1st time here...need to talk

I am at 21 weeks right now.  Last week we had our 20 week sonogram...the baby looks great, but there was some concern about my cervix.  Apparently it is already thinning.  My doctor ordered me to bascically go from sitting to sitting until Wednesday.  We will then have another sonogram to see if my cervix has opened/thinned any more.  If so, then we have the option of a cerclage (sp?) and/or bed rest.  The problem with a cerclage is that I am on blood thinners due to clotting problems.  The problem with bed rest is bed rest first of all and I am a school teacher who needs those first two six weeks paychecks before taking maternity leave.  I also have been having slight pain in the vaginal region (more like tiny pin pricks or like someone is pinching me).  They don't last long, but are starting to concern me (every little thing is starting to concern me at this point!)  Anyone have some words of advise, comfort....  Just need someone to talk to that might understand.
