I was diagnosed with a short cervix the same date i went in to find out my baby's sex. i think the docs shouldve checked this out way before! at 19 weeks i gave birth to my little girl which didn't survive. i'm still devastated since this was my first little girl after being married for almost 10 yrs. i pray every night for everyone going through this, hipefully god has a plan for us.

Hi there -- i was diagnosed with a short cervix at 19 weeks as well with my first pregnancy and i had no idea what that meant when i was first alerted. my pregnancy was very difficult. i was in and out of the hospital, actually lived there from my 6th to 7th month but in the end i made it to 37wks 3 days and i have a beautiful daughter!! i was on bed rest from 19 wks till 34, my bed was raised in the front on top of blocks to slope downwards towards my head so the gravity would be kept off of my cervix (talk about head rushes!) and i couldn't even take a shower every day just to keep off of my feet. i had steroid shots and i got a progesterone shot every week in my butt to help maintain my's really hard and i honestly truly feel for women diagnosed with this terrible condition cause it makes you a complete basket case every day. i'm scared to get pregnant again but my doctor already told me that next time i will be getting a cerclage at 13 weeks. just think positive, and remember you're doing all this for the best gift you're going to's all worth it and then some!!! :)

I'm 20weeks and the doctor said my cervix is short and open 1.3cm she told me i have two options, is to stay pregnant and she'll give me some medication for contractions or terminate the pregnancy, i'm going to go through it and stay pregnant... hope god be with me to give birth to my baby boy.

I am 18 weeks, our second child, expecting a girl, just found out my cervix is shortened 2.5 cm. had my 10 hour work days as a physical therapist shortened to 5 hours a day, and instructed to take it easy at home. no bleeding, contractions...and carried my first son to 39 weeks with no complications. still a bit worried, am being rechecked in 12 days.
