I know the feeling. You are lucky the did not keep you in the hospital. When i was pregnant with my twins i went into preterm labor aroound 20 weeks and was dialated to 1 cm. Did they give you meds to take at home or just restricted bedrest. Anyway its very important that you follow this. Its okay to get up and go to the bathroom, unless your doctor has said otherwise. And make something to eat for yourself take a shower (i usually only did this when someone was home and i would sit down while i did this) unless your doctor has given you other instructions. No cleaning or major cooking. No driving or going to the store. Also its a good idea (if your doctor has not already told you) to check for contractions you can do this by laying down and placing a hand on you belly and for an hour check to see if you are having any contractions if you do write them down and if you have more than four in an hour call your doctor.
