We’re here at the hospital! All checked in and hooked up. Thanks, Maggie for the beautiful hospital gown!
Check back to this page. I will update as regularly as I can. Thank you again for your prayers!!
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. (Psalm 46:1-5 NIV)
Contractions have been coming pretty regularly for a little while now! I imagine I’ll be asking for that epidural soon!! Nora’s steady little heartbeat plays over the fetal monitor. Our sweet nurse, Amy thinks Nora might be here by early afternoon. 🙂
I just asked my sister to turn the radio on here in the room. The song “Strong Enough” that I shared yesterday was on the radio. So perfect. No coincidence.
About to get my epidural!
The epidural has been administered successfully! “I. have become. comfortably numb.” – Pink Floyd
Still at 1cm, but pitocin drip has been upped which should progress things a little further. In about an hour Amy will check me again and will then break my water.
Surrounded by my beloved friends and family, heavenly saints and angels, I am completely blessed. I’m so encouraged by everyone cheering me on with your comments and prayers. Thank you for sharing in this with me!!
My water broke on its own and I’m at 3cm. Nora’s heartbeat sounds great and she’s enduring labor just fine! 🙂 My kids are here and sweet as heck.
Nora is taking her time! Still 3cm, but proceeding!
We also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. (Romans 5:3-4 NIV)
4cm. Taking a nap now.
8cm. Should be soon!! They’re setting up. Please pray!! 🙂
She is here!!! Big healthy cry!!! 5 lbs. 2 oz.
