I am 60% effaced and 2 cm dilated.
The thing about labor is that once it starts, I have to see it through to the end. I don't get to say half way through "just kidding, lets take a break and start up again tomorrow". It's one of the most difficult and rewarding things I've done in my life.
As I was sitting through a very noticeable and uncomfortable contraction, it occurred to me that perhaps being pregnant for another two weeks isn't such a terrible idea. Unfortunately, I don't have much of a say. I really am ready, but it's always mind boggling when I discover that my body is actually doing something.
