I had cervical cancer in 2007, and opted for a large amount of my cervix to be cut out, rather than having a hysterectomy. Before that, I had two LEEP procedures, all of which left me with a shortened, weakened cervix. I have to have a cerclage next Tuesday to close my cervix for the remainder of my pregnancy.

I'm scared! Does anyone have first hand experience with this? I know it's done with a spinal block, which also freaks me out, and I'll be awake the whole time. I'm just kind of nervous and would love to hear any tips/advice/suggestions from anyone that's also had a cerclage!
