Hey There Missed You!
Oh my goodness! What is going on with the blood in the urine? It could be just a kidney stone because that happened to me.Yes I had a leep also about 11 yrs ago.
but my cervix has always measured good except last year at 21 weeks something just happened. I have learned from my RE & OB the pre-term last year that infections can cause you to contract, loosen the cervix to cause pre-term labor so fast without warning. So we have become germ freaks at my house with DH working away we bleach everything.:cheer:
Yes the cerclage has put my mind at ease a little while. It is better to get one earlier at 14-20 weeks then after that because the less tissue the chances are lowered without strict bedrest such as hospitalizations. I still have discomfort but when examined she said that it is just the cerclage site and since the uterus is stretching out I am most likely feeling the wire. The other thing is that my OB says the cerclage works best with limited muscle contraction activities such as driving, housework, lifting, and bending over. Also of course no intercourse or play.:flower: I am so active but boy I am getting creative in bed:flower:.
Today just is so lousy with stomach issues but I plan on ordering a movie on demand.:flower: I think I might invest in Netflicks or something. I know I need to save but my brain needs to be at ease. Also I need to look into gallon water delivery. I want to just have it in the bedroom so I can sip warm or cold water without getting up too much.
I’ll be praying or you over the next 2 weeks.
My advice is try to do as little as you can. Keep you legs elevated a little when you sit(recliner) and if you lay down, try to lay flat. Don’t lift or bend and if you start cramping in the middle below belly button go and it hurts to walk-go to ER immediately. Don’t wait -okay.
[QUOTE=JH77]I’m getting my check in 2 weeks to see if I need cerclage placement. I have such bad cramps and ligament pain that I almost want it to keep my mind at ease.
I had a leep conization about 8 years ago so my cervix may be to short. We’ll see! First, we have to figure out why they found traces of blood in my urine, oh joy.
How was the placement Esperanza? Are you put out? Congrats on doing so well with sticking to bedrest, you rock![/QUOTE]
