I am 39 weeks pregnant and am unsure of what should be occuring for me to go to the doctor. With my first pregnancy i wasnt really having any painful contractions and then it just hit me REALLY hard and was in bad labor before i knew it so i dont want to wait too long.
5 days ago i was dilated to a 2 and 50%
I have been having diarhea, she has dropped significantly so i feel a lot of pressure, lower back pain, swelling of hands and feet and i have quite frequent BAD cramping and stomach tightening up but nothing EXTREMELY painful. I just dont want to waste a trip to the hospital but then again i dont wanna wait too long

You can call ur hospital & tell them whats going on & they will let u know if u need to go in or not..Look for blood,alot of mucus discharge,bad cramp like contractions 5 or 10 min apart!

Sounds to me like you're starting labor. I'd call the doctor and ask how to proceed & when to come to the hospital.
