I was sent home 3 times with my last. It makes you mad as hell. Especially when the MD sends you there first. Are you dilated. I was told that they would not keep you unless you were 4cm dilated or your water had broke. I feel your pain.

on March 14 I was sent home even though my contractions were 2-7 minutes apart and 2 cm. dialated.. on March 15 I was sent home again even though I was now 3 cm. dialated.. and still contracting.. how miserable .. even with the walking.. one the 16.. I was in agony.. I was finally 6 cm. and got an epidural and within minutes I was 9.5 cm. dialated.. go figure. my body just needed to relax without the pain... I gave birth 1 and half hour later... good luck ladies..

I wnet in with labor pains iofve minutes apart and had brownish discharge. (mucus plug) I was dilated like 1-2 cm and not efaced at all so they sent me home. my labor pains also subsied a bit. I went back in 24 hours later with pains 15 minutes apart, they were getting so strong I couldn't handle the pain anymore but were not any closer together. I had my baby within 3 days of losing my mucus plug..sdo you are getting close...

"...if the contractions don't get longer, stronger, and closer together and cause your cervix to dilate progressively, then what you're feeling is probably so-called 'false labor.'"
