i was just checked and I am a fingertip dilated. You can't really think about things in terms of normal labor, with something like this, I've been told that pretty much out of nowhere I will know that baby is coming, and baby will be there shortly after that. the cervix just kind of opens - not like a traditional labor where it's in gradual stages.
Still, progress is good, and I'm thankful for it.
They're bringing me some Ambien to help me sleep. I haven't gotten much sleep since Saturday when all this started, and only 2 hours last night. I need a clear head to deal with what is to come tomorrow.
If you don't hear from me again tonight I have fallen asleep, and if you don't hear anything by morning, hope for us that it means our baby has been born and passed, and we are enjoying the peace and quiet with him/her.
