Why Did They Send Me Home

I am 37 weeks and dialated 3cm and was monitored for an hour at doc's office while having pretty intense contractions of 3 minutes. They had me walk for an hour then checked me again and said b/c i had not dialated any more that i was to go home. I was hoping they would induce me cause i am miserable and cannot sleep. This afternoon i lost my mucus plug and my baby has been dropped for almost a month now! How much longer could it possibly be???????

They send you home when you're not in labor, that's all. At 37 weeks you're just barely 'due', 37-42 is normal. You could still have weeks to go. If your body and baby aren't ready, they're not ready. Doctors are unlikely to induce until you're overdue.

not to burst your bubble, but i've been in early labor - dilated to 3cm - for 1w2d (i'm 36.5wks). my doctor said that with her last child, she was in early labor for a month! i'm hoping it doesn't last that long.. b/c i still get contractions.. but right now, it's just a waiting game. i've also lost my mucous plug - about 3 times now! LOL i hope yours comes soon!
