  • ok hun mine was short also...but they caught mine early enough to repair it. basically the tunnel that is holding closed to keep your baby in is getting shorter which could cause it to open and start early labor. up to about 20 weeks they can put a stitch around it to keep it from opening but since u are farther along you will more than likely be put on strict bedrest to keep any additional pressure off ur cervix. i had my first 5 weeks early and the second was 3 days late. if you arent already on bedrest then u will be shortly. it should help keep u from going into labor so soon. also to ease ur pain my aunt delivered at 21 weeks and her daughter is alive and well at 8 yrs old. also your cervix will be short on all future pregnancies so next time be prepared for the cerclage to close it!
