I am 37 wekks with my third child. The previous two I had to be induced at 42 weeks, I never went into natural labor. Both babies were big but Molly who was born last March was 9.2lbs!! Currently I am sooo uncomfortable and anxious to go into labor, I went to the mw on monday she checked and I was 3cm dilated and 70% effaced, she swepped my membranes. Since monday I have been hoping and praying I would go into labor. Yesterday at about 3:00 I starrted having some regular contractions but they werent too painful, I called and the mw said to come to the hospital. On the way there the contractions started coming closer together every 4 min. So I get to the hosp. hoping they are going to say oh yeah your in labor and maybe give me the pitocin if I need it to make my contractions a little stronger. NO, I was having contractions every 2-4 min. and they were getting a little stonger, but I was still at 3 cm, so THEY SENT ME HOME!!! I was sooo dissapointed! I wanted to go home with a baby!! I went to bed still having mild contractions, but woke up a few times in the night just feeling crampy and thats about it. I wish there was something I could do to get myself into active labor, we've tried sex, and walking, alot but when the contractions do come on they eventually go away. I dont want to go to 42 weeks again!!! Help!!!
