Okay, So in the past three weeks I have been to the hospital a total of 5 times!! The first time I was fine I got monitored and was having contraction like every 20 minutes. Second time, I got monitored and had contractions every 15/17 minutes. OK, Ok getting to the point. Last night I went to the hospital and I was having contractions every 1-1.5 minutes and they were like a 6 on the pain scale. The nurse checked me and I was 3 cm dialated which doubled from 4 days before that. They called the doctor and he gave me a pain killer shot and sent me home. The nurse said that the shot would not stop the contractions if I was in REAL LABOR, but just ease the pain and if it was false labor the contractions would stop all together. She also said that if my contractions didn't stop to come back in to the hospital. So my contractions never stopped and the pain just dropped to like a 3-4 and I started having major back pain, so i went back to the hospital today and they checked me and said I was a 2!!!!! (which I was told I was a 3 last night) I'm so upset and I just feel like they won't keep me until the baby's head is hanging out of me. What do you think??
