I did with my first bed rest for 17 weeks, but the bed rest worked. In my case I was effaced and dilated. With my daughter I didn't go on bed rest until 31 weeks. Take it easy follow the drs advice all the time and hopefully you'll make it to 37 weeks. Some women go around for months with a short cervix. Good luck!

My cervix was at 1.75, 2cm and 50% at 32 weeks.  They did the fetal fibronectin test.  Have they done that with you yet?  I'm almost 37 weeks and still pregnant at 3.5cm and 70% as of last week.  I know mine was at 3 at my 20 week appointment.  I would think they would want to keep a VERY close eye on you for the next few weeks for sure.
