I'm at the point in this pregnancy that I am fully convinced the baby is never coming. Desperation is kicking in and I'm feeling a little hopeless...that's my preface because I'm sure I sound a little crazy right now but....

Is it common to regress at this point? I am 4.5 cm dilated (not in labor and very few contractions) and 80% effaced. I left my MW yesterday overjoyed with the progress. The last thing she said was, "I'll probably see you tonight or tomorrow in L&D" We thought I was ready to go... but NOTHING.

So, here's the question---do women regress with dilating? Is that possible? Could I go in tomorrow and only be 2cm dilated? I know it sounds crazy but I just can't comprehend how I'm that advanced with NO signs of active labor in sight.

Thanks for any and all input
