I might have sorta figured this out. I was up late last night and found where the handwritten notes were transcribed. Then I did some googling today (when I should've been working
). I think my contractions stalled because his head was tilted and he got stuck. A little more reading tells me that there should've been other things tried rather than just waiting to see if he would come unstuck. DP says he remembers them physically trying to un-wedge his head, but I don't remember that. He doesn't remember anyone trying to get me to walk around more. At some point on Aug 5 the handwritten notes say Asynclitic, but that isn't transcribed anywhere, just failure to progress
This isn't everything obviously, just some facts I picked out.
