Hi ladies! I am 28wks 1day today and feeling pretty good but I need some advice. My cervix has been holding steady at 1.8 and 1.9 for the past 3 or 4 wks which is great. My doc told me last week that they will stop doing transvaginal ultrasounds to check the length and will now switch to bi-weekly non-stress tests to check for contractions. He said at this point it will be a better indicator of whether or not this baby would be coming early. Does anyone else have any experience with this? It would feel good to stop stressing so much about the cervical length but I'm wondering if this is foolish? I'd love to hear about other people's experiences with this. Thanks

They kept doing cervix checks on me until 32 weeks, and then didn't do any checks at all, no biophysical profiles or anything, until I had contractions at 37 weeks. I'm not sure there's a set way to track things, but I think it's a good sign that your cervix has been staying consistent in length!
