Okay so I am 37wk and 2days. I have been to the hospital 3x and each time sent home. I have been in labor since Sunday off and on Strong Contrx but not effective enough to push me past 2-3cm. The last hospital visit was last night and it was so painful I was crying and just needing this little one to get out. I got to a solid 3cm but I wasn't dialating enough for them to keep me. I couldn't walk and barely talk. My contrx were coming every 2-3 min. I am at my witts end!!!! I am trying to VBAC but if they would have let me have a c-sec then I would have said yes last night. Horrible I know!! Well anywhoo . . . they sent me home with some pain killers Lortab I think and I was so miserable last night I took just 1 but now here I am stuck feeling like I have to start over again to be as strong in labor as I was getting to last night. I am starting to feel pain again now but I am so discouraged that I will be in pain forever with no baby!!! I have been walking, sitting in massage chairs (at the mall) sex (as much as I could handle), more walking, trying to rest, I am out of ideas. I tried the castor oil thing with ds#2 but all I ended up with was a raw butt and no baby. I have bad roids this time so I am not to keen to want another raw butt (although anything at this point is tempting) Does anyone have any suggestions that might help me. I know its a waiting game but I am starting to become desperate for relief. Labor in itself is tiring so a week full of it with no end result is so horrible. HELP PLEASE!!! There has to be a way to help my girl come out. I feel like my body is an old car that you keep trying to start but won't and then finally it goes. When is my go. I was early with ds#2 so I figured with all this labor she would be too. I can't hold on much longer. If I can get to 4cm then they will admit me because I will have shown that my contrx are being effective enough. Is there any hope?
