My first stitch came out three weeks before dd1 was born. With dd2, 3 and 4 they came out during the c-section.
With dd3 (emcs), the surgeon panicked as she couldn't find the stitch and was really concerned. Spoke to my consultant post-birth who said it was fine, the stitches dissolved.
So, when the nurse today saw them today, t'was a bit of a shock. Just not sure I'm all that happy with something there that was not meant to be there permanently, iyswim.... I feel like at every smear I will be explaining the funny cervical stitch story!
