Yes: A cervical length of 2.5cm or longer is strongly reassuring against a preterm delivery. It's good news. The decrease from 4.3 to 3.1 cm isn't necessarily worrisome.

Good question: That's such a good question, and the answer is complicated.

The changes are not distinct enough to independently confirm the pregnancy. ...Read more

If you are less than 37 weeks along, then your OB should take appropriate actions to forestall premature labor. ...Read more
