I have been having contractions for a week now?

Does that mean that it wont be long i will be 39 weeks on wed. I've been to the hospital twice and havent changed any im at 2cm, 70%, -3. The contractions have been 1-2 minutes apart for 3-5 hours each time it really sucks and hurts like hell. I'm ready to be done with it!!!

  • Oh I hate to tell you this, but I go on for weeks like that until they break my water for me. Next time tell the doc that it is too much for you and they need to help you along. You should be 40 weeks then.

  • i'm 38 weeks tomorrow and i can't tell if i'm having contractions or not... i mean i feel like it but it doesn't hurt as much as i thought.. but if your that far along they should be able to do something to help you along if you aren't getting anywhere by yourself.. ask your dr. or tell em that you want to be induced
