At 3:20 the OB came in said she was going to check on Laura's progress at 4:30. Not 15 minutes later she was back, saying that the contractions where coming rapidly and they'd like to checker her now. Finding that she was only at 3.5 cm, they asked if we'd like to break Laura's wat... I mean cause membrane release. We decided to go with it.
Laura has said the contractions feel much harder, so it seems we are moving a bit faster, which is exactly what we hoped.
