They can measure the thickness of your cervix.  IF they monitor that closely (by ultrasound) they should see if there is any concern or if it is thinner than it should be.  Get a second opinion if you are not happy.

I would definately find a high risk OB! I lost a pregnancy at about 18 weeks due to IC so my next pregnancy they did US every 2 weeks. I began dilating at 18 weeks, got a rescue cerclage and now with this pregnancy they did a cerclage at about 16 weeks before I began dilating or thinning. I was considering changing OB's to one that is in my hospital network to reduce my out of pocket expense but he kept hemming and hawing about a preventive cerclage saying they werent sure I had IC so I went back to my high risk OB and got the preventive cerclage. I dont have time for them to take a wait and see approach and the risk of cerclage complications is MUCH slimmer with the preventive cerclage than with a rescue cerclage!
