A long night ahead…

Things are finally calm here. I’ve been sick with a bad cold for 2 days and hadn’t slept from it and contractions since 3 am Weds. When I realized this might be it, I knew energy would be a problem.

I was having really good contractions when I got to the hospital, but wasn’t dilating. The Dr. Broke my water to make them stronger. Boy, did it. The baby flipped to face up causing horrible back labor. I was nearly falling over trying to handle them with sleep deprivation.  We went over my pain options and I went with epidural because I need to sleep
At this point, I was still only 3cm but 95% effaced.

I now have that in and am trying to relax enough to sleep. Too much adrenaline! They are giving me fluids to raise my blood pressure, but baby looks great and I feel the tightening of contraction regularly.
They are flipping me to get baby to face the right way.

No other news. Gonna try to sleep.
