not that this is what she wants to hear but i was at 4cm with ds1 for 18 hours and then went from 4-10 in a half hour... so... you never know how fast those last cms will go!

You can do it, Crafty!

Totally agree with this, the 1 cm an hour (is not only silly) but it also is an AVERAGE, so you may stall, which like PP said, is normal, but then things can REALLY take off!

Hang in there! Trust your body, trust your baby!

Thanks for your kind posts. I hope she gets to read them. I know, at least, she is feeling all of your good energy. You know this can be very discouraging. She always talks of how sweet you all are, and now I see it for myself!

I hope you all have wonderful births -- I know you will!

There's something about 4! I stalled there too and then opened to 10 in one contraction after a little loopy gas. I literally left my body! I just needed to relax.
I hope you are holding your baby by now Crafty. Lot's of positive thoughts your way.
