    He weights 350g grams - apparently the right weight for this gestation. here I was worried I wasnt eating as much due to my gastic banding in place!!

    Hi kyahli,

    I had a stitch put in on 28/12 at 11.5 weeks (a little earlier as ob was going away). I was scared about m/c risk but so far so good. I will have it removed at 36 weeks.

    You have had your bubs early. What are your concerns with the stitch?

    Hi! I cant give you much info yet, but Im having my stitch next week (20th) at 13wks so Ill let you know how it all goes after that. My cervix is being good so far but its only early days.
    I know after the stitch I have to have a u/s every 2nd week and see my ob every 2-3 weeks afterwards. Along with no exercise, lifting & sex. I dont have to do any bedrest until I have funnelling but fingers crossed it stays ok, but realistically I know its going to happen at some point.

    Good luck with your pregnancy

    I too have a stitch in from 12weeks due to losing my son at 18 weeks last year due to IC.

    I'm 23weeks tomorrow and all is well. I've been told no s.ex, no swimming or baths, no heavy lifting or long walks or standing for prolonged periods and more recently no long distance travel.
    But it's painless execpt when my little Bub actually jumps on it but my cervix has had the opportunity to get some length so I've had no funneling yet or anything major.

    I see my OB once a month but I've been on modified bed rest since the operation so most of the day I am laying down or sitting in a reclined chair.

    If you need to know anything else don't be afraid to ask.

    (edit: I have been keeping a blog and I have detailed the operation in a post so if you want to know what will go down there's plenty of info in there)

    I too have IC i had an emergency Suture on 7/12/11 at 19 weeks... I had been on strict bedrest since as it wasn't as successful as first thought.. I was home for the first 4 weeks but had spotting and now in hospital til bun arrives.. I am currently 24 weeks 5 days so praying we get longer.. I have had contractions well they think they were but they got in early with nifedipine and now i have this every 6 hours to help.. I have had two steroid shots to help bub lungs.. We have met with the nciu director that was hard.. He came and spoke to me on my own first as DH was organizing things, then he came back the next day and spoke to both of us.. We are lucky we have the same views DH and I so we have our limits etc. We get a scan on bub next week to check size, they are saying they think bub is a good size so that is a blessing..

    We are both pretty positive I think you can't let yourself get in a dark place at this stage.. Being in hospital has probably put me at ease a little knowing I can just buzz the nurses if I am not sure of something.. I am hoping we are in here for some time and then bub arrives

    I hope your all going well with it girls.. My OB had been great I can give details if your in Brisbane

    Just my advice rest rest!! You can do it I never thought I would be able to lay around for five weeks well nearly six but you can honestly you know your doing it for bub xx

    THANK YOU SO MUCH LADIES!!
    ok, i obviously cant get 40 weeks out of a pregnancy, so they are going to try to put the stitch in and see how it goes as we really dont want a pre 30 weeker, or misscarriage mid trimester... i am freaking out big time... really dont want medical intervention, as last time was very very traumatic due to the drs not listenin to me and william being born in green yuck and my uterus was severly infected as result nearly loosing us both... ( sorry if tmi) ... ICU is not a good place to be after having a baby!!
    i am only in early stages now, went to dr yesterday and she obviously had alarm bells going off in her head, and was attimant that she will push for ob to do stitch... so i get to go and do all the hoop jumping to see what the next step is..
    i dont know what other options there are, if any?? just so many questions going through my head...
    thanks for your insight though...

    If you don't want the stitch you can have your cervix measured every week to see if it's shorting. If it is shorting they place in a emergency suture, but chances are higher if it's placed in early.

    Unfortunately there's not much choice to how IC can be treated. It is high risk pregnancy as well do you will have to have some kind of doctor/specialist around for most of it.

    I'm so sorry about your traumatic birth of William. /hugs
