Starting having contractions around 10 pm last night starting out right at 3 minutes apart and I waited about an hr before calling my oncall midwife! went up to be checked and they were deffinitly 3 minutes apart with super back labor I was 2cm which was 1cm more than yesturday morning and after 2 hrs of contractions nothing chnged and they sent me home! 16 hrs later i couldnt deal with the pain in my back but the contractions werent any stronger. I again called the midwife and they told me to go back and get checked again.... still only 2cm and not progressing! came home and the contrctions had become irregular so i took a bath which felt amazing and then a nap. Now my contractions are irregular and im trying to convince myself that its ok and he will be here soon but very dissapointing and frusterating
My friend was due on the 22nd she is 4cm 90% effaced and the babies head is a -1.. She is having contractions irregular tho and they still won't keep her in he hospital... It will happen jus hang in there
i am 33 weeks & in labor with contractions 2 minutes apart. i started labor tuesday night at about 7:30pm. at about 9pm i lost my mucus plug then went to L&D at 11pm after confirming with my OB that i am in true labor. they confirmed my contractions are 2 minutes apart but my water hadn't broke & i was not dilated so they sent me home (around 2am). wednesday at noon i saw another doctor in my Ob's practice & he checked me- i was still not dilated. the baby is not in distress so they decided it's best for me to tough out the labor at home. my contractions are STILL 2 minutes apart and i am in SERIOUS pain & the only advice the OB gave me was to "drink plenty of water & rest" (easier said then done). i surely hope i am not in labor for weeks on end. i suggest trying maternity acupressure. i've heard it works wonders. i am actually reading up on it and going to try it myself.
