Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
She is having cervical incompetence where the cervix is small and weak and opened causing foetus to be expelled out of the uterus. If the diagnosis was done earlier, stitches could have been done to prevent expulsion. It's not good prognosis. Next time early diagnosis needs to be done by ultrasound is best.

Welcome to HCM.
Os tightning is possible after reduction of bulging of membrane.
If delivered at 5th month than chances of survival of baby is nil.
Otherwise take care and follow your doctor .
Best wishes.
