I feel a bit off about asking this, and I really hope that it doesn't hurt anyone that I ask - I would really love to have another chance at having a baby, but I am so scared... I was wondering how many of you lost the baby later in pregnancy due to cervical incompetence and were later able to carry a baby to term? Did they do anything preventative with that pregnancy?

Thank you Katie (.:Shortcake:.) for my beautiful siggy!!

My loss isn't like yours, but I was host of the High Risk Pregnancy board for almost a year and a lot of women came in in that situation. In every case the baby was born alive, and in only one case was the baby seriously premature. They all made it to the finish line with cervical cerclages and progesterone shots.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

My loss was not like yours (I lost Eli at 26 weeks due to a virus and a chromosomal abnormality) but I know women who lost babies due to cervical incompetence and then went on to have healthy, full term babies. Like Rebecca said, they are put on progesterone and have cervical cerclages.

My situation is different- I broke my water around 17-18 weeks (from what they think) and had Matthew at 23 weeks. My cervix always looked good- long and closed, but they're suggesting I might get a cerclage my next pregnancy in case it had something to do with my cervix and they just didn't catch it. The risk however, is that a cerclage can sometimes weaken the amniotic membrane so I am still researching it. Good luck to you and I hope you get your rainbow baby soon!!

Annalise is hoping to be a big sister on June 28, 2014. Forever missing her big brother, Matthew, stillborn on July 1, 2010.
