7cm and Counting
So we finally headed over the the hospital and got settled in for the delivery. Laur was 7cm dilated and 80% effaced when we got here, which is awesome. I can’t believe what a rock star she has been through all this. I knew she was tough but this is pretty ridiculous. The midwives seem to be equally impressed with the way she has handled labor. Anyway, she’s spent time on the birth ball, in the tub, and walking the halls showing off what all the nurses and midwives are calling the coolest labor gown they’ve seen. We’re hopeful she keeps moving along and gets this baby out in the next several hours.
Below are a couple pics our doula took after we got to the hospital.
