Contractions: Usually you get watched and monitored for a couple of hours and if you are making no changes then you are sent home with precautions, meaning reasons to come back to the hospital. You weren't making any progress and your baby looked good so your doctor felt it was early labor and you didn't need to be in the hospital yet. Good luck, babies always come out, they never stay in!
