I would try getting on all fours and leaning against a bed or couch or something that height, then rock your hips back and forth. It also helps to speed up the labour apparently.

RELAX RELAX RELAX. Because you know what is coming your body is tensing up and only increasing the pain of your contraction. During each contraction focus on something small and breath through your nose and out pursed lips.

I stayed and labored at home until 4 cm (mostly because I couldn't reach my hubby at work :x). What helped me the most was rocking on my labor ball and applying counter-pressure with my hands to my lower back during intense contractions.

Oh I feel sorry for you. I"m in the same boat. Contractions since 3am yesterday and now they're mostly 3 minutes apart and hurt sooo much more :( Good luck I hope your baby comes soon!
