Hi All- My son was born at 25 w 3 d with zero warning. I was having back pain and then went to the hospital in the middle of the night. I was already fully dilated with no idea that I was in labor. My son was born 20 minutes later weighing 2 lbs, 2 ozs. He spent 116 days in the NICU and is now a healthy 2.5 year old. I am 22 weeks pregnant with our second boy. I have been seeing a specialist who is monitoring my cervix in case that is the issue. I was on progesterone shots but I had a decline in cervix length so now I am on progesterone suppositories. At my 22 week check-up my cervix length was 2.85 cm. I know they can only do cerclage until week 24 and only if the cervix length goes below 2.5 cm.
I have appointments at 23 weeks and 24 weeks to check cervix length again. I hope it won't drop any lower but if it does I understand what the next steps are. What I'm not sure about is what happens if the cervix stays about the same length. Has anyone been through a similar situation?
