how much longer

ok so today i went to my drs and i am 3cm and my contractions are 3 mins apart. BUT they sunt me home and told me to come back when i can no longer talk through the contraction or my water breaks, how much longer will that take? Will i have to go weeks with contractions or is my baby on its way? BTW i am 36 weeks and we knew early on this would be a early delieverly at my rate when can i expect things to get in more motion?

  • It could take a while
    I was 1 cm for almost 2 months and contracting from 30 weeks
    could be tonight
    could be next week

  • @ 37 weeks i was 4 cm dilated & my contractions were 3 mon apart my doctor kept me over night to see if i'd progress but since i didn't they induced me the next morning & they had to break my water.... good luck with everything try alot of walking that might help

  • I have been that way since last Sat. It really sucks. My contractions get worse at night. I am also about 60% thinned and "really soft"
