So confused!

We wernt to the hospital with contractions every 3-4 mins and my doctor even said I deff seemed to be in labor but sent me home cuz I was only 1cm and 50% effaced. I took a nap and then they stopped. Ever since I've been getting contractions here and there. This my third pregnancy and I've never had this happen before so what is going on?

  • Sometimes it happens. The contractions can be coming and going, or even be consistent for a bit, and then slow down. Labor is an unpredictable state. Try to get some sleep while you can, before things get more intense. A bath can help you relax (and it may slow things down rather than speed things up). A walk may help get things going. Good luck!
