Epidural here I come!

I will be getting my epidural here once the anesthesiologist gets here. I am at 3 cm but I'm hoping the epidural will relax and dilate me quicker like it did with Kyndra. Plus, it will help me get some sleep. I could've held out longer, but why wait? Hahaha

We are praying for you and thinking about you. I will try to keep up to date. Sleep would probably be good:p

Holly, I just wanna let you know that tons of us from cafemom that also have facebook have been talking about your strength for quite some time now. And, all of our mouses are getting quite worn out from constantly refreshing your blog for updates! Thanks for the updates!! I hope the epidural speeds things up for you. And, hopefully you can get some rest before you sweet angel gets here.

I agree, why wait? Hang in there Holly. I've been thinking of you all day. I left a comment earlier but I don't see it so maybe I'm doing something wrong. Regardless, you are in my prayers. I will check back in the morning. Stay strong Holly! You are an amazing woman and mommy.

I agree, sweet heart. Rest while you can. Pretty soon your arms will be filled with your sweet little angel, and you want to be rested as much as you can for that. So proud of you. Keep up the good work.

Still praying for you Holly! I hope you can get at least a little rest tonight. I will say a special prayer before bed, and will check first thing in the morning. So many CMs are waiting and praying, so God is definitely getting an earful tonight!! He is with you and your family most certainly!

Oh, yes that will help! I wish I would have gotten it sooner with Luke. It would have made things much more enjoyable! I'm headed to bed too, but I will check in first thing tomorrow! Good night dear!

Holly, I have been following your blog quietly since you got your diagnosis. I applaud you and your whole family for being so strong. Today is 5 years to the day I found out my lil Austin's heart beat was no longer there and I carried him for 5 more days. Here you are going through labor to bring your angel Carliegh to this earth to love. You are an amazing mama, Holly. May the lord bless you in so many ways. God Bless You Holly. BreAnne Stretch

I hope the drugs work and you can get the rest you need before the life changing moment happens of giving birth to your little angel Carleigh. I think what BreAnne Stretch said could not be said any better then that. You are the women, mother and wife so many of us only hope we could be.

God Bless you and your family. I just came across your blog from a journal on CM. Cling tight to God He will see you through, He will carry you through. Its been almost 4 years since my daughters birthday/angel day (she was stillborn from a blood clot that hemorhaged and ruptured in the umbilical cord) and God has seen us through every single day.

God bless you all....
