Hoping that no update means that your baby is here! :)

Wound up having an induction by a hospital midwifery practice, instead of my birth center. The midwives were awesome, and didn't push the pit too much, or try and blast my baby out. I wound up getting an epidural out of pure exhaustion, but it was my own choice, nothing was pushed on me. It was a much better experience than I had anticipated, and I had a vaginal birth, no stiches!
