Sounds like what I just went through 4 weeks ago with my 2nd pregnancy!! :( You are living through hell right now, and I feel so bad for you!! I had the same symptoms, and couldnt sleep, couldnt stand, sit nothing, everything HURT!! I was dilated to 4 cm's for about a week (about 2 weeks before my due date), and when I went into the hospital (a week before I was due) and said I had had enough of the torture of cramps, and contractions on and off (they wouldnt ever get regular) that I was DONE!! And, I was in tears from being so frustrated from it all... So, they checked me and I was dilated to 6 cms, but not in active labor. :( They broke my water, which started some contractions, but then again like usual they stopped... Then they started some pitocin, and it was like "jumper cables" they said to get my body back in gear. They left it on for about 45 minutes then let me off of it and my body took over from there. So, if nothing is happening except just on and off contractions maybe this will work... I asked my ob about "average" lengths, or if it would be like my 1st pregnancy and she said if this was my 3rd pregnancy and the first 2 were the same she could say I had a chance of the same thing happening again. But, every pregnancy is different!! To give you hope though, the time it took to go from 6-10 cms was only about 45 mins, and my pushing only took 10 minutes!! It was SO much shorter and you know HOW to push so it makes it much better. Just make sure to drink LOTS of water, walk around and change positions a lot... I hope this gives you some help. Its just crazy that our symptoms sound so much the same, and it was my 2nd pregnancy too!! GOOD LUCK!!!
