well, after going through 4-1-1 like they said, I am just 90% effaced and 1.5 cm dilated so the midwives sent me home. so I'm having a bowl of soup and then taking a nap - when I lay down, the contractions space out more so I should be able to rest a little. then back to the old hanging out.
just got word my girlfriend just delivered a baby girl! one hour of pushing. well, I'll be next on the list. I read that no matter what happens, a baby will always be born on its birthday. so we're in good shape!
