I just found out over Thanksgiving holiday that I was pregnant. My husband and I have been trying for nearly 5 years, with the help of fertility meds, IUI's, and IVF's for three years. This past summer we lost our first baby. He was supposed to be born in November. We are pregnant again and excited. We find out in a couple of weeks whether it is one or two. Had two embryoes transferred. God is so good!!! Can't wait to hear the little heartbeat, or heartbeats. My due date is on August 7th. But will probably go before then because at week 14 I will have my cervix closed with stitches and they will cut those stiches at week 36.
Yes. The reason I lost my baby this past summer was due to a weak cervix. So, they are going to do a cerclage to keep my cervix closed, God willing, until week 36. Then they go in and clip the stitch. In most cases, once the cerclage is removed the mother goes into labor within a week. The little baby I lost this past summer was perfect in every way, so the dr feels this is my best plan of action to keep from repeating.
