time to push
ok, terri is now 10 cm and it is time to push. ally, john, and i gather around terri, and each take up strategic positions at her side. we assist by yelling "1...2...3...4...5...6...7...8...9...10" during each contraction, during which time terri is supposed to be pushing like crazy. rumor has it that i may have been yelling a bit intensely during the pushing.
after pushing for about 20 minutes, we could see the baby's hair. then a few minutes later, we could see the top of the head. after a few more minutes, the nurses told terri to stop pushing so we could wait for the doctor to arrive.
