So I began contractions around 1130pm and now it’s 6am and I’m 7cm dilated without using any medications to speed contractions or cervix thinning! Baby Alexandra and I are a great team! She’s progressing well and fast and my body is handling things perfectly. My husband is getting beyond excited and it’s keeping me so calm. 3 more cm till I start pushing! Woo! I’m very happy and content right now. Only a few more hours or so!
