Hello, I am Tasha, the BC for this board.
Here is a little about me.
I was diagnosed with Incompetent Cervix after I lost my 1st set of twins in 2007. I lost them due to PTL, Doc negligence and IC.
My 2nd pregnancy was a 2nd set of twins, in which i switched Doctors. They placed me on Bed rest at 12wk and my cerclage was placed at 14wks. I did 1 month of hospital bed rest after my cervix went from 4.0 at 22wk to .7 at 24wk. I received steroid shots to mature the twins lungs just in case they were to be born early. I was on bed rest a total of 26wks. I delivered the twins at 34wks 1d via emergency c-sec. They are now 2yrs old.
I am currently pregnant with 1 baby. I also have a cerclage for this pregnancy which was placed at 15wks. Everything was fine and i did not need bed rest until 25wk. My cervix was funneling and was 1.3. I was put in the hospital for the weekend and given steroid shots again to mature the baby's lungs. After my weekend in the hospital, i was released and sent on bed rest. At 27wks, My cervix was 70% effaced and funneled to the stitch. I am now on strict bed rest as the stitch is the only thing keeping me pregnant. I am also receiving progesterone (17p) shots, which keep the uterus calm and helps prevent PTL.
--My thoughts go out to each and everyone of you-- I hope that your pregnancies are uneventful and those baby's stay put!!!
