short cervix

So I went to my anatomy scan on Friday and everything was fine with the baby then the tech comes in and said they contacted my doctor because I have a short cervix..... the doc said just no sex and I should be fine and we will discuss it more when I go in on the 8th. Has anyone else had this issue? Is it something to freak out about? I'm just worried.....

How short is you're cervix??? Don't have sex try to stay in bed for the most part with you're legs up.. and no bending down or lifting anything.. trust me you don't want to mess with that.. it can go from 2 mom to 0 in days if you have incompetent cervix.. and that's what it sounds like to me if you're cervix is short and you're in you're second trimester. If you have any more questions please ask.. x

How do they discover something like that? Jw. In a normal pelvic exam or what?
