    @KitiK - I had my cervix removed (radical trachelectomy) due to cervical cancer. I do have a stitch, but am at a huge risk of infection/preterm labour etc.

    Oh wow @jonesgirl1980 that must be scary! Fx for a pregnancy as long as possible with a nice healthy bub at the end.

    Can I ask how old you were when your cancer was detected? Was it a routine pap smear or did something else tell you something wasn't right? Just interested to hear more about your story - and how you have coped with 2 pregnancies (so far) post! My gf was unlucky and passed away at 27 from a cervical cancer that was not detected (she never had pap smears!) and it spread. She left behind 3 little kiddies - so sad

    @KitiK - after having my daughter at 26 weeks, I was on a mission to find answers. Although there is still no reason for her early birth, one of the things I did was have my pap smear. I was overdue for this - just one of those things that always got put off due to what I thought were "more important things" - certainly learnt my lesson there! I have been told since, that going earlier for my smear may not have helped anyhow as I had adenocarcinoma which is found further up the cervix and generally is at the stage mine was when it is discovered anyhow. I know my pregnancy is risky, but I just believe that I have been absolutely blessed to be given this chance after everything else!

    Morphology scan tomorrow - praying everything is good with bub & hoping we can find out the gender!!

    So sorry to hear about your friend too - I know people that won't even go for a smear, although my story has also encouraged some of my friends to not put off their smears!

    I had just turned 30 when I had my abnormal smear.

    Yes, I know so many women who just don't/won't go and have one! It is a risk I am not willing to take. It makes me really upset that people don't just do it - my own sister is one of these people who hasn't had a smear since her last baby (he is nearly 9!) She is a heavy smoker too and I worry so much about her health! She knows how devastating it is to lose a friend to what seems an unnecessary oversight - a 5 minute discomfort and inconvenience. Anyway, each to their own I guess.

    Hope everything is great at your scan and you can find out the sex tomorrow - I hope you get whatever you might hope for!

    Thanks @KitiK - all three of us (myself, DH & DD) think it's a boy, but we don't care either way - having a child is just such a blessing in the first place

    This seems to be a very 'blue' thread so far! I hope you get a pidgeon pair!
