At the advice of my guides I got an epidural. Not sure when. Maybe a half hour ago? I’m quite comfortable now. I was just getting too tired with too much to go. I think laboring for almost 12 hours before meds isn’t bad. I tried nitrous but that barely helped.

Waiting for a dilation check to see where we are at. Also had the joy of vomiting earlier so I look forward to applesauce soon. Hopefully that gives me strength too. Then a nap as I’ve been awake a long time.

Peanut is still doing fine but she has to suck up monitoring now.

Other notes. The tub helps a lot but slows down the contractions so I used it for rest. We never set up the birthing tub but that’s ok. We’ll get our deposit back.

This is the least amount of pain I’ve felt in months. Wow, such a relief! Now I’m going to enjoy the beautiful Colorado sunrise. 🙂
