Stuck at 2cm

Ok ladies I'm 2cm dilated and was in the hospital over night having steady contractions but couldn't get past a 2. Any ideas on how to get things to change? I'm miserable with these contractions and I'm 38 weeks so the baby is healthy!

I am too! My due date is tomorrow! :(   He is just not ready yet. Apparently there is not much you can do. But I have been eating spicy food and pineapple today...lol. I am going to try to just relax tonight in a warm bath and try to visualze my baby coming. There is not much more we can do.

It sounds like prodromal labor to me or maybe a longer first stage of labor, there is no reason to be in hospital for now though, what i would do is go home, relaxm have a bath or shower, have some food and see what happens.

I think that being in your normal enviroment would help you more than staying there for now! Good luck

Yeah I went in about 530 yesterday and they sent me home about 11 this morning I forgot to mention that :/ I wanted to go home last night bc they kept telling me the contractions weren't changing anything so I thought if I'm going to be in pain and it not change anything why can't I be home in my own bed in pain lol but they wanted to keep me anyway!
