I am 38 weeks pregnant and for the last 2 days I have been having 2-3 mild contractions every 10 minutes. I have had my bloody show and the mucous plug is just about all gone now. I went to the hospital last night to check how things were progressing because with my first child I didn't know I was in labour until I was 7cm. They put me on the monitor and the contractions were as I said.. 2-3 every 10mins. An internal showed I was only 2cm and 50-80% effaced. The midwife informed me because the contractions were so frequent I would more than likely be back that night or the day after. Its now the day after and the contractions remain the same. The past two nights I have had bugger all sleep coz of these contractions and I am really fed up.
How long do you think the doctors will let me continue getting these contractions and no sleep before they intervene? They are fine while I'm awake but don't allow me to sleep more than a couple of hours. Or will they just let me go?
Any one have any advice?
