Latent phase of labor

Well at 2 am last night I passed my mucus plug. I had to have a snack, of course, before going to the hospital. When we were there the contractions were every 3 mins. We got sent home as my cervix had just barely started to dilate and the baby was doing well. When we got home my contractions were regular and coming every 5- 10 mins and lasting 1 min. Now they have tapered off. For a while they were every 10 mins, then every 15 mins and then every 30 mins and then they took a break.
I just read that this phase of labor can take a few hours to 20 hours, this is when the cervix will dilate to 4 cm. I am obviously on the latter end of that scale. My cervix this morning was still a little posterior. The cervix will move anterior as you move into the next phase. I am getting a contraction right now! That was a good one. Well better eat some lunch and get ready for the next contraction 🙂
