  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    The weight gain during pregnancy is normally 11kgs in 9 months. Whether you should gain less or more depends on your BMI. Cervical Cerclage is done for incompetent cervix and for recurrent mid trimester losses. Ideally you should take rest throughout pregnancy and avoid any trauma and sex if you have this history.
    By rest, It does not mean strict bed rest but avoid exertion unless you have history of bleeding or pain abdomen in this pregnancy. Staying active will help you have a healthy pregnancy.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
