Answer: Ideal cervical length should be 3.5 CM It keeps changing with the growth of baby Please take rest avoid excessive bending avoid lifting heavy objects continue taking your medicines So you need to be monitored frequently for the length of the cervix that is uterus opening. If there is progressive shortening you may require a cervical stitch to close the mouth of the uterus and it will be removed at 37weeks of pregnancy. If the cervical length remain same, then no worries.and if you notice abdominal cramps please consult your doctor immediately

Question: I have cervix 2.8cm length,doc advised to stitch it. Will there be any problem for a normal delivery?
Answer: Hi! The length of your lower uterus level is the cervical length which is connected to your vagina. Usually a normal cervical length is 4-5 cm long when not pregnant and its closed and rigid but during the course of pregnancy it becomes soft and dilated hence women with short cervix get cervical stitches to protect the baby, the stitches are removed only before few days of the delivery and you may get to give birth naturally. Hope this helps!
