I'm high risk. I have a short cervix. My last cervical check was about ten days ago and my cervix measured a 1.4. It was the same as two weeks prior to then so the Dr has placed me on more of a moderate breeder he let's me get up and do things just no working. Well I'm 34 weeks now and my Dr is very happy I've made it this far. I don't have a stitch either, anybody go to full term with having a short cervix?

I had a short cervix thru all my pregnancies. W/ my oldest my cervix started shortening at 20 weeks and I went to 42 weeks. My younger two were preterm but not because of my cervix but because of preeclampsia

I went term. 37 weeks. A short cervix isn't all that dangerous, it's a shoretning cervix. Change is the bad thing. I started at 3.5 but by 29 weeks was at 1.7. I did 10 weeks of bedrest and had progesterone shots, but little guy stayed in there!

Idk if I did or not but I know with all three of my kids I was 3cms and 100% by 34 weeks. And I went full term, term and overdue (in that order)

Yeah my cervix was a 3.7 and went to a 1.4 so i guess that was the big concern. Plus my previous pregnancy I delievered at 29 weeks.

lol, you sound like me! My previous pregnancy I delivered at 27 weeks. Are you on progesterone shots? I think those did the most for me! But I carried my 2nd to 37 weeks so it's for sure possible. No cerclage or anything.
