Hi... Welcome to hcm

First let me clarify about your liquor. Normal values are between 5 and 25. So you have absolutely normal liquor.

About cervix os dilatation,probably you are due for labour any day. Os slowly opens up and when labour pain starts,then os dilates fully,you will deliver. We can never predict when you will go in labour but seems your date is near.

About care now,you should not lift any heavy objects,use too much stairs as it can rupture membranes and sleep healthy. Nothing to worry about.

Take care. All the best
