Resting and Awake Now

After Karen came in early this morning and told Jenn she was only 7cm and that she could have 2-4 hours to go, she really got discouraged. She didn't see an end in sight and didn't know if she had the energy to get to the end and then push. After taking the meds to sleep she is charged up and ready to go again. She is awake in bed, laying on her side and handling the contractions like a trooper again.

These are a few pictures of her laboring right before making the decision to sleep. She now feels she has the energy to go the rest of the way with no medicine.

Using the birth ball, she actually Pops to "shhh" at one point.

Mom just said, "I can't think of a time I was more proud of you Jenn." The Lord gives us what we can handle and support for what we feel we cannot.

I was sure Johnny would be here by now. Jenn, labor is bad enough, but I don't think I could take the camera in my face on top of that. I'm sure Johnny will appreciate the documentation some day, though. I think your brothers must be in absolute awe of their little sister. I know I am!
