Hey guys, I'm really struggling with this pregnancy. I have had 2 premature children as early as 10 weeks. They are in year 6 and high school now and doing amazing. This time round I'm at the hospital every week and looks like a cervical stitch is on the cards. I'm already on progesterone which is uncomfortable but fine, but really scared about the op. I have a fibroid thay is painful and growing which is worrying...Also had my 20 week scan which was incomplete because of my bmi which is 42. I feel anxious all the time and that has just kicked me while I'm down. Couldn't even tell the gender. I wonder is anybody else in the same position, I feel embarrassed to talk to anyone face to face. Just wish I could enjoy this pregnancy!!!

Hi tonibee sounds like you are having a tough time of it Flowers You might get more responses from people in the same boat if you re-post on the pregnancy board, it’s in talk> becoming a parent.

Hi @Tonibee88. Congratulations on your pregnancy! I had a cervical stitch and the op is fine, it's very quick and recovery is fine too. I do a fairly physical job so I had 2 weeks off work but some people are back after a few days in a more sedentary job. The epidural/spinal doesn't hurt much so I found that fine too! The stitch really worked for me Grin
