    What I wouldn't have GIVEN to have reached 39, 40, 41 weeks gestation in my last pregnancy...my son was born still at 22.4 weeks after PROM! Let them talk to me!!!

    Some people just don't have a CLUE!!!

    I am so sorry for your heartbreaking loss. Although I was lucky enough to make it to 32 and 33 weeks, I agree--I would have given anything to make it to term. I think a NICU tour should be mandatory for these people.

    p.s. would you have a cerclage in a future pg.?

    Thanks Shannon!!! It has been a rough 10 months, but I'm making it!! Thank goodness for my 2.5 year old..he's kept me sane!

    RE the Cerclage: My OB said that I didn't have an incompetent cervix so I'm sure she wouldn't do a cerclage! Although she said it was a fluke, I think it was a combination of fibroids (since have been removed) and amniocentisis that I had 6 weeks prior although no one else (medical professionals) agrees. I do know though that I'll not have another early amnio (15 weeks)...I'll do it the next time after 32 weeks and only if there's something seriously wrong suspected.

    Well at least that is good news your OB said it was a fluke--hopefully the next time you will sail through uneventfully! So you didn't have any problems with your pg. with your 2.5 yr. old? Unless something changed in between (i.e. a LEEP or other procedure on your cervix) then yes, it wouldn't be IC. But for peace of mind, I would ask for frequent cervical length measurements starting at 18 weeks until 24 weeks just to be on the safe side. So sorry for your loss, again, and best of luck in the future!

    Shannon...thanks a million for the advice on the cervical checkups!! My pregnancy w/ my 2 year old was uncomplicated, although he was born w/ EA-TEF that went undiagnosed until delivery! No worries w/ that either..after his repair, it's been smooth sailing!

    My OB said that we can start TTC next month, so I'm hoping that it won't be a long process, although, I didn't have any fertility issues prior..I got pregnant both times very quickly!

    You have been a wealth of information..thanks so much again!! When I get pregnant, I'll stop back and let you know how it's going!!!
