Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

talk to your doctor about all of your concerns. only he will be able to answer all your questions, as he knows your particular situation, and medical history. no, it does not mean that you will definitely have your baby early, but you are at a risk for that.
pinkpaisley is right. your dr knows more about you, your body & all your medical info so the dr is the best person to help you with this question. Dont worry about bothering tem with lots of questions, its part of their job to answer any & all of your questions & concerns. Shes also right that having a thin cervix doesnt neccesarily mean this baby will come early it does mean that its more likely & thats why youre on bed rest. cuz physical movement can thin it more. So just try to relaxe & know that you are doing everything you can for this lil bundle of joy. & talk to you dr about any & everything you want or need to. good luck
