Monday Afternoon

It is 3pm Monday afternoon. My anxiety has subsided since I have been getting visitors. Dr checked me at around around 12:30 and I was BARELY a fingetip dialted. HOWEVER, my contractions are every minute and a half and last for 25 seconds and every contraction the pain gets worse. Here are the scenarios: if I do not dialte to much more by 5pm then I am going to go off everything, eat, shower, sleep, and start Cervadil again and Pitocin again in the morning and start over...but if I am dialated pretty good at 5pm then he is going to go ahead and break my water and pray it starts moving faster. I am not on any pain meds yet because the nurse said that after I get Stadol a couple time it is less and less effective, and I should not get an epidural until I am at least 4cm dialted., I am exhausted right now and am going to TRY to rest but these contractions are relentless. I knew that this was not going to be easy, I just felt that this was going to take a long time. Honestly I suppose I am not ready for this to happen, the thought of it happening today actually scares me, I am not ready. She told me tonight I can get the Ambien again along with the anxiety medicine again. Well, I am going to lay down and see if I can fall asleep every minute and half...hehe. Goodnight for an afternoon nap, and thanks for checking in on us. Will give you an update after 5pm. : )

  2. I know you dont know me, but I have been praying for you since I heard the original news!!! So I am praying of course for a miracle and he is ok! But just in case, I pray that you have time to let him know how wonderful he is and how much he is loved. I cried a long time last night after reading your posts and hurt for you so much for everything you have gone through! God is with you and will carry you all. It is hard to believe that everything happens for a reason in cases like this, but perhaps you will understand His plan for you soon enough. Much love and many hugs, Cindy (CindyLouSchu on Feb WTE Board)

  5. Shelley I know I haven't seen you in years,but I want you to know you and your family are in my heart, thoughts, and prayers. I know that this can not be an easy time for you and I can not begin to understand what you are going through, however I hope that you continue to look to good for your answers and know that behind all of the confusion there is purpose. Always remember that tears are a cleansing of the soul.
