Cerclage detail that I forgot- Teflon tape!
Oh my goodness, my husband just remembered a HUGE detail about my FIRST cerclage (two Shirodkar stitches, NO CERVIX at the time of placement). The doctor also used a Teflon tape, yes, Teflon tape vertically along the inside of my cervix to keep it shut along with the stitches. I have never heard of anyone else having this done and I have no idea if this is common practice or if this is something he felt he needed to do to keep N inside because the situation was so bad at only 10 weeks. Just like he decided to do the second stitch mid surgery. So, hubby gets the credit for remembering this detail, and I'm so sorry I didn't put this in sooner!
