Well, I decided that around 11pm they were indeed REAL labor pains. So at about 1am with them 5-8 mintues apart, we went to the hospital. The did a check right away and I was at4cm from 3cm before the "sweep" in the morning. The contx were coming 3-4 minutes apart. Then they wanted to check again about 3 hours later to see if there was progress. I was having hard PAINFULLLLLL contx. And the same nurse said I was still 4 but she could tell a difference.
So things continued for a few more hours and then another nurse checked and said that I was at 3cm and I needed to go home. Well. That was a shock.
So they sent me home at 6am. I went to bed with a sleeping pill they gave me. And just got up. My family is going to the mall now, so hopefully things will keep progressing.
