15 weeks pregnant mother

Question: I am 13 weeks pregnant and my NT scan was done a week ago i.e. at 12 weeks. My cervix length was found to be 2.9 cm.Is it normal or cause of concern?

1 Answers
Answer: The average cervix length is 4 to 5 cm, and it is expected to shorten as you get further along into your pregnancy. One study found that at 24 weeks gestation, the average cervix length is 3.5 cm. When cervical length is less than 2.2 cm, women face a 20 percent probability of preterm delivery. So I would suggest you consult a doctor and keep a track of your Cervix lenght

Question: Im 26 weeks pregnant with 2.9 cm of cervical length, is it a cause of concern??
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 2.9 cm is short and during the course of pregnancy it becomes soft and dilated and keeps dilating with baby growth and pressure hence women with short cervix get cervical stitches to protect the baby. Also now that you know that you hv cervical incompetency so avoid sexual intercourse and lifting Heavy weight. Bed rest is important (condition varies from women to women) Hope this helps!
