We are fresh off the loss of our miracle DEIVF Baby boy back in September @16 weeks.
I had a textbook pregnancy and my son was growing exactly as he should -everything was perfect. Then one night I wake up with cramps and lower back pain and I know that I need to go the ER. My water breaks in the ER lobby and I am admitted to L&D to deliver my son. I have a D&C 2 days later as my body is unable to pass the placenta. In post-op my doctor said that my cervix was weakened/incompetent and the miscarriage was not something they knew would happen until it did. After the fog lifted a week or so later I was angry as to why this was not found earlier. I resolve myself to the fact they they saw nothing wrong on my U/S so they wouldn't have known to check for it. My baby boy was growing right on schedule, and put too much pressure on my cervix.
Most days I am okay, but I know that my baby would want me to try to be happy and move forward. That is the PC response I give to most people who ask, but to those ladies who (unfortunately) know what I am going through- you can probably guess how I am really feeling so i wont go into much detail.
With that being said, we are re-attempting IVF. My OB was very positive that with a cervical stitch at around 10-12 weeks that I will be able to carry to full term.
So my questions are:
How many of you suffered a loss due to an issue with the cervix? Is it really a common cause of miscarriage? How many of you after having the stitch put in place were able to resume normal activities during the remainder of your pregnancy? How many of you had to be on bed rest or other severe restrictions for the remaining weeks of your pregnancy?
