    I am 18 weeks pregnant, and I have been having some vaginal bleeding and contractions. I am scheduled for an ultrasound check next week. My doctor told me that in the meantime, I should decrease my activities at home. He said something about “pelvic rest,” which I thought meant no sex, but now I am not sure. I am too embarrassed to call and ask him what it means. Can you help?
