Answer: A short cervix means the length of your cervix (also called cervical length) is shorter than normal. You may find out that you have a short cervix during an ultrasound that you get as part of your regular prenatal care. Mostly during 24th -31st week. Steriods helps prepare your body for pregnancy. It may help prevent premature birth only if you have a short cervix and you’re pregnant with just one baby. Limiting your activity can also help ease the feeling of vaginal pressure you get when the baby is sitting low against your cervix. Any time you have an increase in pressure, be sure to contact your healthcare provider Being dehydrated can cause your uterus to start contracting. Be sure to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water or other caffeine-free beverages each day. Drink even more when the weather is warm, even if you are indoors. You should be drinking enough that it makes your urine clear. A full bladder can also cause contractions, so don’t wait to get to the bathroom when you feel the urge.
