I've been having strong regular contractions for days now and I had really really strong ones early this morning from 2:30am until 7:00am, but stopped. It seems like this has been happening to me lately. I think it even happened when I went into labor with my first too, but once I got to the hospital, I was at 3cm and my labor was augmented. I figured that this may have happened if I went to the hospital this morning, but I didn't want to be sent home AGAIN, which will make the 3rd time for this pregnancy.
I've been walking a lot and trying to stay active, even though I'm having difficulty coz the baby's so low. But I've read that stalled labor can also be caused by too much stress and exhaustion from the mother that the body cannot do what it needs to. Any opinions? Other than sex, walking, and castor oil?
