hi i was in slow labour for 3 weeks, just kept stopping and starting, but as waters hadnt broke they were happy to let me continue, (apparently will only let you go for up to 72hrs after waters break) but the day the action happened i woke up with what felt like horrendous constipationm put up with it all day started to dawn on me the cramps were coming and going every 5 mins and went to hospital for relief from constipation, got there told i had water infection but as was overdue whilst was there they went to do a sweep and realised i was 7cm dilated! was in labour ward witin an hour as as soon as they said you were 7cm dilated my body went ok here we go and kicked it up a gear. good luck!!
