Wierdest call ever

So I'm on call, and just got paged. My term patient thinks her water broke, so she had her hubby check her.

"He got 2 fingers in and so I'm probably 7 cm dilated! He also felt the head!"


Oy!

Tell him to just leave his finger there to hold it in, until someone else is on call.

Like the little Dutch boy plugging the dike with his finger.

I was wondering how "two fingers" meant "7 centimeters"!
