Is stress preventing my labour?

I've had all the signs of early labour for two days now. I really thought things were kicking off this afternoon after having two, albeit, little gushes of fluid...

Yesterday I had INTENSE back pain and was violently ill. Better today, bit sick and I was pretty sure I had three uncomfortable contractions and asked my partner to come home just in case, because he works an hour away and would have been even longer if he had come home in rush hour. Since he's been here he's huffing and puffing about having to come home early and making me feel guilty, now I'm feeling absolutely nothing and want him to bugger off...

Now we've had a row and I've read stress will delay labour... Is this really true?? I thought I'd want him here and he'd want to be here but I think it might be best if he wasn't if that's the case....
