So Katye has been working real hard. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.
Due to [insert lots of gory details here], we are past a second water breaking, Katye is dilated to 9 cm (10 being fully dilated), and the baby has hair -- as reported by the midwife during her work.
There have been some surprisingly challenging spots, but things are progressing well now. (saying "surprisingly challenging" here may be the most intensely understated thing I've ever said)
The second BBDR isn't here yet, so we're at least an hour out. I definitely know I'm no good at anticipating anything in this process, so I'll report back in when I can.
So much for "see you on the other side."
