I'm in the hospital because of massive contractions all day and they said I'm still at a 2, i don't want to be sent home again but I think I'm gonna be. I don't understand why I haven't dilated at all! I'm scared that I'm gonna end up never going past this point

Well, baby just may not be ready yet. You can be barely dilated for a while before actual labor starts.

Yeah,they are sending me home, but they want to test me for preeclampsia because of protein in my urine.

You could potentially go another 2 weeks. It's rough, but it's best for baby.

Good luck with the pre-e. I had it last pregnancy. How is your blood pressure?

My BP is ok, they are testing for pre-e because of the protein and my feet and legs being swollen rather badly

Since they are sending you home get out side and walk and work out it will help with the dilation. You shouldn't go over 40 weeks. There are the likely chance of stillborn. Not trying to scare you

But I was sent to the hospital by the nurse to see what was going on they idmitte me and they started the pitocen and the doctor gave me an option to have my water broke or they can send me home. Both dh and I have decided to have my water broken.

I hope everything goes well.

When baby needs a nudge After 39 or 40 weeks, it’s sometimes best to deliver sooner rather than later: Studies have shown that newborn admissions to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) increase slightly when a pregnancy lasts 40 to 42 weeks. And stillbirth, though still rare, becomes a concern: At 40 weeks, the risk is 2 to 3 per 1,000 babies; at 42 weeks, it’s 4 to 7 per 1,000. If labor hasn’t started spontaneously, you’ll probably be induced at 41 weeks—at the latest. “If your cervix has started to dilate, odds are in your favor for a successful induction,” Warshak says. Translation: You won’t end up having a Cesarean section.

Normal human gestation is actually 40+ weeks without human intervention...

I'm guessing you didn't see my quest that I quoted my self for her!

My husband's friend went over 40 weeks and had her baby still born.
