Answer: Hi Dear! when you are not pregnant the lower end of your uterus out the cervix should be 4 to 5 cm long and when you get pregnant it becomes shorter with time and as and when your pregnancy advances your baby grows your uterus grows big it puts a lot of pressure on your cervix when it gets it keeps getting dilated now if it is only 3 inches in the six months of pregnancy then it is definitely a concern and that's why your doctor has asked you for bed rest please make sure that you do not lift any heavyweight do not intercourse with your partner do not walk fast avoid constipation and have easy to digest food because if it gets more dilated then you might have to undergo cervical cerclage to protect the baby till the term.. Hope this helps!
