Anyone Know Anything About Cervical Length?

I had my "cervical length" ultrasound today. It revealed that my cervix is 3.2cm (32mm) in length. I am concerned about this because I was under the impression that 3.5-4.0 cm is considered normal. The ultrasound tech said it was with the normal range and didn't seem concerned. I hope she's right. I called my doctor and left a message with regard to this and we'll see what she says, hopefully tomorrow.

Scrappy was so much bigger than in previous ultrasounds. That seems like a "duh" thing to say but it was really amazing to see the little guy. The little skeleton is all formed and he was waving and moving all around. It was totally adorable.

Unfortunately, this time he was measuring one day behind but again, the tech said this was within normal limits. So I'll try not to worry. The operative word being "try".

All-in-all a pretty good appointment, albeit I am a little concerned about maybe having a short cervix. Hmmm.

Lastly, I better fess up. I rented a fetal doppler. I thought it might help put my anxiety at ease. I've already used it twice today (plus I had the ultrasound earlier) so I really have to start mustering up some self control. I can see this little luxury becoming a problem. I don't want to fry Scrappy's little brain. But I must admit, it's very cool to hear that beautiful heartbeat on command. I love it. But I am NOT allowed to use it again for at least another week.

Dude, you really need to chill!

You are flying at the moment, forget about measurements and rates and average sizes etc...

You don't want an average baby now do you? bigger, smaller, longer, shorter, faster, slower...it's ALL good.

2.5 or shorter is reason for concern. Your cervical length would be considered reassuring.

u/s techs and ob/gyns are *more* likely to be concerned if there is anything to be concerned about. though, you should call your doctor anytime you're worried. they work for you.
i hope you feel better about it soon.

You worry too much, I am praying for you to find peace in your pregnancy right now. You need to throw Dr. Google and the fetal doppler out of the window and find some faith!!! I know it's so hard to let go, but you'll make yourself sick if you don't find a way.

OK, we need to talk. :o) As much as I want a fetal doppler we both need to have some faith. Ask your doctor anything you like but please don't drive yourself insane. It isn't good for you OR Scrappy. :o)

PROMISE ME at some point in time you will enjoy your pregnancy... :o) YOU DESERVE IT!
