Mine was at 0.7 cm with my daughter at 26 weeks and contracting every 2 minutes in labor. I managed to keep her in until 35 1/2 weeks. Bed rest and meds do wonders. Definitely listen to your body and take breaks whenever you feel necessary. Just because you haven't been put on bed rest at this point doesn't mean you shouldn't be careful. Try to not lift your toddler too much (or at all). And no stooping/squatting. Obviously I'm not your doc, but those are some big things that cause more contractions than you want.
Yeah, it's definitely not bad and I feel much better after having done some reading, which all said that it's pretty normal (on the low side of normal, but still normal). I plan to take it as easy as possible with a busy 19 month old, and DH is really helpful. He wouldn't even let me go on a short walk with DD last night, so he's got my best interest in mind.

I hope yours stays long and you can make it to full-term, too!

Wow Shelley, I'm sorry to hear you didn't get good news at the doc. And here I was telling you "hmmm yeah probably' the other day when you said you were having pains and thought maybe they were gas pains. How supportive am I?

Don't feel bad, I thought it was just gas too, but when it didn't go away and I wasn't farting anymore, I figured maybe not.

Hope that everything settles down for you & that you don't have to go on bed rest!
I contracted right through my last pregnancy, but thankfully it caused no cervical change.
