We asked and they had a look but they were very non comital til 20 weeks, I see from the other thread that they are taking the wait and see approach, just to reasure you thats what they did with me, I had scans fortnightly from 16 weeks, at 19 weeks (i went to odd numbers due to having an extra scan as i was worried) they saw funneling and i was in surgery next day for the stitch i'm now 24 weeks , they really do act quick if they see anything going on that shouldn't be, just incase that aspect was concerning you.

no worries ask as many questions as you like , It was when i was at 16 weeks that i was worried as i had my scan and it had dropped in lenght from my scan 2 weeks previously by alot so i discussed it with them as they were still happy with the lenght and arrange to have my next scan a week later ( by which point it had lenghtened again only 2 drop again at my 19 week scan) I didn't really have any sensation of my cervix changing to be honest altho i did have braxton hicks the night before my surgery.

I was told by the hospital that if i was worried at any point to ring triage or the delivery suit and they would bring me in to be checked, which i did end up doing at 14 weeks as i started to have contraction like pain ( now know that it was because my blood pressure had shot up unknown cause) they admitted me for the night and checked on my cervix in the morning.


I guess my long winded message is just to say any concerns ring your midwife or hospital explain that you are being monitored for ic and they will most likely bring you in to check you over.

Unfortunatly its the nature of ic that it changes your cervix without you noticing, however they will keep a very close eye on you above 3cm is a good lenght, anything between 2.5cm - 3cm is ok but i would push them for scans closer together because it could mean things are starting to change ask for weekly in that case, 2.5 and lower they will stitch, any sign of funneling irrespective of lenght push for a stitch.

it was:

4.9 i think possibly 4.6 at 14 weeks (not got it written down)
2.9 at 16 weeks
3.6 at 17 weeks
2.6 and funneling at 19 weeks ( stitch placed following day)


remember it can go up and down but make sure they are watching closly if they see any change as it can drop quite quickly
