24 weeks and 3cm dilated

Ok so I am 24 weeks and a few days prego and went to the hospital the other day with contractions.  The doctor checked me and said I was 3cm dilated.  They kept me over night to make sure the contractions stopped then sent me home with "light" activity.  Basically she said just to get up and pee then go sit back down. 

Has anyone been 3 cm or more for awhile before they went into labor?  I am so worried that my little girl is going to come to early to survive.  Oh and I know I should have asked the doctor but is sex ok?

You need to talk more to your doc about everything. And no, NO SEX! Basically, you are on bedrest at home.

i can't believe they didn't put you on complete bedrest..no you shouldn't have sex.  You need to be extremely careful with what you do.

Are you sure you are 3cm dilated? I can't believe your doctor is taking that so lightly.

I would say NO to sex and keep your butt in bed until you're full term. Bed rest and lots of fluids.

Definately no sex. The prostaglandin in the sperm may help things along.

 Sorry no sex for you.  The doc put me on modified bed rest (get up to go to college for an hour, and go home and lay back down). I was also on pelvic rest and boy did THAT suck.  Just so you feel better I know a girl on here who had her daughter at 25 wks last april, and right now she is doing just fine at home with her parents.  Oh, at 32 wks i was dialated 2cm until i delivered at 39 wks... just make sure you follow doctor's orders

Are you thinned out or effaced at all? That is the only reason I can think of that the doc wouldn't be overly stressed, but 3 cm dilated, you need to be careful. Go back if you start back up with contractions.
