hi, I'm not really sure which board is the best to post this on but I'm hoping to find someone who has had a similar experience and can give me some advice.
I was diagnosed with CC at the end of last year and had two LLETZ procedurea to remove quite a big chunk of my cervix. We then managed (luckily) to conceive and I'm currently 23 weeks pregnant. They've been monitormug my cervical length but found out yesterday it's shortened from 32mm to 20mm in 6 weeks. They say 15mm would be very high risk. I've now been given a few choices about what to do next: do nothing and just see what happens; one off steroids that might strengthen things (but if they don't I can't have another dose); or a cervical stitch. 24 weeks is the last opportunity to have the stitch so I have to decide by Wednesday at the latest if I want to go down that route. A stitch could make my waters break, or could cause infection. Could also cause problems if I go into labour before the stitch has been removed. I'm going to have another scan on Wednesday but then have to have a definite final decision.
Any ladies been through similar and can give me some advice? Especially anyone who has had a stitch and can give their experiences. I was prepared for this possibility all along but now they've gone through the risks I don't know what to do. Would really appreciate hearing from anyone.
