Yes it us short cervix.. stitches will help you.. go for it.. just make sure to have complete bed rest, no any physical exertions, foot end elevation will help..

It's not short cervix....not indicated unless u had previous losses at this particular period of gestation and if ur asymptomatic better leave alone. The doc should advice what's best for u


Thank you all:)
