The open cervix at five months of pregnancy

In the fifth month of pregnancy, some mothers may have an open cervix, which requires special attention and complete rest.

Your baby measures between 25 and 30 centimeters and weighs an average of 600 grams and starts to press on the cervix, which may open.

You will have to be at complete rest, as there is a risk of premature delivery and infections. Even cleaning and ironing will have to be forgotten!

You will only go out for a check-up by your midwife or obstetrician, who may also decide to admit you to the hospital. But remember that you are doing all this for the sake of your baby.
