Answer: Hi dear,
Cervical length is the length of the lower end of uterus.in non pregnant women it is 4-5 cm.ince you are at 27 week,average length of the cervix is around 3.5cm.anything below,2.2 cm could increase your chance of preterm labor.initial symptoms of shorter cervical length,could be:
1- vaginal discharge which is often pink or tan
2- increased pelvic pressure
3-watery white discharge
6- premenstrual like cramps
Though the above symptoms could also be due hormonal changes,but it's better to check with your doctor.it usually decreases only at the final stages to induce labor.
Cervical insufficiency,is the reason for such early dialation of cervix and shortening the length.

Answer: cervix is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina which is normally closed, rigid and at least 3 centimeters long. During pregnancy, your cervix will gradually soften. The length of the cervix is expected to shorten as a pregnancy progresses. The external os is the end of the cervix that opens into the vagina. So normal to be closed.
