He just broke my water!!!!!!

Ok...I had an EXCELLENT nights sleep PRAISE GOD. I needed it so very bad. The nurse came in this morning while I was sleeping and took the Cervadil out and put the IV back in my hand of Pitocin, at 6am. Contractions started at around 8am, the Dr came in at 8:50 checked me I was at 1cm, he put on a glove with a point on the end, stuck it as farrrrrrrr as he could and there she blew. I definalety some Polyhydramnios brewing in there (excess amniotic fluid). I cried my eyes out, I am not ready for this. I cried like a little girl. Contractions are hurting much worse now and I have to start making the phone calls ok....change of plans...Enrique is making phone calls and I am passing out...they just gave me Stadol and I am seeing three screenssssss. Will check in later..love you all and thank you for checking in on us and keeping your prayers with us.

  2. Thank you so much for keeping us updated Shelley. I can only imagine how much of a roller coaster this has been and will be for you! Stay strong we are here for you and keeping you in our prayers!

  3. Shelley, you are an inspiration of strength. You are wholly in my heart and I hope that by the higher power that guides us, Elisha is given the opportunity to meet you and Enrique. You both deserve that graceful moment. Elisha is strong to have hung out in there till today like you have predicted! Mom knows best.
    I have followed your experience on the January board, albeit I'm due in March. You are truly a pillar of strength. May you find peace within during such tumultuous times emotionally. Bless you, your husband and ALL of your family.
