I lost my first baby at 23.3. This time I had the cerclage and everything went relatively smoothly. I carried to 37 weeks and my cervix was still pretty long when I delivered. The only reason I couldn't have gone to 40 was because I had a vertical scar on my uterus, so they had to get her out. Good luck!

I know how that goes... the only thing that kept me up and positive after we lost our first baby is my religion and faith in something more then just the here and now. I knew I was ready to try again because I prayed about it and felt good about it and I knew that no matter the outcome I still find joy in being a mother in whatever capacity I can. Im 19 weeks now and counting. I was really scared at first and had dreams I was in labor and would wake up thinking that they were real! but those are gone now and I am nothing but hopefull and happy! Im trying to just enjoy being pregnant. I have awesome drs and a very supportive husband! good luck =)

Hi, we lost our son Nathaniel on November of 2006 due to IC at 18 weeks.....I got pregnant 6 weeks later (miracle) and we took no chances....cerclage was put in place at 16 weeks and I carried to term (induced at 39 weeks) he was healthy and weighed 7lbs6oz.....He is 2 years old now and I am pregnant again, due in December, had another cerclage put in at 13 weeks and no complications to speak of. My Cerclage will be coming out November 30th (36 weeks).....If you have any questions or need any support you can contact me....

I am not pregnant yet, but been trying for baby #2 for the last 2years. My son turned 3yrs last month. I know I will need a cerclage at 11wks and that is about all I know for sure until the time comes, then I will find out more. I do worry about how my second pregnancy will go but I have a great peri and he will help me through it, along with this awesome group!
