So ready to have this baby.... don't bash me

I am 39 weeks right now and I am just so ready to go into labor. When I was pregnant with my son I had strong painful contractions 2-4 times an hour for 4 weeks before finally going into labor. Then I was in labor for 4 days and finally pushed for almost 4 hours before he finally decided to make his grand entrance. It was brutal. Well, it seems to be starting all over again and I just dont think I can physically take all that again, especially since Ds is only 17 months old right now and DH is working 80 hours a week, so its all on me. I have no friends or family in the town we live in so I have no help. I have been having contractions regularly for almost 2 weeks now and sometimes they get so bad I start to throw up.... nothing is really happening though. I have been to the doc twice and I am now 50% effaced and dialted 2 cm but not really going into labor and it is just so exhausting. Ugh I wish there was something I could do to push over this hump and just go into labor. This is just very frustrating and exhausting and I feel so guilty that ds is not really getting 'all of me' right now.

I suggest that you go see a chiropractor positioning of the baby can play a key role in what you are experiencing.  An adjustment can help a lot.

Chiropractor, make sure you're taking Cal-Mag, and you can also try belly binding to bring your uterus into a more favorable position so baby can better position itself.
