Early labor drags on for a 4x mom?

I have been in early labor for 2 days...contractions only hurt more, don't get much closer together. 11-20 min apart. I am in so much pain, they even keep me from sleep, and last night when I finally did fall asleep they woke me up and made me cry...I would call my doc but I don't want to be sent home again...

  • ouch, I thought usually labor went faster the more kids you have. Guess you're the exception to the rule, me too, I only have one though, but I was only in labor for 4 hours with my little one and she's my first. Good Luck, hope you get that baby out soon!

  • How far along are you? if it's too early then you better go in and stop the labor.

  • While is is true that moms with 3 or less children normally have speedier labors , once you become a grand multip momma (4 plus babies) it is really unpredictable ! I've been there , after my 5th child my labors actually had failure to progress while my labors before my 5th child were super fast (less than 3 hours each)
