I'm in my early twenties, I do not smoke, I exercise regularly, eat healthy and have a normal bmi..should I be very concerned.

I am 34 years old and 10 weeks pregnant. I have an incompetent cervix (required cerclage to carry my son to term), a retroverted uterus and hr Negative Blood Factor. I had an abortion in 2001 and the doctor strongly recommended that I do not have an abortion again. I would like to continue my pregnancy but my boyfriend has some doubts. Considering these factors, would a doctor recommend that is safe to perform an abortion?

Hi there I am 17 weeks tomorrow and have had a cervical cerlage inserted at 15 weeks and everything seems perfect and fine . as I have been in formed that my past 4 pregnancy losses may be due to a Incompetent Cervix ? My past pregnancy losses were 17 weeks in 2007 , 22 weeks 2009 , 21 weeks 2010 and 7 weeks early Feb in 2011 . Now im afraid of using Utrogestan as I have read that it can contribute to cancer or liver problems ? UGGH ! I am filled with fear as I am trying to stay healthy for baby to raise and not fear I may do harm to myself during the process ?
