Post subject: HAVING A STITCH PUT IN TO HOLD BABY IN
I HAVE HAD 4 NORMAL HEALTHY BABIES THEN IN 2001 MY WATERS BROKE AT 25 WEEKS, I HAD AN EMERGANCY C-SECTION AT 27 WEEKS WITH SOME PROBLEMS WITH MYSELF AND BABY, SHE IS A HEALTHY 6 YEAR OLD NOW, THEN IN 2004 PREGNANT WITH MY 6TH CHILD MY WATERS WENT AT 23 WEEKS, AND I GAVE BIRTH A FEW DAYS LATER DUE TO INFECTION AND LOST MY DAUGHTER, NOW IM PREGNANT AGAIN AND HAVE BEEN TOLD THEY WILL PROBERLY PUT A SUTRE STITCH IN TO HOLD THE BABY IN. HAS ANYONE ANY IDEA WHAT THIS ENVOLVES? IS THERE ANY DANGER OF LOSING THE BABY? ANY ANSWERS WOULD GRATEFULLY RECIEVED.

My friend had her first baby at 25 weeks, and during her second pregnancy she was experiencing all sorts of problems and was quite ill. They suggested putting in a stitch but she declined until a few weeks later when it seemed the baby was trying to come!
She had it put in around 19 weeks I think and still had a few problems but nothing serious and was monitored very closely. At 37 weeks they decided to remove the stitch as there was a chance her hind waters had broke and then induced her the next day, she had a healthy 6lb 8oz boy at 37 weeks.
I'd suggest you speak to you midwife and consultant about your concerns, I am sure they will be able to give you some advice.
