I just called to see another peri about a 2nd opinion. That's another fear that I'd reach a point when they wouldn't be able to do a cerclage, then end up on bedrest again... and with 3.5 year old twins, my work at home, and moving to a new house this summer, I dread the possibility of bedrest... 4 mos. of bedrest when I was pg. with the twins was bad enough, but I didn't have any other children to tend to, or work that had to be done...
My o.b. is a peri, and said he'd watch my cervix like a hawk every 2-3 weeks, but a lot can happen in that time... when my cervix funneled last time, I had no symptoms whatsoever... it was a complete surprise and shock. I wonder how much time there would have been if I didn't have my appointment on that day... what if it was a week later... would I have lost the pregnancy? can things happen that quickly?
Does anyone know the risks of doing a preventative cerclage? My current o.b. said there were slight risks of losing the pregnancy, but what about the risk of losing the pregnancy from doing nothing? What have your dr.s said?
