Baby Aya has arrived! It was a long journey but worth the wait.

My labor was 37 and half hours long, at the 27th hour I was still only 3 cm and 70% effaced. I broke down and got the epi - I am a little sad about that but I still feel I tried my best.

I think the evening primrose actually did help induce - two days after taking it I lost my plug, followed by another day and half of intermittent contractions, on the third day I was in full blown labor. Thanks for the advice - at least I avoided the petocin induction and/or augmentation.

She is gorgeous, a little moving peanut, I am in love. Thanks for all the kind words and support. Happy new year to everyone!

Congratulations! Don't beat yourself up for anything about your birth--just learn from it and enjoy your baby!
