so frustrated!!! i want this baby out now!!!! **need to vent**

its starting to feel like shes never actually gonna come, and im gonna be stuck being preggo for forever! and yes, i realize i still have two weeks before my due date, plus the 2 weeks she could go overdue, but we've been in and out of early labor so many times now im starting to lose track.... i get strong, close contractions for hours upon hours (contractions get to within 5 mins apart and are steady) and just when i think this is it, its time to call the dr ( they dont want u to call until they are 3 mins or ur water breaks) they slow down, and im a little more dialated at my next apt, and then friday night they FINALLY got to 3 mins, and by the time we got to the hospital they were 2 mins, i spent the night in L&D being monitored and pumped full of fluids, was told we would most likely be holding our little girl by early sat morning,but i only dialated to 3 cm. after being told to sleep and try to relax in hopes i would get that one more cm i needed for them to break my water or help in any way i still wasnt doing anything other than her slowly dropping more so they got me up and i walked the halls for over an hour and my contractions got so bad i could barely stand let alone walk thru them and the nurses thought for sure id be more dialated. so off i go hobbling back to my room to be hooked up to the monitors and get checked, still nothing, so they gave me a dose of stadol thinking i was tensing up too much to allow my cervix to change anymore and to knock me out to let my body do its thing,went through a couple hours of being in and out of consciousness and still nothing but slowed contractions , so i got sent home to stay on light bedrest until my appt thurs. most likely if i can get just that one more cm by then they can do something to help progress labor, but i just feel like complete shit, my whole body aches like ive been hit by a train....and to top it off im still having contractions, but not as strong as they were in L&D, just strong enough to make it hard to do anything......i just want to hold my little girl!!!!!

    Awe. Hugs. My friend went a week over due without dilating at all and bam her water starte leaking. 7 hrs later hello baby. She's now 3 days over due with this baby stuck at 2 cm and her dr is a quack driving her crazy. One minute wants to induce next he changes his mind. So I'm sure. She feels ya. Her contractions are 3 min apart. I hope your baby girl comes soon and healthy!!

    I had contractions starting and stopping for 5 weeks before I had my third. It was torture. But there was no way I was going to let them intervene unless there was something wrong. I learned my lesson with my first on that :(

    Had the same with my 4th, but that time I didn't get my hopes up, so it wasn't so bad that way.

    No fun.

    I had prodromal labor like this with my 2nd baby. It is so hard to deal with and annoying!

    Hang in there! You will be holding your precious baby soon.

    thats horrible!!!! im going on just over 2 weeks with this and im miserable, i cant imagine 5 weeks of this.... i dont want them to intervene with drugs or anything, at this point im fine with them breaking my water or something without drugs.... my contractions r getting strong again and it feels like labors trying to start up, but im trying so hard not to get my hopes up and to ignore it until either my water breaks or i cant walk thru the contractions...

    I think getting to the hospital makes you too anxious to progress. Try just staying home and walking through the contractions, do things that relax you until it finally feels like your are really doing something. Ignore the timing for a awhile and focus on how your body feels. Your body will tell you when it's really time to go. I know it's frustrating. This is the most frustrating part of pregnancy, being so close yet so far.
