Are any of you NOT going on bed rest for a short cervix? My Dr. said bed rest would not make a difference or put me at an increased risk for pre term labor. Even though he assures me bed rest wont help, im confused about his "pressure" theory. If standing walking ect does not put extra pressure on your cervix then why does everybody that gets a cerclage go on bed rest? Sometimes I feel like he makes no sense, but when I go to him for clarification I leave or hang up just as confused. Who is NOT doing bed rest for a short cervix or at least been told it wont help?

 With my second pregnancy I had a short cervix, I was placed on modified bedrest.

I was told I had a short cervix with my 3rd son. I was actually put on bedrest at the hospital with him and he still came early at 29 weeks (my oldest was born at 37 weeks and my middle was born at 27 weeks). This pregnancy I was put on progesterone shots to keep my cervix thick. Has your doctor brought that up to you? My OB checks my cervix every two weeks to make sure it still measures thick.

I don't have a short cervix and I've actually never heard of one. What exactly does this mean for the cervix/conceiving/pregnancy?
