Cerclage Removed.... Tammy Brunner Due November 9 (girl); 2 kids; Port Perry, Ontario 48 posts
14th Oct '12

I had my cerclage removed on Thursday and so far so good (I was concerned about instant labour). I am now 36 weeks and baby girl is growing healthy - in fact she is quite big - prolly due to the steroid shot at 25 weeks. She was estimated at 7.3 pounds in my final U/S from my specialist office so now i get to return to my local OBGYN - what a relief no more travelling 4 hours weekly for appointments - although it was well worth it.
So now, it does feel like things are slowly starting to move along (not that I am in a hurry just trying to pay attention to little things as I have a history of "silent labours"). Just little things - the urge to pee everytime i stand up, the feel of pressure right at the exit, increased discharge and occasional tightening of the belly. With the tightening of the belly I notice a huge difference in my breathing. It's almost like it becomes more clear or i'm getting more air but i also feel my heart rate increase - anyone else experiance this?

The peeing, yes... all the time. The pressure not so much, only during certain times. The breathing issues, I have that too with every braxton hicks contractions. Or if she's putting too much pressure on my diaphragm. lol
