In brief: If the Pap is not

Normal, you would be re-checked more, not less frequently.
Your obstetrician will examine you and decide how healthy your cervix looks...It has to work quite well for normal delivery, but treatment of more than suspicious pap finding may carry risks to bringing the emryo/fetus to term. Time to solve the riddle for your sake and your developing child.
