The cervical stitch is universally removed at 37 completed weeks or earlier if the patient goes in labor. The patient described was a rare incidence where the cervical stitch in the first pregnancy was forgotten and it was diagnosed in the second pregnancy. Since the patient did have a short cervical length in second pregnancy, the stitch was left in situ and was removed at term. A rare case is presented here where the cervical stitch in the first pregnancy benefited the second pregnancy.
