Preterm labor: Progesterone injections and cerclage are the max of what I would consider in a patient with a history of preterm labor or delivery. Bedrest has not been found to be beneficial. The best thing you can do for yourself and your baby is to Listen to your doctor's advice, try to decrease your stress, eat a well rounded diet, and relax.
