Up for the moment

I have woken up so I thought I'd write. My epidural seems to be concentrated more on my left side. My left leg is completely dead. It was quite comical trying to change the pad underneath me. I just had to laugh. I have some ice chips because my throat is kinda dry. Anthony and Ashley are sleeping in my room and the rest of the family is spread out among a few waiting rooms. Some are awake and some are sleeping. I'm surprised that everyone has stuck around. I thought a few were going to leave and then come back. What troopers. I don't feel Carleigh kicking as much but that could be because of the epidural. She's been checked twice on the doppler and her heart rate is in the 140's. She had me worried when I checked it myself the first time because it took me awhile to find it. I am starting to feel contractions more on my right side. If they get stronger Erin will have the anesthesiologist come and check to see if she can help fix that. Right now it's not too bothersome. It's funny how things can be so different from labor to labor.

I woke up to go to the bathroom and HAD to check in. It sounds like you have alot of support and it is obvious how many people Carleigh has touched. Try to get some rest if you can. I will check in on you agian when I wake back up. I am going to say another prayer and try to get some rest myself!
