Consult

So today i went for my consult with Dr. S. ( the MFM doctor that i found and was able to fit me in sooner than the other one i had found.) I am very happy that i went. The appointment went very well. I got a bit upset because i left my questions in the car (and i had to park waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay away from the actual building that i had to go into) but it was okay b/c she ended up answering most of the questions anyway.
1. She said that she wouldn't do a cerclage before hand b/c it would increase the risk of infection (seeing as how we don't know when i would actually become pg)
2.She said she believes that i can have a successful pregnancy with a cerclage. (she would do a shidokar stitch instead of a mcdonald. not much difference it's just that one is placed a little higher than the other and it takes just a little longer to do)
3.I would be monitored at least every other week/two weeks. If during any of those checkups my stitch has shortened or it looks as if the stitch has loosened , she would go in and put another stitch/rescue stitch. (She believes in my case that the stitch had loosened enough to allow the baby to come through. of course she can't say for sure b/c she was not my doctor at the time)
4. She also feels that i don't need the TAC. She only does those in cases where there is no cervix to work with. (she strongly feels that i can have a successful pregnancy with a vaginal cerclage, close monitoring and some bedrest.
She has had successful cases of previous m/c /failed cerclage and then a successful pregnancy so that gives me hope.
I'm sure that there are things that i'm leaving out but just can't recall right now but what i have if the most important stuff. I'm just happy that i can breathe a little better knowing that i have some hope. I think i might even dare to dream again.;O)
Thank you Lord for some good news;O)
