I am 29wks 6 days. At 28 weeks, I had a vaginal ultrasound and it showed my cervix is shortening at 2.3 cm. My OB did put me on work restrictions. I work 4 days a week about 33hrs total as a dental hygienist. Not a bad job, hard on back and a lot of up and down, and keeping to a demanding schedule of 8-12 patients a day. I have to have a 2hr lunch in middle of my day. At 29wks. I was having a lot of back, side and abdominal pain. It was tough to conceintrate on job and I was miserable. Called my OB, and the midwife requested I come in. She checked me and I was 1cm dialated. I did have negative fFN test that day and negative urine culture. She put me on bedres for the weekend till today when I could see my OB. She also had me put on Celestron (steriod for baby's lungs). My OB sees nothing wrong and said to go back to work as normal. He basically said to suck it up I was just having regular preg. pains.Answer Question

Ummm, I would seek another opnion. Not to scare you but I want to share what happened to me. Much like you I went in for a routine US and they did a transvaginal and discovered my cervix was short and I too was dialated 1 cmm. At the time I was 19 weeks along, they performed a cerlauge and the way it was explained to me it was a very neccessary procedure. I was then put on full bed rest for 4 weeks and partial bed rest the past 2 weeks. Please seek another opioion and best of luck to you and the baby.
