So I had my double McDonald cerclage last night. They put a stitch in the top of the cervix and one in the bottom. My doctor is world reknowned, from the middle-east somewhere. Very nice man.

Anyhoo, I got to the hospital and I really wasn't nervous at all. I knew I had to just trust in God, and my wonderful TEAM of doctors, and my gut instinct. The weighed me I still haven't lost all the weight from the first pg, so the LARGE number was slightly upsetting but not surprising. IV was started. They tried to find baby with the doppler but all they could hear is the placenta (which is basically the same as hearing MY h/b). So they got out the u/s machine. Unfortunately they had taken my glasses from me since I was in pre-op and I couldn't see a friggin thing!! The nurse was like "Oh look - it's flying all over the place! See?" I said "nope, can't see anything." She was gonna print a picture...... AND THE MACHINE WAS OUT OF FRIGGIN' PAPER!!!! Oh well. h/b was in the 150's, everything looked good (so they tell me), so I proceeded to surgery.

I had a spinal, which like last time was no big deal. I also had some sedation, which was nice. The surgery was literally only 10 minutes. I was out of the hospital about 2 hrs later.

Once the spinal wore off, I started to cramp really badly. This is normal, considering my cervix was just pierced twice. They wrote me a scrip for Percocet but said it prolly wouldn't be necessary. I got home and wished we had filled it. I fell asleep and woke up in excruciating pain. Couldnt remember if it was ibuprofen or acetominophn that we prego's can take. It was awful the pain. I was also nauseated BIG TIME. I just shifting arount, trying to be comfortable and NOT puke. I called my folks first thing and they told me which one. Now I'm fine. The doc said I can resume all prior activity (except for SEX) by saturday!

I feel like my main obstacle has been dealt with. Hopefully the rest of the pregnancy continues without incident.

I was wondering about you this morning. I am sorry you were in so much pain, but happy that things went well and the cerclage is in place. Here's hoping for an uneventful remaining pregnancy!

Sorry you had to go through that but I am sure having that in place is more re-assuring. So glad your little peanut was healthy and that it went as good as it could...

Hope the rest of your pregnancy is un-eventful

Oh, it's too bad you didn't get to see it, but it's still wonderful to hear that all is going well, right?!

Brave woman...I know that it's completely worth it, but the thought of a cerclage makes me queasy...and every time I think about it, I actually have shooting pains. Eek!

Congrats on getting it done early and here's to smooth sailing from here on out!

I hope you are feeling better. I am sure your little baby is snug and happy, and didn't even know what his/or her mommy just went through.
