I had a little bit of a scare today. When I used the restroom this afternoon, there was blood in the mucus and little tiny clots too. I called my OBs office and they told me to go to L&D to get checked out. The RN examined me and told me that I have a short cervix. What does that mean? I am only 23 weeks, I can't be getting effaced yet can I? It kinda freaked me out. I have to make a follow up appointment tomorrow with my OB to re check everything. Can someone please tell me what it means to have a "short cervix" this early in pregnancy and what should I expect to happen?
