15weeks pregnant. OBGYN said cervix length 2.4cm. Maternalfetal expert said it is too early to check cervix length. What if it worsens before next apptmt?
Cervical shortening: The average cervix at 15 weeks is usually 3 cm or more, but what's more important is whether or not there was funneling. When the tech pushes on the uterus and the membranes and cervix appear to flatten out or even bulge through the cervix then you have funneling. If that happens they likely discuss using a pessary or elective cerclage. Prior preterm birth patients do get the length check early ...Read more
My doctor said baby is very near to lower uterine segment. I am 31 weeks pregnant and my cervix length is 3.5cm. What precautions I have to take?
No trampolining: Seriously, there is not anything you can do as usually the baby doesn't "drop" into the pelvis until week 36. To avoid premature labor, minimize extremely strenuous activities and if uterine cramping begins, notify your OB MD immediately. ...Read more

Hi I had a history of PPROM at 22 weeks. MY cervix length is 26mm now with out pregnancy. Is Cervix length 26mm when not pregnant is normal?
22wks pregnant. Shortening cervix frm 3.1 to 2.6 over past wk. On progesterone+bedrest+weekly length check via US. Do I have a chance at fullterm bub?
Yes: It sounds like you are doing all the right things. I assume you have also been advised not to have sex. There is an increased risk of the baby being born early but that is just increased not by any means certain. I have known patients with the same findings to have to be induced at term. Best wishes to you and the baby. Hope this helps. ...Read more

In good hands: I think the risk of something bad happening is low and you are in good hands. Don't exert and rest until this is fixed. The stitching procedure is simple and the rate of complications is less than 2% or so. ...Read more

37 weeks pregnant usg acc to period date 38wk. Baby head mobile cervix length 3.7 cm. Doc says this is reason to go for c sec in 38/39 week. Needed? Wait
Reason for csec?: KhU--what is the reason for the csec? Cervical length is not usually something we do cesareans for--if this is your first baby, you may not "thin out" until the very end. Now, we do not define a term pregnancy until 39 weeks. And post-term or "late" pregnancy is not until 42 weeks. I would advise waiting for now unless there are other indicators that things are wrong with the pregnancy. ...Read more

Soft: During the earlier part of pregnancy the cervix feels like the tip of your nose but softer and more compressible. In labor, the cervix becomes less long - eventually becoming almost flush with the vaginal wall.. Additionally the cervix opens to facilitate the passage of the fetus from the uterus to the vaginal canal. Don't check your own cervix during pregnancy. ...Read more
