Hi Priyanka. There are many pregnant women out there who have cervical incompetence and it is completely manageable. If your doc has put in a stitch it is called circlage to keep the cervix mouth closed. The stitch will be removed few days before EDD or when labour begins whichever is early. Till then you need to take care that you don't strain your abdomen, avoid lifting heavy weights and doing heavy exercises. If you are following any exercise or yoga routine please take permission from your doc and inform your instructor accordingly. Any constipation or cough needs to be tackled asap since they exert strain on the abdomen. Baby's growth is not affected with circlage so please relax.
