FC: The day Teresa Joyce was born | July 12, 2010
1: Sunday, July 11, 2010 When we arrived at church that morning, almost everyone I saw made a comment about how "big" I was and how it looked as if my baby belly had protruded even more since last week...makes sense, I guess, for I was a week overdue. After lunch, I felt a different feeling in my lower belly, I found it hard to stand up straight through a brackston hicks contraction, At 3:30 that afternoon, I discovered my first "bloody show" when I went to the restroom. The BH contractions continued through the afternoon and into the evening. Then I called Janet, my midwife, around 6pm to tell her what I was feeling. We decided that we would call when I reached the point that I could no longer carry on a conversation or keep through a contraction. The night was spent taking warm showers, three to be exact, and laying down trying to get rest. Monday July 12, 2010 We called Janet again around 4am and she arrived at 5:55am. After an assessment, I was 9cm dilated and 100% effaced...let the pictures tell the rest of this birth story...
16: Now, unto HIm, Who is able to keep...able to keep you from falling, and present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. To the Only Wise God our Savior be glory and majesty, dominion and power both now and forever, Amen.
