My friend has undergone anamoly scan at 18 weeks of pregnancy. Her cervical length at 13 weeks was 3 cm and cervical length at 18 weeks was 2.4 cm. Her doctor assured tht its quite normal and not to worry. She read many articles online about short cervix causing preterm labour. She is now quite worried and wants second opinion. Queries as follows: 1. Doctor has not recommended cervical stitch as its her first pregnancy and she is young. 2.
