They never told me a length..They will just tell you if it's still thick or if it's beginning to thin out

Do they see if your dilated or does it matter?

They should be able to physcially tell if you are dilated, though the thinning part is a lot more important. You might be dilated already if you had another birth or a miscarriage.  I'm 1.5cm open and I'm almost 19 weeks, but it's been that way since the beginning.

Quoting krista16:

Not sure of exact numbers but they will probably tell you if it looks like it is shortening or not. Good luck!

Ive been having to get cervical checks and mine went from 2.9cm to 2.5cm in two weeks and im 33 weeks. The tech just tells you if its normal. Your doc will have to call you with the details and that usualy takes a day. They like to see you at least 3.0cm. I had to have my first steroid shot last night and i have to go for my last one tonight. It helps mature babys lungs just in case they are born early. When they check cervical length, they usually do a transvaginal u/s.
