I dont post here often but this is a great article and thanks for posting! I have a short cervix among what seems like 400 other cervical problems and I wish they screened everyone for this at the 20wk scan, could help a lot of moms. Thanks!

I totally thought about this article when I requested my CL check! I'm confused though... Do they check the cervix or notice it's short on the normal anatomy scans or do they specifically do cervical length checks on most women via transvaginal? I know, my doc sucks, but I just find it strange other women get them who aren't at risk and mine wasn't going to do them and I should be at risk....

I got cl checks w/ my last pg because of PTL previously. cl checks *should* be done transvag. It's more accurate. I did have some done w/ abdominal u/s, but I didn't trust them.
