In the classes we took leading in preparation for the birth we (again probably I, Sarah probably already knew this) learned that typically the cervix needs to reach 10cm dilatation before the head can pass. Yesterday Sarah was 1-1.5, earlier this afternoon she was 3. Cathy just checked Sarah again and now she's at 5 cm. So we're halfway there! It was said earlier that the first 5 cm (0-5) of dilitation happen slower than the second 5cm (5-10). If that holds true more should happen hear.
We've really enjoyed our nurse Cathy today. She's been great. However it's become apparent to us that when her shift ends at 7PM we most likely won't have a child yet. It's strange how we've come to rely on Cathy so much and therefore will miss her. Sure the baby will still come, but it would've been neat to have it during Cathy's sift.
