I was in labor and delivery about 3 days ago. While i was there i wasn't dilated but i was 50 % effaced . They made me walk and about 4 minutes later i was 1 cm and 90 % effaced. They admitted me , but i didn't make much progress overnight i only went up to 2 cm my contractions were all every 5 minutes the whole time i was there.. They sent me home :'( i am 39 weeks and 3 days pregnant with my first a girl. Ever since they sent me home i walked did squats and had sex, nipple stimulation. I think it's working my contractions are about every 4 minutes now, and i feel extremely uncomfortable to the point where i can't walk and i am crying. I want to go in but i don't want to get sent home again and i don't want to seem annoying.. What should i do?
Sorry this is so long.
If they are staying consistent and getting more painful then head in. If you are planning a natural birth with no pain meds you are probably safe to wait it out a bit. Trust your gut some women take forever with their first and some go really fast once things start going.
