Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Cervical length ( measured in cm from the usg image which is defined as the distance between internal cervical os and external cervical os) and anterior uterocervical angle ( the angle between the anterior border of uterus and cervical canal) will be visualized by transvaginal ultrasound and the printout of the screen will be used to measure the cervical length by a tape measure and uterocervical angle will be measured by a protractor 5 minute observation immediately prior to induction of labor, ultrasound performed upon admission to ward untill induction of labor.
