ok so I am 36 wks 5 days and started having contractions monday morning 5 am they have been 6-8 mins apart and have only stopped for a couple hours yesterday morning I saw dr on monday and they sent me home and said to call when pain was 8-10 and pain scale 1-10 they are only about a 5 but I haven't slept and feel so naseaus and just don't know what to do ! I was 70 % effaced and 2cm on monday what would you do ? I don't wanna get th hour to the hospital and get sent home again ! or thm finally stop but I can't keep doing this either I'm shaky and tired and miserable !
With my first I had this happen...three nights of no sleep and contractions that went down to 5 minutes apart. It was labor but it was totally unproductive. I had a problem with my uterus being uncooperative it stopped contracting at 8 cm too. Anyways, unless the contractions are getting stronger and closer together chances are you aren't progressing in terms of dilation. BUT after 3 nights of this I went to the hospital and complained and I was 3 cm with lots of walking around I made it 4 and they admitted me. You could try that tactic.
