Incompetent cervix

Hi, I m 28 yrs pregnant for 1st time. I m 24 wk 2 days. Had two earlier miscarriages in my early pregnancy. One was at 7 wks n 2nd was blated ovum. Now with this one my doc says that I have a short n soft cervix n should go for stitches... I got my scan done later it shows internal OS closed n a length of 3.5. According to scan its all fine. Now I m confused.kindly suggest me wat to do. I m still in complete bed rest since wk 22.

HI!
IF you were my patient, or my sister, I would want a second opinion.  If your cervix is truly 3.5 cm, it is completely normal and healthy.  Doing a cerclage stitch at 24+ weeks is EXTREMELY risky so GET lots of other opinions before proceeding.  If he is a good doctor, he won't mind.
Good luck!
