My cervical length was 3.6 at 18 weeks so doc had put a stitch. I was carrying twins and she told that despite bed rest, the chances of cervical length shortening are more. So to avoid any risk we went for the stitch.
Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa
Normally, in the late second and early third trimester the cervical length measures anywhere between 3 cm to 3.5 cm (30-35mm) and decreases progressively as the pregnancy advances, in preparation for labor..cervical length of 2.5-3cms(25–30 mm) before 32 weeks gestation seems to increase the risk of preterm delivery..If ultrasound shows there is short cervix, and less than 24 weeks pregnant, doc may recommend- cervical stitch...
In your case its 3.5cms i.e 35mm so it is no worries, again do one USG btw 20-24weeks thn it ll be cleared..
