how do they tell if your cervix is small?

A girl I work with who is nortorious for telling lies told me today that if she has children she will have to have a c-section because her cervix is so small....I have heard of having an incompetent cervix, but not one that is too small, and a friend of mine who has an incompetent cervix did not know about it until after she miscarried a baby because of it......so I am just wondering (not to start anything with the girl because it really does not matter, just out of curiousity) can they really tell if your cervix is too small to give birth before you are actually pregnant? The first thing I asked when the girl said this was "have you ever been pregnant? and she just said no they tell me at my annual pap exam"

    Sounds like she has been misinformed. Or she exaggerates.
