My daughter delivered her baby girl a few weeks ago. Since she was being induced I was able to drive out the day before so I could be there with her to help. Sarah walked into the hospital and found out she was already 5 cm. She wasn't in labor or even having contractions.
After being on the pitocin for a bit she was checked again and was at 7. The next time she was checked she was at 9-9 1/2 so the nurse did what nurses do, and she was at 10 and ready to push. A few pushes and Elizabeth was here. Sarah did a fabulous job!
Meeting her little gal.
Wonderment and awe like only a newborn can give.
