What does anyone know about "shortening" of the cervix?

My dr. called me yesterday and said my cervix isn't big enough and I have to go to the hospital this friday to get the wand ultrasound :-/

Supposedly nothing to worry about, but I'm still worrying. .
Anyone have any info?

  • I had what is called an incompetent cervix which means mine is weak and short. You may need a cervical stitch (cerclage) to get to full term. I one with my last two babies.

  • Do they numb you up or knock you out? Could you feel the stitches inside of you? How long was recovery? I'm such a baby when it comes to things I dont know about..
    I passed out on one of the blood tests because she didn't tell me what was going on.
