Hey all, this is my second cerclage, my first was done as emergent at 18 weeks. I am almost 15 weeks now and it was done a little over a weeks ago. I have not been put on bedrest or anything yet this time, but I am taking it easy. I am having some pinching feelings that feel like they may be coming from the stitch. I don't know if it is from my cervix or maybe the stitch rubbing up again the vaginal wall?? Either way I think I remember feeling the same thing with my first cerclage but I'm not sure... I was just at the Dr. on Weds. She checked me then, cervix high and closed, baby sounded fine on doppler, she said everything looked great... I hate to call again because I think this might be normal, especially since I just had the cerclage put in and my body is still getting used to a foreign body being there... but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this or knows where I might find some info on what is "normal" after a cerclage? I tried to google it, but didn't find much other than why they are done, success rates, and risks...
bump! sorry, I usually don't do this, I hate bumping my own posts, but I know there are some other cerclage momma's out there... or maybe some people that are better at internet research than I?? Anyone???
I haven't had any bleeding, and I'm not really concerned. But this pinching is driving me crazy LOL!
