IC is by definition "symptomless" but many ladies have both such as I do. You will find it difficult to get a Ob to stitch you for just IU, as the risks associated with the stitch out way the benefits for a normal cervix that isnt short or showing signs of shortening in early preg to be left alone.

    The drip you are referring to is that Magnesium? As I dont think Nifedipene comes in IV form, its a really old drug.

    Oh I got my stitch at 12 weeks, you can have them put in up to 20weeks after that it is to dangerous as the Dr is likely to burst your membranes.

    After my last pregnancy I spent alot of time researching both topics and not just with google
    Hi SOrry, My drip was not nefidipine and I dont think it was Magnesium either. This was a 2x 6 course drip and I had to have them x2 as after the first course the contractions returned. This was done in South Africa, and cost a fortune!

    Oh Zanne, thats no good you are dilating, fingers crossed something will slow your progression and you will make it closer to term. I wish you all the best

    I think I know now which contractions are causing my cervix to change, next time I get those I will just go straight to the hospital. Yeah, I have a variety of different contractions...if it was so scary it would be funny!
