We're At a 5


About half an hour ago we got another checkup from the nurse at Becca's now dilated to a five. For those of you unfamiliar with childbirth (like myself) the end goal is a 10; however, I've been told that the last few centimeters come much faster than the first few so we should be over half way done. The nurse also put an internal contraction monitor in place so that she could keep better track of how things are progressing and manage the pitocin better. Apparently the epidural is working great because isn't feeling a think and is actually taking a nap right now.
