Answer: Hello dear, normal cervical length is 4 to 5 cm when not pregnant. One study found that at 24 weeks gestation, the average cervical length is 3.5 cm. When cervical length is less than 2.2 cm, women face a 20 percent probability of preterm delivery. Your length is low, try to take more rest, don't heavy lifting and heavy work, avoid sex, avoid jerky ride, any kind of bleeding found, consult your doctor.  Take care....
