Hi everyone. I am new to this site but so happy I have found it. I am 21 weeks pregnant today with my second child, another boy! Last week I went to get my routine ultra sound and was excited to find out the gender of my baby. During the scan the tech saw that my cervix was open. She had me stay laying down and brought me to the birthing center on the stretcher. The on call doctor came and did an exam and sure enough I was dialated 1 cm. An hour later I was taken to the OR to have a cervical cerclage placed. The doctor told me he couldn't put the stitch where he wanted because the sack was right at the opening of my cervix, he also told me I had a cyst in my cervix which he ended up popping while he placed the stitch. He is concerned that the stitch will fail because it is right at the opening of my cervix. The baby looks fine and so is my cervix, I wasn't having contractions and they have no idea why I was dialated. I am now on strict bed rest for the rest of my pregnancy and have to give myself lovenox injections every morning. I am so scared I'm going to have a miscarriage or that the baby will be pre mature and not make it. I'm scared to move and any little thing I feel I get so scared. I have been on bed rest a total of 6 days and it is so much harder than I thought it would be. I took a shower today and couldn't believe how weak my legs feel already. Has anyone gone through this and have any advice? Any advice would be so appreciated! I have also had dark, thick, sticky discharge about 3 or 4 times. I also have had vaginal pain, but it does not last long. It's just a sharp pain really quick. Does anyone know if this is normal or has anyone experienced this? Thanks so much in advance. I am just freaking out over here.
