How can you be 4 and a half cm dilated effaced and in active labor but not be feeling any severely intense labor contractions?

Because you are very lucky! All women are different. Some dilate to higher numbers and 100% effaced and don't feel a thing. Just luck of the draw. It doesn't mean anything is wrong or that the labor will be better or worse in later stages. It just means that you are having a very easy labor up to now.

i had 5 kids and my labour all were diffnert.u can be in labour and not fell much pain at all. i know women had only bad pain for three hours then baby was born.

This is normal! However, once you become 7 cm dilated is time to get to the hospital. Even if your water breaks you don't have to go to the hospital until your contractions are 5-7 minutes apart.

I take Prozac for the last month and when I started feeling the drug about a week ago my pupils are very dilated after I take it.

Should be right after, since normally water breaks after you feeling contractions in minutes apart as sign of early labor phase
