unless I dilate another cm

They are sending me home with intense contractions 4min apart exactly overdue. They will nit touch me or induce til after 41wks regardless of pain level if contractions or how bad the monitor shows them or how close. Bc I wont dilate past 3. Sooo upset. How am I supposed to sleep?

I would go for a walk right after they release you to help the contractions

Wth? Why not? My doctor said at 39 weeks we can think about inducing if I want and im only one centimeter dilated. Ill be 39 weeks Saturday
It doesn't make sense.

Im ready to try anything. My contractions are "labor contractions" but my cervix wont move. Its bs I swear theyre using me to get all the Medicaid moolah they can...

Nurse got off the phone with doc. She says ge will induce tues. Give my cervix time to keep trying but not leave me this way longer than necessary. Not totally happy since idk how ill sleep buuut it could be worse.
