    They said that the minimum they like the cervix length to be at was 29 and mine was at 26. I'm not sure but I think thats inches or mills I have no clue. But they said my cervix was closed still so thats good. Yeah this weekend I'm just going to be lying around. I may even work half a day on Monday. Just gotta get through today....

    according to my OB anything under 3cm is classed as short, mine is 2.5cm prior to pregnancy....
    id say those measurments are in mm so u would be sitting at 2.6cm, which is still enough to get a stitch in......

    good job on taking it easy all weekend im sure all will be fine

    Well hello ladies, I had the stitch a week ago and I survived. I ended up being knocked out thankfully. Just had my check up today and the stitch is holding well and everything looks good. Fingers crossed it stays that way. I am not allowed to do any exercise and lift heavy things but am allowed to go back to work as a sit down job and be careful. Thanks for everyone who posted on here it helped me ALOT!

    Hi Bonnie,
    Well done on getting thru the cerledge, I had one put in at 13 weeks..6 yrs ago.
    My first loss was at 18 weeks and 2nd one at 22 weeks. My cervix length at 14 weeks was 1.7 cm
    but durng dd's pregnancy it shortened .3 of a mm. I was on bedrest for the entire of my pregnancy and was told under no circumstances no sex..actually no excitement. I got to 37 weeks and dd was perfect. Good luck

    I was wondering....altough you cannot have sex are you allowed to have an orgasm or will that contract your cervix a bit?? Too risky??

    Hi
    Just wanted to say congrats for getting that stitch in with no dramas I get mine in 4 weeks...
    Last time around my ob didnt say anything about orgasms and from memory, I don't think I risked it until close to the end of the pregnancy It won't affect your cervix length but it can affect your uterus so sometimes it isn't recommended if you suffer from an irritable uterus as it can bring on contractions. Worth asking your doc about though!
    Minky - thats amazing that you got through with such a short cervix! Always good to hear stories like that

    I was told no sex, no stimulation and so much that I had a slight bleed at 30 weeks and pretty much my first words said to me was I told you no sex...poor DH looked at me cause he knew he was getting nothing.
