Hi All! March 2008 I was pregnant with my first baby, was really happy and everything going well until week 23 when I went to see my OB and I was told I was going into labour. I had an emergency cervical cerclage and was put on bed rest. All our plans changed in a matter of minutes. We have no family at all in Australia, so it was me and my husband on a difficult journey. We had good friends but they were also busy with full time jobs. My husband had to look after the house leave all meals cooked for me so I didn’t have to do much. With good bed rest my boy was born at 34 weeks and 3 days. After this I though what hope do we have for baby number 2? No family to help us with the first one, I wouldn’t be able to work….so we did it anyway. April 2011 I was pregnant with baby number 2 and although it wasn’t easy ( another cervical cerclage, gallbladder removal at 18 weeks and usinf a walking stick for 2 months) I was lucky to delivered this baby at 38 weeks and 3 days! With a lot of help from God, my wonderful Obstetrician and positive positive thinking. Of course a lot of resting as well whenever was possible.
