I had pre-e with my first and preterm labor. My pre-e was pretty bad but nothing like my aunt, she went into cardiac arrest from hers and ended up in a coma for 3 months.
My second I had preterm labor starting at around 30 weeks, full blown at 34 although they stopped it. Both pregnancies I delivered at 37 weeks exactly.
This time I have a even more sensitive cervix than last time ( I was on bedrest with both girls for months, in the hospital with #2 from bleeding).
I am 10 weeks and I have been bleeding daily since 5 weeks. I am on modified bedrest for now, and pelvic rest since 5 weeks. I will be put on full on bedrest by about 20 weeks my doctor said if things do not change. I am mostly concerned because I am a photographer and I have a wedding this weekend. 6 hours of work I can't get out of it but I did get a second shooter thank goodness. I told my doctor and he okay'd it just said to sit as often as possible. Prayers that Saturday goes well please!
It sounds like you have a long road ahead of you! I hope that you are able to carry to term. Prayers that the wedding goes off well for you!

I was sent to labor and delivery a few weeks in a row.

I made it to 37 weeks and had a smooth scheduled repeat c- section (stalled labor with my first). Everything has been great since. I know you all can make it and I hope for nothing but positive outcomes for all of you!!!
My son's head is already measuring almost a week ahead. I am thankful he can't come out of me the old fashion way! Glad everything went well for you!

I am sorry you are having to deal with an IC. However I have only seen good things with Cerclage once it is placed. I have even known some women who got it done prior to conception. I hope all goes well with you! Many prayers for Thursday. You are exactly 3 weeks behind me!
