2cm Dilated 3 days remaining.

Went to the er today since I'm having contractions 5minutes apart only to be sent back home. I'm due on 10th. Lol very frustrated just wondering when is the right time? Should I just stay at home until the water breaks. Now my Dr said I go back when the contractions are 3 minutes apart.

I would wait till they are three minutes then call them and see whether they want you to go back in. Which they should do then go from there. Good luck I hope you have a smooth birth :)

That's super frustrating, just call ahead and keep communicating with your doctor. I had contractions nonstop for a full week that I thought were the start of labor before I had my daughter.

Evening primrose helps speed up the process. I took some when I was pregnant with my little girl two yes ago. I was 2cm and schedule to be induced (was 40wks), wasn't trying to speed up the process just wanted to fight the cramps lol (my contractions were causing cramping)

At 39w6d, I was not dilated at all.  A day after my due date, went for a long walk, had some mild contractions that pooped out, had sex and woke up at 6 am in a lot of pain.  My contractions were all over the place as far as timing, between 2 and 7 minutes apart.  I knew it was time to go in because I literally could not stand during contractions.   Got to the hospital 4 hours after they started, I was dilated to 10.  So I would say to go back when they are really painful.  (Just my opinion).
