I am 37 weeks pregnant and I went to the hospital 11pm saturday night and was monitered. I was told i was 2cm dillated but the contractions were irregular. They kept me in for 2 nights and i was still having contractions late at night but again they were irregular. Any sugeestions or advice for me?

I had my first child at 37 weeks, but my water broke first and I had no contractions so was induced. Anyway, sounds like your body is in the process of labor. Is this your first? Many times with first pregnancies it can take a long time to actually get into active labor. Your irregular contractions are helping your cervix to dialate. With my second child, I had irregular contractions for almost 2 weeks. When I finally went in to the hospital during active labor, I was almost 4 cm dialated. Just try and relax, let your irregular contractions do the work they are meant to do! If they become regular, very painful and you are unable to talk through them, it's time to get to the hospital! Good Luck!

i had the same problem with my last one you just have to ride it out if you are dialating then your doc will most likley induce soon if not and they are not productive contractions he will let you ride it out my friend has had non productive but regular contractions for weeks now and being unable to take anything due to a heart condition she has just had to ride it out some womens bodys adjust differently and every pregnancy is different i hope you the best and i hope things work out
