Just when I think all is well…

I started having some pain in my cervix today. Not horrible, but enough to scare me. So I decided to call my RE’s office just to be reassured that all is well. Not so much.

The on-call nurse (I called after hours) told me I need to come in tomorrow morning. I told her I was having pain and that I still have the stitch in from my lap/hysteroscopy on June 9. She said “ohhh, that stitch needs to come out. I hope the skin didn’t grow around it.” Now, let me back up a moment. When I went in for my IUI 3 weeks ago, the nurse who put the speculum in said “oh, you have a stitch!” (said in a cheery, not-a-big-deal voice). Okay, so I have a stitch – no biggie. Now, I’m 5 weeks pregnant with, what looks like a potentially viable baby and the stitch has to come out? What the heck kind of timeline is this? The nurse also doesn’t think the pain is from the stitch – she thinks that’s normal pain. Normal pain? In my cervix? At 5 weeks? She said taking out the stitch will NOT cause a m/c, but they are going to do repeat b/w just to make sure I’m still okay (even though I just had it today).

The slight silver lining in this? I may just get my first u/s tomorrow – she said I probably could. But, she said we may not be able to see anything.

As if I wasn’t worried enough…



  1. Try not to worry. I don’t know anything about the stitch, but that should be external and it really shouldn’t have an impact on the pregnancy when it is removed. And pain in the cervix during pregnancy is normal. I would sometimes get these jarring, feels like a knife in my cervix, kind of pains that would stop me dead in my tracks. As my pregnancy progressed, I was sure the baby was jumping/kicking/scratching my cervix. Try not to worry about it and wait and see what happens tomorrow. Pregnancy is scary – it comes with so many worries!
