I got a text from Carla at 12:17 AM saying "I'm in labor! Came to L&D about 10:30 pm for what I thought was another false alarm but nope real this time! Contractions are about 2 mins apart and am dilated to 3 1/2 currently. Will keep you posted!"

ELV's Carla!!!!!! I'm so excited for you and can't wait to meet your baby girl!!!

---
3:54 AM: Carla wrote "Made it to 4 cm before I got the epidural about 3 AM. Still having regular contractions right on top of each other even with the epi so they are happy to see that. Should be resting but I'm so excited I can't!"

---
4:37 AM: Got another text- "Just got checked again. 4 1/2 dilated and having bloody show. We're getting there slowly but surely! Contractions still right on top of one another."

---
7:06 AM: Carla wrote "They just started me on pitocin because my BP has been in the 150's/90's the whole time and my dr wants me to deliver. The last check was a few hours ago and I was at a 5. I think my water may have broken. I felt a few gushes but waiting on the nurse to confirm!"

Good luck girl! Hang in there!!!

---
9:48 AM: Got another update- "BP is still too high so they started me on mag :-( My dr was not happy they didn't tell her about my BP last night. She came and broke my water because I got stuck at 5. Still feeling okay but the mag is making me feel a bit worse."

Hopefully she'll progress quickly now and the next update will be that Lexi is here!

---
11:23 AM: "6-7 cm now, completely effaced, and baby has dropped into my bum! My epi wore off but they refilled my bag so hopefully that kicks in soon! BP still running high even with the mag so waiting on the dr to make rounds again."

---
Alexis Nicole is here!! Born at 4:27 PM, 7 lbs 2 oz, 18 1/2 inches!



Carla wrote "Labor was 20 hours 37 minutes, but pushing was only 27 mins! She swallowed a bit of fluid and was grunting so she's in the nursery for now but we are so in love! She's gorgeous and perfect"

CONGRATS Carla!!!! I'm so happy for you!!
