I concur...and NEVER feel bad if you aren't actually in labor !! I assume this is your first baby...and without a car, all the more reason for you to be checked out. I was in the exact circumstances, dialation, effacement...and the Resident Doc said "Oh..you won't have this baby for 2 weeks"..HA...I left, was dropped off at home..put on my jammies...and my water broke!! I gave birth to my younger son at 8:00 a.m the following morning...so noone ever knows "exactly" when your baby decides it's time! Congrats! Thanks for sharing in your excitement!
