery wing of the hospital told me I had an incompotent cervix.  I have been reading on-line about the condition and options for treatment but now I am not sure that what I have been reading is actually what caused me to lose my son.  My question is, how do I know if what he said is really true?  Is it possible that my cervix dilated which then cause the pre-term labor? 

Anyone have the same thing happen to them? What questions should I ask the doctor about it? 

I want to make sure that I do everything in my power to avoid losing another baby (although  I know it isn't all in my control) and so I want to be completely prepared when I see the doctor on monday.

  • I am so sorry for your loss.

    I am not 100% sure if there are any women on here that were diagnosed with IC. But I do know that there is at least one on PGAL right now and at least one on PAL. If you want, i'd direct your questions there. I wish I could help you out more.

  • So sorry for your loss. I lost my twins at 19 weeks due to an IC. They think my cervix opened early and I got an infection which caused my water to leak and a few days later I went into labor and had to deliver. My dr told me next time we will do a cerclage and also p17 injections to prevent preterm labor.
