    Default Ultrasound Question - Is cervix measurement standard?

    So I had 19 week Ultrasound today, after not giving it much thought in the lead-up, I had something close to a panic attack as I was laying on the table today bracing myself for the worst! I was assured by the end of it that it all looks good.

    So then I went straight to the shops for the first time and went crazy in celebration.

    But then on the way home I received a phone call from the U/S place saying they are doing the report and realised they have forgotten to check cervix measurement and could I come in Monday so they can quickly do it.

    Husband says it is exactly what they say it is. How lovely it must be to be rational, the polar opposite to the constantly worried and paranoid person I become in pregnancy, who says they've seen something that warrants this measurement to be checked?

    Does anybody know if it is standard to check it at the 20 week scan?

    I think your husband is right. If there was any concern they wouldn't make you wait the whole weekend.

    I'm pretty sure it's standard. I know it was part of my 20 week scan.

    It is definitely standard in the 20 week scan. Don't stress yourself.

    I got called back to mine twice, once because they didn't record the heartbeat and the other time they thought my daughters foot was twisted.

    Definitely standard, they need to make sure your cervix isn't opening/changing prematurely.

    Good to know! I have my 20w scan in a couple weeks so will be sure to prompt if they don't mention it, but they have measured it at both my 8w and 12w scans

    Yes it is now standard. My OB says they are now picking up shortened cervix at the 20 week scan & can often prevent premature labour by using progesterone pessaries.
