Quoting ♥JoJo my luv♥:" I am in labor and delivery and came in becouse of contractions being 5 mins apart like my doctor said ... [snip!] ... they do that my contractions r 3-5 mins apart and I think I have back labor cuz it feels like its stretching and cold and dull"
if you are not progressing than you are not in ''active'' labor and they can and most likely will send you home
it has happened to me b4 w/my 3rd child. I was sent home w/contractions 5min apart......dealt w/the discomfort for about 8hrs at home then returned to hospital when contractions were 3min apart. They kept me then because i had progressed from 2cm, to 5cm.
