On Thursday I will be having my cerclage placement done. A cerclage is a "surgical stitch" That they sew into the cervix to keep it closed. I have to get it done because I have an incompetent cervix. (That is what eventually led me to have to deliver my twins soo very, very early).

It is pretty routine, but I do have to go under general anesthesia. Which of course, is risky to a baby just barely into my second trimester. I have had this surgery before, but I am still very scared!

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers this week, okay? I would really appreciate it! You ladies are the best. Thank you for everything

good luck! i've always wondered about cerclages, do they heal after they remove the stitch? Is there a number of times it is recommended to have them? ie, if you have 12 babies, can you in theory get 12 cerclages? or will the cervix just get torn up after a couple?

They recommend that I have them every time I get pregnant. You can get 12 cerclages in theory, yes. It doesn't tear up the cervix unless your body goes into labor before they take it out and it can rip... ouch...that is rare that that happens though! I went into early labor in my first pregnancy with one in and it started to hurt as there was pressure from the contractions and they were able to remove it before it actually ripped. But I have to take other preventative measures to keep from going into labor with one it-- I will be doing progesterone shots starting next week and bed rest if needed.

As far as healing, it heals pretty quickly, right along with all the other post-labor healing that goes on

Lurking from May DDC:

I'll be keeping you in my T&Ps! A lady from my son's PR had it done during her pregnancy with great success! Her little one is happy, healthy, and stayed put throughout her pregnancy.

Thank you ladies! I will update afterwards, but I may be MIA for a couple days... Anesthesia and I are sort of old enemies.
