I started pregnancy at 4.3cms cervix now at 29 weeks I am 3.1cms is that ok?

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. Cervical lengths can hangs from 1 reading to the next (ex: it could be >3.1cm at next measurement). If you r cramping or bleeding then you need to have a new eval for that, but 3.1cm is very good. ...Read more

Should a womans cervix feel a certain way when checking for early pregnancy signs?

Myths: No. Please review your health class lessons. A fetus is not connected to its mother for about fourteen days after conception. The mother's body has no symptoms from pregnancy until this time when the fetus is big enough to be sharing blood and chemicals with her. True early pregnancy is symptom free. Monitoring the cervix is a complete waste of time and energy! ...Read more

Is it more likely for your cervix to thin and dilate quicker with 4 pregnancy? First 3 all normal and successful

Good question: That's such a good question, and the answer is complicated. In my experience, women who had a lot of deliveries oftentimes the cervix will be the same for weeks on end and then will change suddenly. That is, labor when it comes causes rapid changes to the cervix. I'm like a woman's first delivery where the change is more methodical. ...Read more

My cervix feels different in this pregnancy than my last one is that normal, it feels at a different angle and higher up?

Not unusual: With subsequent pregnancies, it is not unusual to "feel" things differently. This might even be related to fetal position - if the fetus is breech, women often report different sensations in the vaginal area. In the absence of bleeding, pressure or increased discharge, though, I would consider this a normal report. ...Read more
