After 27 hours or so mine ended up stopping. I am guessing a practice round for me. I wish you luck Hun, I know exactly how it feels I cried more than once today, didn't understand how some could be painful and yet my cervix didn't change.
My mom said if you can text type or talk through them there not strong enought.. lol take a bath.. if they subside its false labor if they get worse its real..
The rule my hospital gives is 5-1-1. 5 min apart or less, one minute contractions, for at least one hour. Nor sure if that helps at all but good luck and here's to a safe and speedy delivery!!!
Yesss they can :/ it *****. They always sent me home with whag I thought were strong contractions close together but I guess they weren't strong enough even though they were 3 min apart they would send me home saying to come back when they are stronger. But they always say to go in if they are consistently close together like that for an hr! Maybe you should go in again! The last few weeks are the most stressful especially if your a ftm. Bc you don't know what to expect. But don't be afraid to go in no matter what. You never know
Im still getting them pretty bad.. Still 4-5 min apart some even 3min apart...
I just don't want to go in and still be 1 n half and then they send me home...
I mean they can't just leave me with these frequent contractions can they?.
It is very possible you dilated more. When I went into labor I dilated 2 cm within an hr of being in triage in l&d. And I had a bunch of false alarms so I started going by if the contractions are strong enough to where I couldn't talk, walk or breath through them then it was tome to go. If you can still hold a conversation through them it's most likely not the real deal.
I am in the same exact position. Been contracting for 24 hours and 4-5 mins for 4 hours with bad ones and I was 1 cm and sent home :-(
Yes there is a possibility you could dialate more in 2 hours.
With my 1st child i was sent home, and went back in an hour and was ready to start pushing. So if you feel you need to go back, and the contractions are worse then go back.
Walk as much as you can around the hospital
Yes actually some women dilate faster.than others
With my first I was so slow and then did the rest almost instantly, go with your gut and if they don't admit you say you'll wait it out in lobby to be safe, bet they'll check you in then ;)
