Pregnant, have lower back and pelvic pressure, diagnosed with thin cervix. Is it alarming?

Hi, I am 24 weeks pregnant and have been experiencing a lot of lower back pressure and pelvic pressure. I went to the emergency and was told that is wasn t contractions and that is was normal, but I was also told that my cervix was thin, but I shouldn t worry that it could be because I have kids already and that s why it s thin. So my question is should I be worried about my cervix being thin and should I seek medical attention from somewhere else?

Your symptoms are suggestive of a weak cervix. Moreover, in a person with previous vaginal deliveries, descent of the baby within the uterus is earlier as the tone of the muscle is weak. I advice you to seek help from a gynaecologist immediately who should be deciding if you need any care for your cervix like an encirclage to prevent a preterm labor. You should also take lot of bed rest, avoid coitus and lifting weights. Take care.
