Q:

Guys on my 5th week TVS, my cervix was 2.7cms IN length. My doc didn't consider this a point to worry or discuss about. Now that I am reading stuff on Google, I am worried if my already short cervix will cause problems later.; Does the cervix shorten as I am advancing into the pregnancy? Please tell me Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hey let’s wait for Dr Shilpitha to advise

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hi,,,
What was the cervicle length during NT scan and Anamoly scan??

Palisha Sawlani

Dear Satarupa..best is to avoid using google alot unless really required. When i was pregnant i didnt google anything coz that only would increase my worry. As long as your gyneac doesnt warn u or inform u about anything abnormal all is fine...trust in her and all will be fine. Lots of love...dont stress

I am due for the anomaly this week post Thursday. NT wasn't advised. Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Satarupa B Kaur

Thx Palisha Sawlani I will try but sometimes I get worried just reading up.

Priyanka Maheshwari@Momzjourne

I had a short cervix.. n had to get cerclage done.. it is definitely an issue.. but still trust ur gynae

Satarupa B Kaur

Will the 2.7 will have shortened further by now? @Priyanka Maheshwari@Momzjourne

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Okay,,,
By now it might have the same length or may be increased too.. because if the length decreases more then there was the chances of miscarriage.. so, dont panic just wait for the anamoly..

Satarupa B Kaur

Okay Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa I guess I'll have to hope for the best.; If it increases by how much is normal?; decrease nhn Hua hoga as you say but what's next in store if it's same length ? These won't affect my baby na?

Afrose

Hi Satarupa, my cervical length was 3.5 in my NT scan n it was gradualy decreasing,by 17th week it was 3.2,my doc imediatly put d stitch n ws put on strict bed rest till 28 weeks..after bed rest n progestron injctions my cervical length increased to 4.4.i bliv with 2.7 ,u shud b needing a cerclage.y dnt u tak a 2nd opinion.

Satarupa B Kaur

Yes Afrose Begum I'll talk to the doc. I haven't had the anomaly yet. Also, the length mustn't have decreased na till now? Coz I have no unusual symptoms spotting nothing.

Afrose

Generaly as d pregnancy progresses cervical length decreases,this is wat my doc hd tld me coz weight of d baby puts presure on d cervix.til u gt ur scan done plzz rest as much as u can keeping ur feet elevated n avoid standing for long hours.

Satarupa B Kaur

Till now if I had no issues, the baby is safe right?? I will take rest as you say, but for sure the baby is fine right?; Afrose Begum

Afrose

Baby will be fine but if the length has decreased drasticaly ,u will not have d option of cerclage also.so y wait till thursday,u cn go fr anamoly scan today or tommorow coz even a day maters.

Satarupa B Kaur

Okay sure Afrose Begum I will

Ajita Sengar

Satarupa B Kaur

Okay.; My doc says not to worry about size yet.; Only to avoid heavy work. Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa
Let's see what my anomaly reveals, and then will check back.
