SO.. my abdominal cerclage is officially scheduled for June 20th!
I don’t quite know how I feel. Yes I’m excited but I’m also nervous because this is the highest level of intervention that we can do for me to carry my child to term. I also think I haven’t processed my feelings about it yet because I’m smack dab in the middle of May and really just trying to navigate through this month.
I am glad that I am going under full anesthesia for it because..*NEW DEVELOPMENT* I now have slight anxiety attacks whenever I have to put on a hospital gown. It isn’t terrible.. but the last few times, I have burst into tears whenever they ask me to change and then I sit there in the gown and I can’t breathe. It’s a lot.
It is an outpatient procedure and while I’ve taken a week off of work, most of the Abbylooper ladies said they were up to working/back to normal within 2-3 days. So we shall see!!
