Laboring for a Gift

Here I am at the beginning of an off and on again labor. Thanks to the doctor and nurses, my labor was stopped 3 times leading to a 12 hour labor. UGH!!! My doctor had a date and ordered the induction to be stopped this was after we found out I had two water sacks. Double UGH!!!!! Thank heavens she was still a girl by the time she got here.

Before contractions began.

After contractions, before epidural.

What are moms for?
