Early Labor :( ~JeNn~ BeAn~ 54 kids; Washington 633 posts

I got sent home from the hospital today because my contractions weren't regular enough for them to keep me. I am 3 CM dilated and did not progress at all while there. This has never happened with my other kids I was either in labor or not, im so annoyed and in so much f**king pain im pissed! I have a 2 yr old and a 4 yr old at home that I am trying to take care of but its so getting hard because even though my contractions arnt close enough together sometimes they are extremely painful and I cannot handle them. Has anybody else went through this? How long did it take you to actually go into labor, or what did you do to make them more regular and start doing something?

I was in early labor for 4 weeks with contractions 5-7 minutes apart. It sucks.

I have been going through that for two and a half weeks now. It sucks but I am hoping to get to term.

I wish they would of at least given me something to stop them, but they said at 36 weeks they dont stop labor so im really hoping they either stop on their own or I have this child.

with my last baby (which happened to be my 5th) I was in the same situation for about a week.....it sucked but right b4 real labor started ,i got a break for about 6hrs w/no contraction (got to get good sleep). woke up to a strong contraction and after 2 contractions , they went right from 10min apart to five min. Labor started at around 5:45am and she was born by 8am .....was only at the hospital about an hour b4 she was out :)

I would be happy to be sent home if I were you, considering you aren't due for another almost four weeks. Your baby's lungs could still be immature. Keep bakin' that baby momma it will be over before you know it!

They didn't stop my labor either and it lasted 4 weeks. I heard the stuff they stop labor with sucks too.
