It's gonna be a loooooooong night.!.

Good evening everyone. Well as you know they broke my water this morning. Around 2pm I couldnt handle the contractions anymore so I got an epidural, it was great and I did not feel a thing, not even a prick. However it did not really work on my right side, but the Anesthesiologis came back in and shot two more viles down and I a real numb now. The doctor came in at 5:30pm and checked me...and guess what I am at a whopping THREE cm...yes 3 cm. He said he could stretch it to 4cm. When he came in I was hysterical about getting a c-section because the nurse had mentioned that if I was not dialtating after 18 hour from the time they broke my water then they would need to do one. I do not want one for so many reasons, mainly because I wont be able to spend as much time with Elisha and I will be sore and not be abe to give him a bath and stuff. I just got some anxiety medicine because I am just freaking out. And I know all this time he is in there without his water bubble it is not good for his fragile head. He is still moving around vibrantly, Praise God. PLEASE friends and family PLEASE pray I can start dialating and have my son vaginaly. I am so wore out so wore out I cant really sleep because of the anxiety, any noise I hear I jump, and when I close my eyes I keep having mini dreams but I am awake. I love my husband dearly he hasn't left my side...he is a wonderful husband and father, Enrique honey I love you. We said a prayer together a lil while ago just thanking God about the wonderful family and friends he has blessed us with. No one has been judgmental about our decisions, and everyone has stood behind us and supported us. We thank you all so very much. Thank you all for your prayers...and please keep praying we need it so, I am truly exhausted.

  1. Hi Shelley, I thought we would ck in tonight and I am sorry that you are at a 3. We will say a special prayer that active labor comes quickly. Breaking the water should speed things up. Try to escape with some music and have Enrique or someone tell you your favorite travel stories or special moments while your eyes are closed...you need to stay calm inside and send warm and fuzzy feelings from your head to your toes. I know easier said than done. We will ck in later,
    Love Debbie D.

  2. I had a baby due on January 19th. Sadly, "it" aka "he" to *me was considered a blighted ovum at my 11 week appointment. I also just lost a baby boy on December 18th. I was 15 weeks pregnant, and he (Drake) made it to 13 weeks. With me periodically visiting the January WTE board, I found your blog. PLEASE know you are in my WHOLE family's prayers, and I say this sincerely. God bless you and little Elisha. He is cared for even more than you know.

    MUCH LOVE AND PRAYERS,
    B

I lift up you and Enrique in the might name of Jesus, heavenly father bless Shelley to begin dilating naturally so she will bring forth Elisha without a c section, we bless your name Lord God and give you all praise and know that everything is in your hands.

  10. Hang in there you two! We prayed for you this morning at the tea room, that God's will be done and if possible a miracle be done for your baby. If not, we prayed that the two of you would be given the comfort and peace that you so richly deserve. If there's anything you need from Derald or me, please don't hesitate to call us.

    Your neighbors,
    Derald & Shirley

  11. Shellbell and Enrique...you are the two most strongest people I know...and if anyone can get though this, you can! You are in my prayers and thoughts. I wish I could be there with you! Hopefully you'll dilate more through the night. Love you.

  12. Shelly,
    I am on the Jan 09 WTE board and of course have followed your story. I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you and Elisha. I didnt know that you were so close in location to me until recently (just down the road in Valrico) but even if you were oceans away, I would still feel the same. I pray for strength for you and your family during this time and pray that you have as much time with Elisha as possible. (akg1978 on WTE - Amanda)

  13. I will be praying as well that you have had/will continue to have an easy labor, that you will dilate quickly and that Elisha will continue to stay vital and protected until you are able to deliver him so that you and Enrique may have time to spend with your son. My heart truly breaks for you, I cannot begin to express how much I admire yours and your husbands strength and faith, I wish you were able to look forward to this delivery with nothing but joy, and I pray for any miracle for you and your family. G-d bless you and G-d bless your sweet baby boy.

  14. Your doing GREAT Shelley!

    Positive thought is powerful and just know in your mind and heart that he WILL come vaginally and you WILL be able to spend at least -some- time with Elisha. Give your husband a hug for being such a great man, for being soo supportive and such an amazing father.

    *Hugs!* Get some rest.

  15. Thank you father for a quick vaginal delivery and for the strength you have given Shelly and Enrique. Thank you for the life of Elisha and for the time you will allow him to share with him mom and dad. Thank you for the doctors, nurses, friends and families that are lifting this situation up with prayer support and encouraging words from their heart. Thank you for your son, Jesus.

    Shelly, It's the heart lady. I love you girl and am continuing to stand in the gap for you as you labor "through" this. Remember, going through means you are coming out the other side and this will be a memory of yesterday. There is joy in the morning. Stay strong.
