Already 1cm Dilated! Help!

Hi! I'm currently 33 weeks and 4 days along. I went to my appointment Thursday and was told that I'm already 1cm at the back of my cervix. My Dr said that it's still firm and closed shut in the center and front but it's still too early for me to be dilated. Should I be worried (I am already) and what can I do to avoid dilating anymore until I'm in the safe zone at 37 weeks? Please help!?

I asked me doctor that question when I was checked and she sated no there is nothing to worry about pregnant women can be dilated and stay dilated for weeks till the baby is born. So I think it's okay I was dilated at 1cm and I was effaced at 30% when I asked her.

I wouldn't worry to much about it you can stay 1cm dialated for weeks an even til birth. Try not to stress it's normal

I've never heard of that happening maybe your Dr is just being overly cautious which is not a bad thing you know your being well taken care of
