Cerclage

I am 35 weeks I had my cerclage put in at 22weeks n have gone every 2weeks to get my cervix measured. Now the cerclage did its job my cervix went from .5 to 3 cm so now when it gets taken out will it be difficult for my to have to baby like as far as being over due or not dialating??

Hi!
Usually the cerclage is removed at about 36 weeks and often the patient will deliver shortly thereafter.  Sometimes there is scarring of the cervix which in my experience can usually be stretched with the examining hand and no need for anything else. btw  women with a cervical length of 3 cm are very unlikely to deliver early, so that is great!  Very preferable to deliver at 41 than at 31 weeks!
Good luck!

I'm 37+1 (Friday). I had my cerclage placed around 22w and was just removed Monday. It depends on your body as to when labor will start. Walking, having sex (semen contains prostaglandins that when placed on cervix helps to efface and dilate), orgasms, nipple stimulation (releases oxytocin  which cause contractions), etc that can help baby come on time. Google search "natural ways to induce labor". That should help u.
