    Girls... Just wondering which hospitals your stitches were done at? I lost my baby at 19.5 weeks 2 weeks ago, but the ob that saw me said she would rather monitor me closely than give me a stitch, but I wouldn't 'rather' lose another baby before they will stitch me :/

    Mine was done at Northpark private by steve Hatzikostas

    I'd be asking for it to be done if they think that's what caused your loss..

    Hi Woody - firstly I'm very sorry for you loss.

    But I think if I was you I would possibly seek a second opinion.

    I think i have travelled the "watch & closely monitor" path and my outcome was DS came at 23 weeks stillborn. The reason we went that way was my DD was born at 32wks(3rd tri)& IC usually show up as a 2nd tri loss plus no one looked at my cervix when I went into labour with her (until later) so I had no proof it was IC. ............So with DS I had a u/s every 2wks & lots of r/v's but my cervix went from 3.5cm to a full funnel with membranes bulging in 2wks with absolutely no symptoms. Sure I had a feeling a pressure and was having heaps of BH but so can any normal preg lady, and obs was aware but my scans where good.
    So my recommendation to you, based on my experience is to get the stitch, if you dont end up funneling that's no big deal the complications from a stitch are minimal but the outcome from no stitch is one you and I know know well and Im sure you dont want to travel that path again.

    I still havent managed to get preg but when I do its a (TVC) stokdar cerclage (?sp)- is what I will get, its Obs preference, as they are higher up than Mcdonalds and apparently are the preference of the Women's in Melb where my ob is high risk dr.

    Someone mention the TAC above: My understanding is you have to 'fail' a TVC to get a TAC which is harsh but a TAC is permanent ie have to have c/s etc afterwards & its abdo surgery.

    I wish you well with your future pregnancies

    That's good news that your stitch is working xo do you have to be on bed rest?

    I did a test yesterday and I'm officially utd, oops I was told to wait 3 mths but I had an ultrasound and it looked like I had polycystic ovaries so I thought we would have a lot of trouble falling pregnant this time. Obviously not- I'm only 4 weeks so early days and I expect I'll miscarry early if my body just isn't ready to go through this again.

    I have an appointment at the royal women's next week so we will discuss the stitch then. I just don't want to go the 'wait and see' route so trying to learn as much as I can now because I know the ob I am seeing prefers to monitor me this time and see how I go, but I'm not happy doing that.
