So..I'm about 37-38 weeks pregnant and two sundays ago I was having contractions so my doctor sent me to the hospital but was not dilating at all. They sent me home and last week at my appointment I was 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. I was pleased and didn't think anything of it cause it's normal to start dilating. But yesterday I had another doctors appointment(exactly 1 week later)and the doctor said that I was 5-6 cm dilated with bulging membranes and the baby is very low. He sent me to the hospital and the doctor there was not very concerned so she sent me home after 1 hour of observation. I have felt no contractions other than BH contractions but I do have a ton of pressure in my pelvis area and feel like the baby is going to drop onto the floor when I stand up. Should I be concerned that I got sent home. The oncall doctor said that I was only 36 weeks but that's not possible and I'm measuring at 39 weeks. Any suggestions?
