In brief: Sometimes

Pelvic rest usually means no intercourse, douching, wearing tampons, heavy lifting, and in some cases to limit walking.
If you didn't understand what your doctor specifically wants you to do and not do, please contact him or her and ask. These last few weeks in your pregnancy are very important -- get clear so you can keep yourself and your baby safe.
