I was 22wks pregnant wen i started bleeding and my midwife told me it was normal,but i didnt so i took myself off to hospital where i was told i was already 8cm dilated,they tried to put stitch in but it dint work and my back waters went,i was took back onto labour ward where i was told i wood have her in the nxt 72hrs.72hrs passed and she was still holding on so they put me on ward on complete bed rest then had her at 24weeks.They always put it down to a very bad water infection that caused her to come early. Then i fell pregnant with my son 6yrs later and i was given cervical scans every 2weeks and they were all normal even at 22wks which i thought yippee ive done it but then at my 24wk scan they noticed my cervial length had gone from 30mm to 15mm with funneling so was booked straight in for a stitch the nxt day and it worked and i went on to have my son at 35wks weighing a massive 6lb 5oz.So i have now been diagonsed with incompetent cervixs and will have to be stitch with any other pregnancy!!!!!!!

my sister was born at 24 weeks too, weighing 1lb 3oz. my mum had preeclampsia but as she has lupus there were further complications. it was very touch and go for both her and my sister. unfortunately she had 2 brain hemorrhages and as a result has cerebral palsy. but she is now 7 years old, almost eight, walking with help, getting better at talking by the day and the happiest little girl around. id like to share some pics but not sure how![/img]
