omg so i went to the hospital last night and i was 4 cm and contracting but they sent me home because they wanted me to have harsher contractions or be at 6cm dilated. i guess they bearly changed this in the past few months but ugh i am in such pain and discomfort. and i dont want to go back and just have them send me home again. any thoughts or wisdom?

I'm surprised they sent you home. Especially if your still contracting.

Are the contractions getting closer?

I'm also surprised that they sent you home if you were constantly contracting and already at a 4. Hm, have you tried calling them and asking? That way you don't have to make a whole trip up there.

I also can't believe they sent home at 4 cm. The amount of time it took me to go from 4 to 5 with both of my pregnancies was like half an hour! How close together are your contractions?

Have they gotten closer?When I went in I was 3 cm and they were 5 min apart, but by the time I was hooked up to the monitors and all I was 4 cm and they were 2 mins apart.
