I was so close to going to hospital last night but dh told me to try and get some sleep first so I lay in bed and fell asleep even though I thought there was no way I would actually sleep through that! It was PAINFUL. But I must have just been exhausted. I woke up with a super dry mouth so I guess I was dehydrated and labour stalled like you say. I still have contractions again this morning but I'm not going to time them anymore, like you say, unless it's "omg we are going to hospital now!" I'm going to just try to relax.
Seeing my ob this morning. Very curious to know if I've dilated at all. I would be very surprised if I haven't as yesterday was definitely not BH.
