    Default Cervix length?

    Hi everyone, I can't stop worrying about my cervix length.
    I was told by my doctor that there was nothing reported on the ultrasound, and the midwife said its not routinely checked.
    On the scan I had at 11w2d my cervix measured 2.3cm and 3.18cm. I've had a friend who lost at 23 weeks because this was undiagnosed.
    I'm considered obese too and I've heard that my weight doesn't help the matter.
    I don't know what to do!

    They measure your cx length at your morph scan so at 18-20wks. Then if it's less than 2cm they might suggest a stitch or something else.

    Have you had any bleeding?

    If you have the money, you can book to get a private US done specifically to check cervical length at any time, with just a referral from your GP.
    Could be worth it to put your mind at ease?
    Mine was short at the NT scan, so was brought back to the hospital at 15 weeks to measure again. It was borderline then but totally stressing me out so I had an extra private scan at 17 weeks (and no further shortening had happened by then thankfully!).
    How far along are you now?
    The 2.3 and 3.18 cm - are those both for the length and not diameter or anything? 2.3 would be risky but >3cm shouldn't be cause for alarm.

    Thank you for your reply. I didn't know that's when it's usually checked. No one has told me that. I was concerned because it was measured at 11w2d.
    No bleeding here, and bubs is a little acrobat :-)

    I had my NT done after this and the sonographer wouldn't or couldn't check it even though I asked.

    On my scan it just says DIST 3.18cm and DIST 2.3cm

    are these private scans just done where the rest were done?

    Are you sure that's cervix length or is that the distance of the placenta from the cervix they have measured?

    I've got no idea and no one else seems to know either. I will try post some pictures soon. Not sure if that'll help?

    Cervix length changes over the pregnancy. That's why unless it's noticeably short at your dating scan they won't measure it till morph scan.

    The same way no one worries about placental position till after morph scan.
