hi i'm 35 after my last child 11 years ago, i had to have surgery because of cervical cancer, i had to have surgery again on my cervix a few years ago because of problems with scar tissue. they said i would probably not ever have childen again but here i am 13 weeks pregnant. because of the surgery my cervix is weak and what they call short and they want me to have cervical st_tching done, could this cause a miscarriage and also would it even help? thanks

Kitty, most likely the doc is concerned about a condition called inompetent cervix, which can occur from injury to the cervix. This is a condition when the cervix opens in the second trimester due to the weight of the baby and causes pregnancy loss. The st_tching prevents that from happening, so it sounds like you're in good hands. Congratulations and good luck!
