My mexican lady came in and was dilated to 6-7 cms! Woohoo! She took her sweet time but eventually progressed to complete, pushed badly (so we did some towel tug of war which really did the trick), but then had a cute little boy.
In the meantime, the same patient from Thanksgiving night that Medwife had scheduled for induction today showed up for a labor check. She was 6cms! So I kept her and she labored au naturale - and did a beautiful job even when I had to give her a little pitocin. She walked a lot, used the tub a couple times, and did a fabulous job.
Today we put the trees up but haven't done any decoration yet..will probably do throughout the week.
