In brief: 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.
