    Thanks frostysmum and rice.

    Rice: As hard as it can be some days, don't think about the things that can go wrong! Just enjoy your pregnancy It is so precious. You will be fine, stay positive! Thanks again for your warm words! I'm trying to stay strong! I'm hoping the pain will get easier when we can start trying again, I hate waiting.

    Has anyone had any experience with a cervical stitch?? I'm told I'm going to need it done next time even though I don't quite understand how that can prevent the membranes rupturing again. If anyone has any info that would be great.

    Mary---I was threatened with the cerclage with this pregnancy, as I lost one at 15 weeks with ruptured membranes, had spontaneous MC though by the time I got into FS's office baby was already in the birth canal, and I had pains the night before. Not sure what caused it, karyotype came back normal and placenta was normal-ish too. FS and Obs were weighing up whether to stitch me up this time at 12 weeks. I'm not keen to have it, as itself can provoke a miscarriage, causes infection and then premature rupture of membranes due to amnionitis. Can't win! As I was still bleeding this time, I've decided not to have the stitch (as it will stop any blood coming out), Obs had me on bedrest till 20 weeks, progesterone pessary till 33 weeks, it prevents the cervix softening and effacing, there's research to back it up that it does the same/better than the cervical cerclage. (but then you've been on the pessary/crinone too, I suppose they meant later in pregnancy).

    Frostysmum: Thanks so much for sharing, you've given me hope Were you on bedrest at home for the whole first 20 weeks?? I will speak to my FS about some of the issues you have raised when I see him in 6 weeks so your info is very helpful. So you never really got an answer as to why your membranes ruptured?? I'll have to wait to see the results of our pathology testing.

    Mary--Nope, it'll be easier if we've known so we know how to prevent it. He just kinda dropped out, and we had the nuchal scan 10 days prior everything was normal. The path report said there was no infection of the placenta either. I was at home on bedrest from 12 weeks till 20 weeks this time, I was only spotting prior to 12 weeks, so I went to work. But had a massive bleed at 12 weeks. Dr said if I continued to bleed at home she'll put me in hospital.

    Frostysmum: I was thinking to see the FS before 6 weeks but then again he won't have the pathology results and won't be able to give us any answers. So I guess I'll just have to wait. I did read that infection can cause membranes to rupture but we'll see I guess. I'm just wondering whether your FS told you whether membranes rupturing is just random bad luck and one of those things that is very unlikely to happen again OR if it happens once then it's likely to happen again??? Do you mind me asking if it was your first pregnancy you lost at the 15 wks? I'm hoping my body knows what to do know and it'll be easier to get pregnant next time but who knows!

    Mary---That was my 2nd BFP, but that was the only one that made it that far, the others I mc at around 6 weeks. As to whether it will rupture again, who knows, I guess they can never be sure as the cause is unknown.

    Frostysmum: Its so frustrating when you can't get any explanation. I'm hoping our pathology results will give us some hint as to what went wrong. I imagine I will be so petrified with any future pregnancy. I keep telling hubby maybe we just give up but then we came so far this time! I want to keep trying but it's so hard physically and emotionally.

    It's a hard slog Maryz -- and the ladies on here certainly know the ups and downs, and the rivers of tears shed for failed cycles, and lost chances. We took 4 years and 9 cycles to get pregnant, and now at 27 weeks I am still terrified something will go wrong.. If this one had not worked it would have been our last attempt !! I know there are many ladies out there who have spent many more years and many more cycles than us. When you have that little one in your arms I am sure it will be worth while ! Just remember there are lots of options !!

    cjm2: All the very best for a smooth rest of your pregnancy I know all about the tears and the heartache. Over 9 years IVF and still no baby, just one miscarriage. The tears are still flowing and I'm finding it hard to cope these days. But I also know that somehow I'll find the strength to keep trying, I've come too far this time to give up now.
