Ugh!!!!!! I went to my OB today for my 39 week check up and the contractions I've had for the last two days every 4 minuted have gotten me NO WHERE Im still 1 1/2 cm 50% effaced. And on top of it my BP was up and they tested me for Cholestasis (sp?) Which Im waiting on the results. I really don't want to be induced monday but I will have to be if my little man doesn't show up by monday because of other medical issues

That's a bummer!  =(  Sounds like you could be in prodromal labor.  I hope you start dilating on your own before Monday so you won't have to be induced! Have you tried all the tips like walking, sex, bouncing on an exercise ball, etc?

prodromal labor is terrible! i remember sitting in the nursery, rocking in the chair and watching the clock (timing "cramps") night after night after never-ending NIGHT.

we are literally in the same ball park right now. :(
For my 39 week appointment today, I found out I am STILL 1 cm but I went to 80 % effaced. was 70 last week and 40 the week before.  and she's at a -1 station still.  and I have been contracting 5-3 minutes apart for 2 days now also. and if I make it to next tuesday, I will start induction also. how funny if we end up doing this the same night.

Yeah I stopped timing last night after the going to the hospital. I am not going to unless I feel like it honestly NEEDS to be timed. but I can feel them and when i look at the clock, they are still generally around the same consistancy.
and before next week would be great! I am scared of birth though at the same time..
