Today I went to triage due to nausea and vomitting. I couldn't hold fluids down and was dehydrated. I didn't have regular contractions though til I was on the monitor. I began having regular, painful contractions one after another for several hours. They checked me three times and said that my contractions were not changing the cervix. I was 2cm 60% effaced when I got there and when I left. The contractions were very painful!! Anyway they sent me home and gave me some meds to help me sleep through them due to their intensity and regularity. They were about every 3 mins apart or so. The contractions just NOW let up, like in the past 2 hours. I still get them, but they're slow and manageable. I'm sad that they were painful and regular and very non productive. I am not even sure I'd know when to go back due to this. The nurses were even confused.
Has anyone dealt with this before?
