Q:

Hi,

I'm 30 weeks and 5 days pregnant. Had my IG scan yesterday and it showed that cervix is dilating and is between 7 -9 mm. Not diagnosed with gestational diabetes till now. Even fetal weight is estimated to be of 1.8 to 2.0 kgs.

So what are the tips and suggestions to avoid preterm labour and to stop dilating the cervix more.



Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Did your doctor prescribe any medicines? Staying in bed rest, avoiding travelling and refraining from intercourse are basic tips. But your gynaecologist will be the right person to guide you more on this.

Truly Speaking at this point there are no tips to avoid preterm delivery only thing is you can avoid all sort of activities and be at bed rest avoid straining yourself like climbing stairs long standing walking sitting intercourse
