Hello everyone, I am new here, pregnant with B/G twins and a first time mom. I went in at 17+6 and my OB wrote a 3.3 cm cervical length with a abdominal ultrasound. I went back this week at 20+4. I mentioned to my midwife that I had felt some pressure and tightness low in my stomach and she decided to do a trans vaginal ultrasound to measure my cervix. It is now down to 2.689 cm and my midwife mentioned I have some funneling. She started me on progesterone suppositories, and told me to cut back on activity, no exercise, rest if I can, cut back on sex, etc. But she never explicitly said bed rest. I am still putting myself on a modified bed rest at least until my next appointment with the OB at 21+6. I am, of course, very nervous about pre-term labor. Anyone in a similar situation or had a similar situation, what was your outcome? I want to keep these babies in as long as possible. Thanks so much!


**Update** Went im at 21+6 and cervix was 2.5, they had me come in the next week for a vaginal swab and another measure. Went back at 22+5 and found out my cervix went down to 1.1 cm and they also found an infection. They admitted me and I received steroid shots at 23 weeks for babies lungs and have been taking magnesium in addition to progesterone and antibiotics to combat infection. I’ve been in here a week already and going crazy (I’m 23+5 now). I have no other signs of labor (cramps, contractions, increased discharge or pain) and they say they may keep me another week but won’t tell me when they will remeasure. I’d really rather be at home if I’m just taking some pills than lying in a hospital bed. THoughts?
