"At 1:30 p.m. we got good news and bad news: I was 8 centimeters dilated, but the baby was sunny side up. The doctor had me change positions again to try to get the baby to flip. I kept moving into different positions, but our baby stubbornly refused to turn over."
"As contractions intensified, they were so frequent that they were practically one on top of another. I hardly had time to catch my breath before the next one would overtake my body. This ended up being worse, in my opinion, than any amount of pain I was feeling."
