was wondering how long the early phase of labor can last. I ended up in the hospital last night with bloody show and contractions that were about 10 minutes apart for around 2 hours. My cervix didnt change so they ended up sending me home with an ambien(sleeping pill) to sleep through the contractions. They told me that I was more than likely in the early stage of labor and to come back when the contractions were 5 minutes apart. They have slowed down today but are still definately strong and still definately there but not quite as close together.
Anyway, I was wondering...if I am ACTUALLY in early labor how long can this last before the really intense stuff happens? I am trying to keep this baby in till I am at least 36 weeks (1 1/2 weeks from now) but the docs wont stop it because I have had 2 rounds of steroid shots. Anyway...any advice, personal stories?
