In brief: Bed rest is rare

The vast majority of pregnant women never need bed rest.
Your doctor will discuss this with you if any complications develop that require bed rest, but there is really not a way to look ahead and predict.

In brief: Varies

Bed rest can only be determined at the time of need and can not be predicted.
Usually a multiple gestation will require some bed rest, especially if it is a higher order multiple pregnancy. Bed rest will help to reduce high blood pressure and possibly discourage preterm labor. Abnormal uterine shapes will increase premature labor, so bed rest may help.
