I received a brief update this evening along with instructions to "pass it on." Here's what I know so far:
1. Ashley was admitted to the hospital last night around 10pm
2. She went into active labor around 2am (on her own!!)
3. By 10:30 am she had dilated to 4cm, but hadn't slept all night
4. According to a 6pm text message from Todd, Ashley got an epidural because she stalled at 4cm and was finally able to get some rest. (Hopefully that will re-energize her for the big finish.)
That's all I know folks. I would imagine they are both exhausted at this point and ready for a conclusion. Again, please continue to pray for a safe and healthy delivery for both mom and baby. If I hear anything else, I'll send another update.
