L&D- again

I am so frustrated! Yesterday I was having little contractions on and off. Then around 10pm they started coming on REALLY strongly every 3-4 minutes. After a couple of hours John and I called my doctor who told me to come into L&D to be checked. 

By this time the contractions were really really hard and I was miserable. They hooked me up to the monitors and my contractions were all over the place! They checked me and I was 1cm dilated. 

They gave me juice and had me sit through the contractions for a couple of hours. Around 2am they became more regular- however they sent me home because my cervix is not changing. 

So i have been sitting here for hours in miserable pain. I have an appt. with my doctor at 1pm and I am just trying to make it until then. I am absolutely a mess!

Is your doctor talking about inducing you at 37 weeks? My OB said an amnio was required at 37 or 38 weeks but that it could be done if all was well.
