    Default Short cervix - cervical suture

    I am hoping someone may have been through this and can let me know how they have gone..

    Yesterday we went for our Morph scan, everything was perfect with bub but then they checked my cervix and said it was tiny... They sent me straight to the hospital after speaking to my ob, I had the cervical suture yesterday and now just waiting to see if it works..

    Quiet nervous and hoping that it does work.. How long did your bub stay?? Dr is saying it will be unlikely for me to carry full term

    I lost my DS to due a incompetent cervix and didn't get a stitch.

    With dd I had my stitch done at 15w, my stitch was taken out at 36w4d and I was induced at 37w, at my request.

    How short was ur cervix?

    Rest as much as u can, good luck!

    It sounds like ur cervix is funnelling (opening) from the top (near bub)
    If there is only 6mm closed they have done a great job getting a stitch in.
    Have they put u on bed rest?
