My first appointment at the high risk clinic on Thursday went really well. They spent about an hour and a half with me which was great - I even got to meet this professor guy who wanted to meet me. So we went through my history and talked a bit about my last pregnancy and about losing Ruby etc.
They have decided not to give me the cervical stitch at this point and just monitor my cervix with fortnightly scans instead. I am kind of worried about this and kind of relieved at the same time. I am relieved because I know the stitch can cause miscarriage and this has had me freaked out for a while but I am also worried about not having it in case I did lose Ruby to an incompetant cervix.
They are saying, because it is more likey that I lost Ruby because of my antiphospholipid syndrome and the massive blood clot rather than an incompetant cervix , they think the risk outweighs the benefit of having it done. I guess I just have to trust what they are saying and hope it's the right decision. Because it is a renowned professor that has decided this and he has a lot of knowledge around cervical incompetance, this makes me feel a lot better.
So I still have my weekly scans at the recurrent pregnancy loss clinic till 13 weeks and then I graduate from there and have fortnightly appointments and scans at the high risk clinic. I am feeling well looked after :)
