I'm sorry to ask, I'm just a little confused. Did they just send you home for failure to progress or did they actually stop your labor by giving you terbutaline or something of the sort?

Yeah did they send you or stop it with medication? The two are very different. It would be normal to be sent home at 3cms, in any other hospital. Hopefully baby comes soon!

I was thinking the same thing Brie. I was one of those people who had off the chart contractions for weeks but never dilated until my water broke. I went to the hospital more than once because my contractions were within the length that they wanted them to be (5 in an hour if I remember correctly) but was sent home because I didn't dilate pass a 3 or 4. Even after my water broke it took me over 10 hours to get to a 5cm and then I went from a 5 to a 10 in less than 30 minutes. With all that said I don't find anything strange about being sent home for failure to progress even if you are 38 or 39 weeks.

Now if they used terbutaline I find it kind of odd. Although I have read on other forums of people getting it at 36 or even 37 weeks sometimes, I have never personally heard of anyone getting it at 38 weeks or later.

If they stopped it with medicine..that is weird. Especially that far along. And if they did, hopefully the doctor has a good explanation for it.

I am so confused, no doctor would stop a labour at 39 weeks that is just... like I would literally look into sueing a doctor because he/she shouldn't have a license.

I was 41 weeks pregnant with my son and only dilated 1-2 cms with pretty reg contractions but they were only 7 mins apart so they sent me home. lol I came back 8 hours later 6-7cms with contractions every 2min and they admitted me. If the hospital was really busy and you weren't progressing- it is likely he just sent you home to go through the first stage of labor- pp said active labor isn't until the second stage.
