I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow friday. Went to my doctor yesterday morning and I was 1.5 cm dilated. I've been having pain but it's off and on when I walk it really hurts. I need help. What do I do now?

Jodi I went to the doctor and I am contracting every 2 to 6 mins and I'm dilated 2 cm already. They send me home but I haven't been able to sleep because my contractions are getting worse.

It isn't about becoming more painful, it is about becoming more regular and being contractions. The pain when you sleep, stand or sitting is normal. That is not contractions. That's just normal discomfort of late pregnancy.

I am waiting for the pain to become more painful. It's getting hard for me to sleep and my lower belly is hurting when I sit up or even standing up. How would I know I'm dilated more cm?

You wait. I'm not sure what you mean by needing help, but yes, late pregnancy and waiting can be painful. You wait until you have contractions and they become regular.
