Sent home with no baby

The doctor sent me home after 4 1/2 hours of contractions. I was sooo upset. They gave me an IV of pitosin, but my cervix wouldn't dialate/efface and he didn't want to push it anymore (break my water) and end up with a c-section when there is no immediate danger to the baby. I go back to the doctor on Monday, so unless something happens on its own between now and then it'll be next week at the earliest that she makes her appearance.

I felt like an idiot crying while the doctor said to shut everything off and send me home. I know it makes sense, but I was so looking forward to holding her. Now I have to see if daycare will let Zack come back today or if they've already filled his spot and I have to go back to work today - the worst part of the deal!
