Answer: hi dear! yes dear you need bed rest and your length will be under watch dear as if it reduces further you might need a cervical cerclage(stitch) which will prevent your cervix from opening early in the pregnancy dear.and these stitches will be removed on the 37th week of the pregnancy. so right now have bed rest dear and you might need some scan also to check on the length again. take care dear.

Question: My cervix length is 2.9 cm. But doctor advised me its no need to worry. Is it risky?
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....
