Hey ladies, I just found out im pregnant! Has anyone out there had a successful full term birth (or close to it) after a preemie?
I've been researching this like crazy since my sonwas born at 23 weeks and trying to find anything I could do the next time to try to prevent it again or at least get farther along. They don't know what caused me to go into labor prematurely, they are pretty sure it wasnt Incompetent Cervix (but I was already 8 cm dialated when I got there and so I dont know how they can know for sure that wasnt it).
From what I've researched what Im going into my appt with to prpose to my Dr is:
*Weekly 17p (progesterone) shots from weeks 16-36.
*FFN testing atarting at maybe 21, 22 weeks
*Transvaginal ultrasounds starting pretty early on to monitor my cervical length
*Cerclage (only if absolutely necessary)
Im trying to see if there is anything else out there that would be helpful
