Why? I hope you're ok!

Meant to add my 20 week scan is not until next Thursday and it feels like a lifetime away as well when you just want to know that everything is ok in there with the little baby.

Had my scan all good.. and a GIRL smile))
Cervix was 45mm so its gone up?!
Is that normal ?!

I had mine and all they would say was that there is no sign of funnelling. Still don't know the cervical length and don't see the consultant again until 27 weeks!

Didn't you ask? Is it not on your notes?!
Ring and find out another 7 weeks ll do your head in not knowing xx

No it seems in our area they don't measure it unless you don't have the stitch and go for the wait and see approach instead.

Not all of them can do it apparently and I had a trainee sonographer just to top it all off!

Had baby girl 40 w plus 4 days had to be induced .. after all that..
Not pregnant again 21 weeks plus 5 days and having exactly same pressure needing to push horrid feeling again sad had another cervical scan at 18 weeks was 3.9cm going for another scan next week private to re check.. nhs are rubbish and refused me this time.
When you have this level of pressure you need to know all is ok !!!

Try not to worry too much. I lost my first born at 23 weeks due to a weak cervix, I had 3 D&Cs too. I have a healthy 20 month old, and am 34 weeks pregnant. I have had a stitch placed in both pregnancies so I know things will be okay, but this time I get really strong pressure like I need to push and Bratton hicks.

3.9cm is really good! Mine dropped from 2.4 to 1.2 overnight at 17 weeks I carried her until 37 weeks. With this pregnancy it was 2.4cm at 12 weeks so had a stitch placed at 15 weeks. It's stayed them same. They probably won't be able to measure your cervix properly after 24 weeks. That's when they stop checking smile
