You still have two weeks left. Why wear yourself out like that? That only works if your body was going to do it anyway. I was at five for about 2 months and they still didn't take me. And with multiple babies doctors take into account that you can dialate and undialate slightly because of the stretchyness of the cervix. When you are standing up all day, then get checked you will appear more dialated. My friend is an OB nurse, and she told me dialation isn't used as a sole indicator to keep someone at the hospital. There needs to be regular contractions as well unless the patient is at 6 cm or more, or dialating every hour. There has to be progress.
