Incompetent Cervix Success Stories
I'm working on our incompetent cervix information for our complications cubby. If you've had a successful pregnancy with an incompetent cervix, I hope you'll consider sending me your success story!
I'd also love to include information on what it feels like to have a cerclage and what it feels like to have it removed. Let me know what type of cerclage you had (McDonald, Shirodkar, or abdominal), what procedures the doctors used (anesthetic, prep, etc), how long your hospital stay was, how long you had to be on bedrest afterwards, how far along you were when it was placed . . . was it successful . . . what did they do when the stitch was removed (unless you had an abdominal cerclage), how soon did you deliver afterwards . . . etc.
Sharing this type of information with women who will be in your shoes with their pregnancies will be so helpful!
