I had BH off and on for two weeks before getting a 3 day break and going into Saturday night when all of this happened. The contractions dilated me from .5 to 1cm in a time frame of 8ish hours but I didn't dilate up to a .5cm more while I was in the hospital for 3 hours which is why they sent me home.

I get the impression that effacement & dilation are pretty good indicators of onset of labor:

Matthew 22:37-39
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

Teehee, whatever you call it it's all your body's way of preparing for baby to arrive. It's all normal, all real, and all a necessary part of bringing baby into the world. *hugs*
I've known people to walk around dilated, effaced, even with water broken - for days (or longer!) before baby was ready to arrive (if your water breaks, go right in :))
Doctors have been trying for a very long time to set a clock to the labor and delivery process, and they have yet to accomplish it. >.<
She's coming! Soon!!! This, we know for sure! <3

If you're worried, go get checked out again - it won't be the first time a new momma's been nervous or unsure.
You're very close - there is no doubt about that. It's their job to make sure you're okay. Make 'em work!

Rest up, Flint -do your best to relax.
Try not to fight through the pain, don't try to escape it, don't tense up.
Relax into it, and things will progress more quickly for you. . .
. . . use your breathing techniques to help with this.

I called the dr every 15 min for the last 2.5 hours but no answer. I guess because he isn't there the office decided to show up late. I'll just wait until my appointment Wednesday morning unless something happens.

That... is just absurd. L&D doctors usually have an on-call number where they can be reached - for obvious reasons! *grumblesatdoctors*
I'm sure you'll know if you need to get in sooner! I think I'm hoping that you do!!! *hugs*
*fingers crossed* for Wednesday's appointment!

Is there a particular reason I can no longer eat anything but chicken flavored pasta, cheerios, ice cream and peanut butter sandwiches? If I eat anything else I have contractions so bad I can't speak or stand. They last for about an hour and die back down to my normal, moderately painful but tolerable contractions.

Oh wow .. That's kinda weird .. Makes me wonder.. But it's always good to listen to your body when pregnant . There are often nutritional needs behind these things .
