So I texted on and off with Dosergirl last night. She made the trip to her birth center, and was (what I am assuming) is 90% effaced (she texted 9%) and between 2-3cm dialated. I know they were concerned with her not being able to sleep so they gave her a sleeping pill to try and allow her to rest.

Just got another text this morning and it didn't sound like it helped her any. Though she is still dialating

So if you can think dialating thoughts for her! She does think that she should have the baby today though! Come on Doser, You can do it!

I just got a text this morning that she is 100% effaced and 8 cm. She's getting nervous about the home stretch, this was at 2:21am. It's been one long labor for Dosergirl, I know. She started contractions over 2 days ago! I am hoping that by now she is holding her LO, and resting peacefully~

~~Please Keep her in your thoughts!~~

I'm sure she is exhausted! I'm hoping everything is going well and that she is asleep right now!

I love her name! (the movie was great, too!) It's got the same ring as the one we picked.

Congrats, mama! You deserve an award for that marathon labor! Can't wait to hear about it!
